2 - Two Rivers Pinot Gris, New Zealand
This is a luscious and off-dry Pinot Gris, a wonderful cocktail of soft sweet figs, poached pears and quince, and a hint of mulling spices and almond crumble. Crisp and powerful on the finish – an excellent match for fragrantly spiced dishes.
3 - Peter Lehmann Layers, Adelaide White, Australia

This wine is a sub-regional blend of several McLaren Vale vineyards. It was fermented in traditional open fermenters with heading board systems and using gentle cap management techniques. Oak maturation was 16 months in 25% new French and American hogsheads, the balance aged in 1 to 4 year old barrels.
5 - Fog Mountain, Merlot, U.S.A
On the nose are aromas of baked plums alongside more delicate violet notes. This is a medium bodied wine with well structured tannins and flavours of red fruits including raspberry, strawberry and cherry pie, rounded out by hints of vanilla and cinnamon on the long satisfying finish.
6 - Two Rivers Pinot Noir, New Zealand
A juicy and savoury style of Pinot Noir with lifted aromas of violets, blueberries and red liquorice. This wine has silky tannins, elegant structure and a slightly spicy backbone.
