Winter - the season that's the perfect reason to get to know your wines a little more, and adventure to new horizons too. Here’s a few gems that we’re getting excited about at the moment, great to pair with days when the air is a little crisp.


Godello

If you’re a chardonnay and chenin blanc fan, make godello your next go-to. Capable of expressing itself in a range of styles (all of them delicious) and super food-friendly, it’ll bring a lick of the summer sun to your glass on a dark evening anytime it’s required. With lashings of texture, it’s a perfect pairing to pan fried white fish, roast chook, pork, or pumpkin & sage ravioli.

Garnatxa Blanca

Another white that’s becoming all the more popular - garnatxa blanca produces rich, full-bodied whites that are brimming with fresh stone fruits and florals, underpinned by a mineral fresh finish. If you’re a lover of fuller chardy and looking for something a bit same-same but different to switch it up this season, grab a garnatxa blanca - we’re willing to be you won’t be disappointed.

Nebbiolo

The northern Italian marvel that’s producing ridiculously good reds in Barolo, Barberesco and worldwide - its delicately thin skins produce a wine that’s pale in colour but rich in supple tannin and taste; floral, red fruited, savoury and complex in all of the best ways. A great wine to romance with roast lamb or mushroom-based dishes by candelight - or a tomato-based pizza from your local takeout and the latest Netflix binge-watch.

Cabernet franc

The “other” cabernet that’s more than worthy of your attention. Most famously used as a supporting act to cabernet sauvignon and merlot in Bordeaux blends, in its pure, single varietal form you’ll see its own personality in fine show. Elegant, floral, fruity reds that have that classic capsicum pepper greeness that’s the calling card of the cabernet family - cab franc being cab sav’s parent grape. With slightly less body than you’d find in cab sav, it’s perfect for those blue sky winter weekends where the mercury isn’t keen on getting much above double digits.

Malbec

The big gun from Bordeaux that’s found a new home in Argentina. Malbec’s ideal to get around this season - bold, dark fruited and rich, well suited to lovers of cab sav at a price point that delivers exceptional value. Pair with a succulent roast beef joint with the friends and fam, or a wedge of mature cheddar or blue cheese with crackers in front of your favourite film on a rainy afternoon.
