In Piedmontese, Bogia Nen means that it does not move and refers to the passive temperament, but also to the stubbornness, of the inhabitants of the region.
Golden, slightly cloudy, it is a Saison with an original Piedmontese character: all the raw materials are grown and processed without ever moving outside the region. Spicy aromas stand out, while on the palate it wins over for its pungent, dry and thirst-quenching aroma. The body is medium and the foam persistent.
Pair it with vegetable dishes, grilled fish or summer salads.

Birra Carrù is an independent craft microbrewery from Piedmont, Italy.
A dry Provencal classic made of cinsault with grenache, syrah and merlot too, this is bright and summery with strawberries, pomegranate spritz and richer vanilla aromas. Crunchy-fresh with sour-red grapefruit to start, it then mellows with a creamy edge to the strawberry fruit.
Pale straw. Tropical notes of passionfruit, grapefruit and blackcurrant combine with salty mineral notes. The palate is rich and weighty and full of flavours of grapefruit and blackcurrant along with green notes of nettle and capsicum. A subtle sea salt character leads to a long lingering mineral finish.
Light to medium density with purple edges. Lifted smokey, dark cherry and pastille aromas that keep you returning to smell them. Perfect ‘sweet fruit’ flavours on the initial palate and then a slight maraschino cherry note. Sweet oak and juicy acidity give a long lasting flavour combination.

We think Braida makes the best Brachetto in the world. It is a highly aromatic sweet wine, which
is most often produced in the Charmat method (fermentation in a pressurized tank to create
bubbles). Braida’s Brachetto is soft, fruity, and a beautiful deep rose colour. It smells intensely
floral and slightly musky, with plenty of ripe red strawberry and raspberry on the palate. It is not
cloying, and has a fantastic refreshing finish. This is the best wine to match with chocolate.
Moorilla’s Praxis Pinot Noir is a contemporary Tasmanian expression of new-world wine techniques. Generous, plush, mouth filling. A plunging amalgam of cherry, dried strawberries and ripe black fruits. Acidity here is supporting and soft, the emphasis is on the bold flavour. A pinot best drunk young – with good friends and fine food.

Green apple and lime zest mix with preserved lemons on the zesty nose; the mouth is clean, crisp and refreshing, with a bit more juice and body, but finishes with a sensation of citrus and salt.

Artus is an artistic translation of our local Gin Gin clone into wine. It is a provocative, complex and textural wine exuding the seductive spirit of “old world” chardonnay. The vines have been managed to allow only dappled light into the fruiting zone. This promotes flavor development, low tannins and bright levels of natural acidity. The fruit is farmed in the cool southern end of Margaret River. The tiny 100g Gin Gin clusters are hand harvested at first light to preserve freshness of fruit.
Flavours of fresh nectarines and candied pecan nuts are supported by aromas of poached pears and marzipan.

The wine finishes fermenting in barrel; Using a combination of new and old French and American oak. A small percentage of cordon cut, vine dried Shiraz is added to the wine prior to bottling.

One of the most recognised estates in Bandol, thanks largely to US wine merchant Kermit Lynch, who’s sung its praises since the 70s. Lulu Peyraud, who ran the estate with her the late husband Lucien from the 30s, is still gong strong at 103. Incredible. The rosé is a blend of approximately 55% mourvèdre, 25% grenache and 20% cinsault.
“The Bandol Tempier Rosé offers a unique blend of complexity and freshness. It has a fine structure, with no tannin. The high-quality care given to the vines and the diversity of the terroirs produce a flavorful intensity and a strong typicity.”Winemaker’s notes.
