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.

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.
A dark cloak and his inseparable hat: everyone in Carrù loved listening to the stories of the whimsical Count Griffo.
Amber, with copper hues, it is an easy to sip Amber Belgian Ale. With a balsamic and spicy fragrance, it conquers the palate with notes of oregano and Sichuan pepper. Intense and malty finish.
The body is medium and the foam persistent.
Pair it with traditional Italian cold cuts, long-cooked meats or Thai dishes.

Birra Carrù is an independent craft microbrewery from Piedmont, Italy.
Barbera is the hardy staple grape of the famous Piedmont region in Northern Italy. The grape accounts for around 55% of the wine produced in that region.
A tough, non-fussy grape, Barbera has been known to be flexible in its acclimation to different regions. It’s typically a deep ruby color with low tannin and bracing, high acidity.
Pinot blanc, South Tyrol’s most important grape variety, has awakened from its slumber and has evolved a calling-card wine for the region. Schulthauser, having been vinified and bottled for the first time in 1982, is the consummate South Tyrolean Pinot blanc. This wine isn’t ostentatious, but is the consummate fresh-and-fruity Pinot blanc, the enjoyment of which is found both in its creamy softness and its lively acidity.
A premium aperitif and summer wine, it is also quite versatile when it comes to food pairing: it goes well not only with seafood and fish but also with delicate dishes made with wild fowl. It is especially recommended as an accompaniment to South Tyrolean Schlutzkrapfen.

Founded in 1877 by Jean Bouillot the estate of Louis Bouillot is a specialist Crémant de Bourgogne producer now run by Jean-Claude Boisset and it produces a range of excellent Méthode Traditionnelle sparkling wines from sites across the Côte d’Or.
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.

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.
Poiré comes mainly from pears from the Domfront region, made from the know-how of maceration and successive fermentations. Fresh and fruity, a nose with aromas of slightly cooked pears, combining acidity and fruity. Ideal for your aperitif moments with friends and desserts. Blend of sweet/sour pears.
This beautiful cider is truly a traditional French Cider. Lower in alcohol levels than most Australian ciders, you’ll find this smoother to drink.
