A fine Chilean Cabernets, aged for 12 months in French fine grain Allier oak barrels, this beaut has intense flavours of blackcurrant, chocolate and an aroma cigar boxes. It’s full-bodied and balanced and best paired with pork ribs, roast lamb or an earthy selection of mushrooms.

Deep, dark, rich and loads of berries with a subtle use of both old and new oak combined with soft tannins and if that’s Greek to you, let us assure you, those are awesome attributes for wine.

Pair it with steaks or grilled veggies and do something truly ‘new’ this New Year.

This one hits on spicy notes with an intense fruit aroma, notes of toast, truffle, white chocolate and spices {clove, pepper}. Mature tannins allow you to age the wine, so stock up!

This is best enjoyed with lamb and dishes with asparagus and artichoke.

Mudhouse Sauvignon Blanc

There's no ignoring white wines when it comes to robust flavours. Add more white to the frost with a wine that is all about fresh greens and ripe tropical flavours. The crisp grapefruit like acidity extends the palate and pairs superbly with all things chicken but you could go duck and turkey too, it’s the New Year after all!

Bellavista Franciacorta

Can’t ignore Italy when it comes to wine. Rich in ripe fruits and vanilla, this bubbly, crisp white is ideal for a long evening by the bonfire. A combination of Chardonnay, Pinot Bianco and Pinot Nero makes it perfect to pair with Italian food, go for a pasta and use good parmesan.
