The Region: Salento is the heel of Italy, a sun-kissed peninsula at the southern tip of the Puglia winegrowing region. It boasts a picturesque coastline, deep-blue seas and a rural landscape full of olive groves and vineyards spotted with ancient villages. Grown here for centuries, Primitivo is a flagship grape and a source of pride. The hot dry climate is tempered by cool breezes from the surrounding seas making for excellent growing conditions.

The Wine: A lush Primitivo loaded with flavours of dark berries, cherries and plum, with accents of warm baking spice and dried fruit character. Juicy ripe fruit is perfectly balanced with racy acidity and fine-grained tannins for a smooth rounded finish.

Reserve your kit before Friday, November 13, 2020.

The Regions: Marlborough, New Zealand and Lodi, California, USA. Marlborough garners much acclaim for its cool climate Pinot Noirs. The region enjoys plenty of sunshine and the moderate temperatures see a strong swing between day and night, fostering strong varietal expression. Lodi also sees big temperature changes from day to night, which helps Gamay retain its characteristic acidity.

The Wine: Gamay Noir and Pinot Noir are the perfect pair – both varietals feature high natural acidity and low tannins, making this an extremely food-friendly wine. Cherry and cranberry on the nose with a subtle floral note.
Strawberry and cherry flavours are accented by an undertone of savoury spice. Vibrant and versatile with freshness and finesse. Try chilling Double Noir for one hour before serving.

Reserve your kit before Friday, November 13, 2020.

The Region:   Mendoza, Argentina.  At the foot of the Andes and an average of 900m above sea level, Mendoza boasts some of the highest vineyards in the world and Torrontes grows particularly well at this elevation. The hot, semi-arid climate is tempered by cool mountain nights, helping the varietal to retain acidity. Dry, rocky soils mean the vines have to work harder for nutrients thereby producing smaller, more concentrated grapes. 

The Wine:  Torrontes and Muscat, two aromatic whites, share many similarities making them ideal blending partners.  Expect floral aromas, fresh peach and citrus flavours and bright acidity. Torrontes, Argentina’s
signature white wine grape, lends notes of rose petal, geranium and peach, complemented by Muscat’s
honeysuckle, mandarin orange and stone fruit flavours.

Reserve your kit before Friday, November 13, 2020.

The Region: Sicily, Italy. Sun-kissed Sicily has been growing grapes for more than 3,000 years; the hot temperatures, consistent sunshine and moderate rainfall make it a wine haven. The slopes around Mount Etna on the island’s east coast are a sweet spot for Nerello, where the higher elevation brings cooler nighttime temperatures which help maintain the grape’s desirable acidity. The volcanic soils impart mineral notes on the grape, and with Etna’s frequent eruptions, soil
composition is constantly transforming.

The Wine: Grown on the slopes of an active volcano, Nerello is a wine that knows how to get your attention and keep it. Appealing aromas of cherry, strawberry and rose unfold into juicy red berry and crushed strawberry flavours with hints of cinnamon and herbs. Sleek and savoury with earthy and mineral nuances,fresh acidity and smooth, polished tannins.

The Region: Lodi, California, USA. Located in the middle of California’s Central Valley, Lodi has a classic Mediterranean climate of warm days and cool nights, and benefits from cool breezes blowing inland from the San Francisco
Bay area – a climate that helps lend grapes a refreshing natural acidity. The mineral rich, sandy soils and dry growing season allow growers to precisely manage vine growth through irrigation, producing more concentrated flavours.

The Wine: Chardonnay, Riesling and Pinot Grigio come together in perfect synergy in this lively off-dry white with tropical and stone fruit flavours, bright acidity and a crisp balanced finish. Chardonnay provides texture, notes of green apple, pineapple and citrus. Riesling offers lively acidity and floral aromas. Pinot Grigio rounds out the blend with juicy peach, apricot and pear flavours.

The Regions: Riverland, Australia, Lodi, California, USA. The Riverland region wraps around the Murray Darling river, basking in the hot South Australia sun.

The winding river provides relief from the sometimes-intense heat, vital access to water for irrigation, and contributes to the region’s fertile soils.

The Wine: Australian Grenache and Shiraz combine with California Tannat to make this plush, charismatic blend. Grenache provides notes of raspberry and spice. Tannat brings gripping tannins and a whisper of licorice, while Shiraz imparts black plum and peppercorn. This wine layers delicious dark fruit and red berry with complex notes of vanilla, peppery spice, and subtle smoke completed by racy acidity, big tannins and a lengthy finish.
