Vibrant on the nose, this wine displays aromas of dark cherry, blackberry and plum with hints of black pepper and chocolate. On the palate, dark fruits flavours are backed by notes of spice and chocolaty oak. Fine, strong tannins lead to a well-balanced and structured finish.
Item Code: ITM2082
Strong aromas of dark fruits with hints of mint, bramble and dark chocolate follow onto a medium-bodied palate with flavours of ripe blackcurrant and blackberry with well-integrated creamy oak. Soft, chalky tannins create a good length and depth on the finish.
Item Code: ITM2099
Light strawberry blonde in colour with aromas of ripe red summer berries and a touch of spice, which follows onto a dry style palate. Full-bodied with good acidity and freshness resulting in a well-balanced wine to enjoy now.
Item Code: ITM1728
A generous Hawke’s Bay Chardonnay with aromas of citrus, vanilla and crème brûlée. The palate boasts rich white peaches and bright acidity. Fantastic ageing potential.
Item Code: ITM2401
Sourced from various old vines, this is an earthy, mouth-filling wine
that represents the essence of the Barossa Valley. Aromas of lifted
musk, plum, violet and spice continue onto palate where rich red fruits,
blackcurrant and liquorice add complexity. Medium to full bodied, this
wine is fresh and vibrant with fine grained tannins and a persistent
length that is indicative of its high quality.
