THE BLACK CHOOK
McLaren Vale/Padthaway, South Australia
South Australian Shiraz is one of the world’s most
popular wine styles, and a splash of Viognier adds an
attractive floral twist. Look for big flavours of black-
berry jelly, licorice and peppercorn gravy.

DOG POINT SAUVIGNON BLANC 2016
Marlborough, South Island, New Zealand
From two of the creators of Cloudy Bay, the wine that
put Marlborough Savvy on the map, this complex,
mineral-etched wine shows lemon, lime, melon,
crushed rocks and pretty floral notes.

SPARKLING CUVÉE ROSÉ
Pink bubbly adds a splash of colour and efferves-
cence to any shindig, soiree, wingding or hootenanny.
This one is crisp, clean and fresh, with notions of
citrus and strawberry.
