This Summer Sample Pack includes:
2 Bottles Market Collection Cabernet Merlot
A classic interpretation of cool-climate blending. The Market Collection Cabernet Merlot is a delicious medium-bodied dry red with flavours of cherries, strawberries, black currant and hints of black peppers and spice. Barrel aged to add to the complexity and smooth the tannins, providing a medium long finish. Makes a great choice for large dinners and a wonderful gift for a discerning wine lover.
When considering food pairing, dishes like smokey Texas-style oven brisket or herb and lemon pork chops or mushroom Marsala with barley, will compliment the wines soft tannins and bolster fruit characteristics. 80% Cabernet Franc 20% Merlot, 4 months in used French Oak, 13% alc./vol., 9.3g/L of sugar, 750ml bottle.
2 Bottles Market Collection Lucia's Rose
The 2019 Lucia’s Rosé is a great example of premium cool climate rosé. It pours a beautiful salmon pink colour and displays vibrant aromas of white peach, sweet watermelon, white pepper, lilac and strawberry jam. The palate is well balanced as there is just enough sweetness to balance the acidity without feeling like a sweet wine. Flavours similar to the nose reveal themselves with more of an impression of honey and blood orange leading to a clean finish. This very refreshing and easy drinking wine is the perfect choice for on the patio or by the pool on a hot day, but also complex enough to pair well with food.
This rosé pair ideally with warm weather and sitting out on the patio but also pairs well with a variety of foods. Due to a slightly sweeter palate profile, look to foods with a touch of sweetness or those higher in spice. Spicy curry dishes like Tandoori chicken or lamb curry with tomatoes, garlic and garam masala will showcase the subtleties of this wine. Simple foods like light salads, seafood dishes or beef tacos would also make for a perfect match. Sauvignon Blanc 74%, Pinot Noir 15%, Gewurztraminer 11%. 12.0% alc./vol., 12.9 g/L of sugar, 750ml bottle.
2 Bottles Market Collection Chardonnay
An honest and authentic representation of Chardonnay, ours offers aromatics rooted in citrus juice (lemon and grapefruit), with undertones of green apple, gooseberry and honeydew melon. The palate proceeds to showcase notes of tree-fruit, specifically Gala apple, Bosc pear, and peach with subtleties of white flower blossom and mint. An interesting feature of this wine is its ability to showcase minerality, in the form of wet-stone/ flint. This allows for a highlight of natural acid, whilst still focusing on primary fruit and minimal residual sugar.
Consider pairing with foods that are salty, acidic, or fatty/ oily. Heirloom tomato, avocado and Burrata salad on grilled garlic toast, or homemade poutine will pair effortlessly. Consider classically prepared mussels and clams, or sockeye salmon drizzled with lemon. Other options include creamed soup, pate, grilled duck or salads with feta and goats cheese. Or simply choose this wine as a pleasant, everyday sipper! 100% Chardonnay, 12.5% alc./vol., 2.5 g/L of sugar, 750ml bottle
