Méditerranée Rosé (Fr)
From the warm south, this wine exemplifies the French style - light and invigorating. The colour is the palest of apricot, there are fresh lively citrus aromas and the palate is dry and crisp. Perfect summer drinking with fun foods and fun people. Voilà.

El Payador 2017
Malbec Mendoza Argentina
As expected, this is a deep crimson colour and has a lovely juicy-fruited nose with liquorice. The medium-bodied palate is long and savoury and driven by red berries and rounded tannins with oak playing a minor part. The Argentineans would eat half a cow with this; you’ll probably be a little more circumspect.

Forest Hill 2018
Highbury Fields Sauvignon Blanc
Like many clever winemakers nowadays, Great Southern’s Forest Hill partially barrel ferments its sauvignon blanc to add structure, texture and complexity to the wine. It’s immediately apparent by a whiff of smoke and then some grip and fullness on the palate. The varietal herbal characters are still there, they’re just subdued.
