• COCKBURN’S

    FINE TAWNY WINE

    PORTUGAL

    Cockburn’s was founded in 1815 by the Scottish brothers Robert and John Cockburn. Originally wine merchants in Leith, Scotland, their Port house was founded with the objective of securing a supply of excellent wine at its source which would give them an advantage over the influx of poor quality, cheap Port which was so common in Britain at the time. In the words of Robert Cockburn himself, “the quality of the wine – that is the first thing to be looked to”. Guided by this conviction, Cockburn’s was also influenced by the personalities of the great individuals and families who throughout its history joined its ranks. The Smithes, Teages, and Cobbs, to name only the most influential, would follow the vision of Robert Cockburn and develop the company into one of the greatest names in Port. When purchased in 1962 by a multinational corporation, the quality of the wine began to wane, and although in the early 20th century Cockburn’s Vintage Ports demanded the highest price of all Ports, one hundred years later their reputation had fallen significantly. Following the Symington family’s acquisition of Cockburn’s in 2010, and the company’s return to family ownership, forty-eight years of corporate decision making was revised, and the company focus was shifted back to one thing: the quality of the wine.

    DRIED FRUITS, CARAMEL, NUTS, BERRIES AND A HINT OF BARREL AGEING, ALL AT THE SAME TIME.

    It’s easy to drink, lighter in colour than Ruby Port and not yet as complex as our Aged Tawny Ports (10 Years Old & 20 Years Old).

    AGEING

    The flavours of wood ageing have influenced this wine. So it has a lovely nuttiness but it also still has the chewy fruitiness, with flavours of raisins and dried figs, of our younger fruit-driven wines.

    HOW TO SERVE

    For some time the preserve of the French and the Portuguese, Tawny Port now has many more international admirers. Serve it any time of the day or night as long as it’s chilled and shared with friends and family. It will stay fresh for at least 8 weeks once opened and you don’t need to worry about decanting.

    FOOD PAIRING

    Cockburn’s Fine Tawny is a very good match with rich, creamy desserts, or dried fruits. Or a local secret is to pour it generously over vanilla ice cream: there is no treat quite like it.

    APPEARANCE

    Bright reddish tawny colour

    AROMA

    On the nose light and crisp young fruit aromas are balanced with a nutty toffee mellowness achieved through maturation in oak casks.

    PALATE

    Elegant and well balanced

    FINISH

    A smooth and subtle long finish

    THE EASY-GOING, UP-FOR-ANYTHING YOUNGSTER

    The cheeky, punch-packing ripe fruit of our Fine Ruby Port makes it the perfect Port for everyday, informal occasions. It’s versatile.

    WINEMAKING

    We blend several young wines from a few different years to give our Fine Ruby the richness and the fresh fruit that you would expect of a zesty young Port. It is then matured for a few years in large vats, which gives it both its lovely softness and its ripe red fruits flavours. It also keeps the intense, deep purple colour of a nice and bright young Port.

    HOW TO SERVE

    Cockburn’s Fine Ruby Port can be drunk in almost any way you can imagine. As a result, it has always been a very popular wine. Serve it slightly cool or at room temperature in a generous glass.

    FOOD PAIRING

    It pairs perfectly with cheeses or chocolate cake. Once opened, it will stay fresh for up to six weeks, so you have plenty of time to enjoy.

    APPEARANCE

    Lively light ruby colour

    AROMA

    THE ELEGANCE OF AGE, THE ENERGY OF YOUTH. WARM AND WELCOMING.

    Take top quality grapes (trodden) and plenty of seasoned wood barrels. Lay aside to rest. Then just add Time.

    Our Special Reserve Port was first created in 1969. Then, it was the first of its kind and caused a revolution in the way Port was seen and drunk by people around the world. Our winemakers have stayed true to the original style of this remarkable wine. We select only the finest, most concentrated flawlessly perfect grapes from Cockburn’s vineyards at Quinta dos Canais, which are picked by hand during the harvest and then after a little ‘pisa’ (that’s our word for grape-treading in Portugal) we turn these into wine.

    AGEING

    The wine is then aged in seasoned oak barrels, handmade by our own team of coopers and this is when we add our special ingredient, a good serving of Time. We mature our Special Reserve for longer than other reserve Ports.

    What’s so special about that? Well, these extra years in the barrels are what give Cockburn’s Special Reserve its characteristic balance and smoothness.

    APPEARANCE

    Garnet red colour

    AROMA

    A youthful nose packed with rich and concentrated aromas of red fruits, predominantly red cherry and hints of plums and strawberry.

    PALATE

    Sweet, well rounded, medium length.

    FINISH

    Luscious red berry flavours leading to a distinctive dry finish, balanced with fine wood-aged flavours.

  • JACOB’S CREEK

    CLASSIC SERIES WINE

    AUSTRALIA

    HISTORY: The name ‘Jacob’s Creek’ is embedded in the origins of the Orlando winery whose history can be traced back to 1847 when young Bavarian immigrant Johann Gramp planted the first commercial vineyard in the Barossa Valley in South Australia.

    His chosen site was the banks of a small natural waterway known as Jacob’s Creek; situated in the heart of the Barossa Valley which is now one of Australia’s most renowned wine regions.

    Johann’s pioneering spirit was celebrated in 1976 with the launch in Australia of the first  “Jacob’s Creek”wine – a Shiraz Cabernet Malbec blend made from the 1973 vintage.  It rapidly became one of Australia’s most popular red wines and became an international success story when Orlando began exporting the wines in 1984.

    Acquired by Pernod Ricard in 1989. Jacob’s Creek soon became Australia’s most successful export brand and in 1993 won the Australian Exporters of the Year. In the following year, Jacob’s Creek won the highly coveted Maurice O’Shea award in recognition of its outstanding contribution to the Australian wine industry.
    Soon after a new era for Jacob’s Creek began with the launch of its Sparkling Chardonnay Pinot Noir in 1998 and the Reserve range in 2000.
    Today, the Jacob’s Creek Visitor Centre welcomes over 150,000 visitors from all over the world every year, overlooking the same creek where it all began with Johann Gramp planting his first vines over 185 years ago.

    KNOW-HOW

    Jacob’s Creek’s philosophy is all about producing fresh, contemporary elegant wines which are ready upon release,  and can also be enjoyed over time with careful cellaring. They are renowned for their consistent quality and styles available to suite any occasion.

    The grapes are sourced from several wine-growing regions in southeast Australia. This enables the winegrowers to select the ideal grapes for each style of wine, and achieve consistent high quality by overcoming the weather-related variability that can be experienced in a single region. The aim is to produce wines which express the true character of each grape variety, while maintaining perfect balance.

    Founded in 1844 by at young English doctor, Dr Christopher Rawson Penfold, vine cuttings from the south of France were planted around the site of the modest stone cottage he built with his wife Mary at Magill, on the outskirts of Adelaide.

    Penfolds™ reputation for making wines of provenance and cellaring potential might suggest a mantle of tradition and formality is the preferred attire of a company with so much history to defend. But to label Penfolds as simply an established and conventional winemaker, would be to confuse tradition with consideration and to overlook the innovative spirit that has driven Penfolds since its foundation, and continues to find expression in modern times.

  • WILD ROCK

    GRAVEL PIT RED WINE

    NEW ZEALAND

    The Wild Rock Wine Company is a producer of regionally diverse wines from a combination of owned, leased and contracted vineyards in Hawke’s Bay, Martinborough, Marlborough and Central Otago.

    Hawkes Bay is blessed with a diverse range of soils and microclimates that create endless possibilities for winegrowing. In the cooler coastal and river terraces we grow finely flavored and aromatic Chardonnay and Pinot Gris. The Gimblett Gravels Winegrowing District is also located here. It’s the countries warmest place to grow wine and home to our Syrah, Merlot and Malbec vineyards.

    We found some of the rockiest, driest ground in Martinborough, a handkerchief sized pocket of New Zealand’s North Island, where it seldom rains. Then we planted the old river terraces with the newest available Pinot Noir clones from France and left them to it. The result is our Strugglers Flat Pinot Noir, and modesty aside we have to say we’re pretty pleased.

    Just south of Martinborough, at the tip of the South Island is the world renowned Marlborough region, the New World’s home of Sauvignon Blanc. We’ve chosen to plant our vineyards in the young, stony soils of the Wairau Valley, an area that produces pure, intensely flavored grapes of exceptional quality. Our growers here tend these vines meticulously and passionately – they are true winegrowers.

    The ruggedly beautiful Otago region is the world’s most southern winegrowing district and the birthplace of our Cupids Arrow Pinot Noir. This dry, sunny and almost continental climate produces highly aromatic, wildly flavored, softly textured wines that are without a doubt, unique and special. We often say that the vineyards here produce wine as dramatic and vivid as the environment.

  • LARRAL

    SHIRAZ WINE

    AUSTRALIA

    The South Eastern Wine Region of Australia covers a wide range of wine growing areas, including the eastern parts of South Australia down to the Coonawarra, all the producing areas of Victoria and New South Wales and even the southern parts of Queensland. Grapes from the region can therefore originate from various areas and be blended to make some of the finest wines in Australia.

    Our wines are made from grapes from a specific vineyard area that winds itself along both sides of Australia™s major waterways, the Murray River. Towns in this proximity include Merbein, Mildura, Red Cliffs, Robinvale and Euston. An estimated +20% of the national annual grape crush comes from this area.

    This region is one of the major grape growing regions in the whole of Australia, as its long periods of sunshine giving hot and dry days in summer and more milder days in winter. Its natural water supply are perfect inputs for the production of beautiful grapes with fine ripe fruity flavours as evidenced in these wines we present to you.

    In fact the Murray River is the most important water source, as the climate simply does not offer sufficient rainfall to sustain the production of grapes by itself. Over use of this water system for agriculture, however has placed an enormous strain on the river. It now has a high salt content and it is estimated that as low as only 20% of the water reaches the ocean in South Australia.

    The climatic conditions help in the deterrence of disease, which can be a problem in other cooler regions with greater daily temperature changes and higher rainfalls. This means that year on year there is a good chance of presenting more consistent quality and quantity of wine than in some other areas.

    Grapes are harvested from late January through to the middle of March, although in particularly during dry seasons this can be earlier. … the current season is one which is experiencing major drought conditions.

    Our region produces a range of varietals, including of course the Shiraz and Cabernet Sauvignon we present, as well as the Chardonnay. The reds from the region generally have medium to deep colour with heaps of fruit flavour. The chardonnays are the most important premium varietal of the region and also have rich and generous fruit flavours.

    The Larral brand offers great quality wines at a superb value and are a good representation of one of the most important grape growing areas of Australia.

    This region is one of the major grape growing regions in the whole of Australia, as its long periods of sunshine giving hot and dry days in summer and more milder days in winter. Its natural water supply are perfect inputs for the production of beautiful grapes with fine ripe fruity flavours as evidenced in these wines we present to you.

    In fact the Murray River is the most important water source, as the climate simply does not offer sufficient rainfall to sustain the production of grapes by itself. Over use of this water system for agriculture, however has placed an enormous strain on the river. It now has a high salt content and it is estimated that as low as only 20% of the water reaches the ocean in South Australia.

    The climatic conditions help in the deterrence of disease, which can be a problem in other cooler regions with greater daily temperature changes and higher rainfalls. This means that year on year there is a good chance of presenting more consistent quality and quantity of wine than in some other areas.

    Grapes are harvested from late January through to the middle of March, although in particularly during dry seasons this can be earlier. … the current season is one which is experiencing major drought conditions.

    Our region produces a range of varietals, including of course the Shiraz and Cabernet Sauvignon we present, as well as the Chardonnay. The reds from the region generally have medium to deep colour with heaps of fruit flavour. The chardonnays are the most important premium varietal of the region and also have rich and generous fruit flavours.

    The Larral brand offers great quality wines at a superb value and are a good representation of one of the most important grape growing areas of Australia.

    CABERNET SAUVIGNON IGT VENEZIE WINE

    ITALY

    Cabernet Sauvignon Igt delle Venezie is a powerful wine, full bodied and persistent on the palate.

    CHARACTERISTICS

    The grapes are generally harvested at the middle of October, pressed with elimination of stems (to avoid excessive astringency in the wine) and vinified in red: must an skins are left in contact for 10/15 days to allow the fermentation and the extraction of polyphenolic compounds which contribute to a wine’s colour, tannins and aromas. Pumpovers are carried out daily for a better extraction. Once fermentation is finished, the wine is separated from the pomace, aged in steel for 3-4 months and cold stabilized. Then it is filtered and bottled, to be put on the market about a month after the bottling.

    APPEARANCE

    Limpid. Strong ruby red with shades of purple red.

    AROMA

    MERLOT IGT VENEZIE WINE

    ITALY

    Delle Venezie is an incredibly popular and recognizable IGT (Indicazione Geografica Tipica) due to its large production and exportation of refreshing, crisp white wines produced from the Pinot Grigio grape.

    Situated in northeastern Italy, the “Venezie” is representative of the “Tre Venezie” (or Three Venices), a reference to the three modern regions of Veneto, Friuli-Venezia-Giulia, and Trentino-Aldo-Adige that once were part of the Venetian Empire.

    Pinot Grigio wines reign supreme here, however additional red and white wines are produced from Garganega, Malyasia, Riesling, Sauvignon Blanc and Verduzzo grapes.

    PINOT GRIGIO IGT VENEZIE WINE

    ITALY

    Pinot Grigio Igt delle Venezie is a dry wine with pleasant fruits scents.

They are hand picked in cases and vinified in white (must and skins are immediately separated) after a cold maceration that lasts 36 hours. This procedure, longer than the traditional one, grants a more intense color to the wine. Fermentation goes on for 8-10 days, while stabilization is carried out in 30 days. The wine is then filtered and bottled.

    ACINO D'ORO WINE

    ITALY

    Chianti is one of the major symbols of Italy’s great wine-making tradition. The Acino d’Oro brand represents an expression of this culture.

    After harvesting, the grapes are dirty-pressing. The maceration on the skins lasts about 10 days while the alcoholic fermentation, conducted at controlled temperature, protrudes in steel tanks for about 20-25 days. By means of replenishment, which consists in bathing the straw hat that due to CO2 climbs to the top of the tub, it is guaranteed a greater extraction of the compounds present in the skins, an aeration of the must that favors the multiplication of yeasts and a decrease in temperature of fermented must. This is followed by stabilization, filtration and bottling. Before being put on the market, it is subjected to a period of aging in the bottle of about 2 months, during which the balance between the different fractions and the different components is restored.

    AMARONE DELLA VALPOLICELLA DOCG WINE

    ITALY

    Amarone is a full bodied, balanced and pleasant wine. The selected harvest, the drying on trellises and ageing in small oak casks make it ‘Il vino degli Dei’ (The Wine of Gods).

    The grapes are manually harvested in cases and taken directly in the drying room where, at a controlled temperature and ventilation they are left withering from the end of october until the first days of march, so that the grapes can eliminate most of their water of constitution. Fermentation occurs at a temperature of 18° C with daily pump-overs so to obtain a very alcoholic and structured wine, which is also rich in extract. It is then left ageing in small oak casks for a period of two years.

    APPEARANCE

    Limpid. Intense ruby red with garnet tinges

    AROMA

    Clear, characteristic of raisins with scents of sour cherry, marasca cherry and marmelade

  • 19 CRIMES

    SERIES WINE

    AUSTRALIA

    The men on the labels are not those of fiction. They were flesh and blood. Criminals and scholars. In history, they share a bond receiving “punishment by transportation.” It could have shattered their spirits. It didn’t. Today, we toast those men and the principles they lived by.

    Nineteen crimes turned criminals into colonists. Upon conviction British rogues guilty of a least one of the 19 crimes were sentenced to live in Australia, rather than death. This punishment by “transportation” began in 1783 and many of the lawless died at sea. For the rough-hewn prisoners who made it to shore, a new world awaited.

    As pioneers in a frontier penal colony, they forged a new country and new lives, brick by brick.

    This wine celebrates the rules they broke and the culture they built.
