A rich, complex blend of Chardonnay, Sauvignon Blanc and Grenache Blanc. Semi-golden, melony colour with a nose of white flowers. Attractive palate of ripe pineapple but very well balanced by refreshing acidity. Best served not too cold to get the best out of the aromas and flavours.

2013 Moulin de Gassac Guilhem Rouge – $9.59
Quite a rustic offering, with a real ‘goût de terroir’ (taste of the soil), this distinctive Syrah-blend has a fragrant, earthy nose of black fruit and herbs, and a fresh, moderately-tannic palate of baked blackberry pie, nutmeg and cedar. Another super value at under $10.

2014 Moulin de Gassac Pinot Noir – $12.80
Elegant light red with brick tint. Complex and delicate nose. Candied cherry, light roasted hints and mocha with mouthwatering abundant fruit. A beautiful freshness and soft tannins made it a balanced and fine Pinot. Fruit forward finish with soft tannins.

Rich, complex blend of Cabernet Sauvignon, Merlot and Syrah. Dark inky ruby showing a big nose of ripe plum, rose petal and creamy toffee with a note of aged cheese. The palate is quite complex.
