Trintaudon Bordeaux (France) The nose is dominated by fresh red fruit, backed by subtle oaky aromas which add to the overall complexity.

Ideal with a selection of cured meats and cheeses or served with grilled meat dishes. $15.99

Willm Gentile Reserve (Alsace) Subdued notes of ripe pear suggest mellowness. The palate adds fitting, bright freshness and provides a very balanced, if subdued picture. This immensely versatile wine has a dry, fresh finish. This wine pairs well with savory pies, light fare, salads, seafood & melted cheese dishes. $14.99

Jean-Luc Colombo Cotes Du Rhone (France) On the nose, violets combine with plums and cassis. This is a silky wine with dark red fruit and a hint of spice on the palate. The perfect bistro or food-friendly wine which pairs with everything from roasted chicken, lamb, pork, charcuterie to assorted cheeses. $15.99

Greywacke Sauvignon Blanc (New Zealand) Enticing aromas of cassis, lemon sorbet and green mango, with a delicate dusting of white pepper spice. On the palate, juicy Winter Cole pear and baked apple pie notes are lifted by fragrant layers of elderflower, yuzu and ripe citrus. An elegant yet striking interpretation of Marlborough sauvignon blanc – textural and opulent, lifted and lingering. $26.99
