Mr Riggs "Yacca Paddock" Tempranillo 2016Mr Riggs "Yacca Paddock" Tempranillo 2016

One of the most applauded tempranillos outside Spain, the fruit for this wine comes from the cool-climate Yacca Paddock in Kuitpo, the region’s premium tempranillo site. Wonderfully rich, yet elegant; abundant licks of savoury tannins, yet sweet red berry fruit; complex, yet easy drinking. An interesting perfect food wine. This tempranillo is a fantastic aperitif, but also goes well with spanish style cheeses, thanks to its creaminess and savoury finish. This tempranillo is an anywhere, anytime kind of wine.

Talijancich Tawny Port 30YOTalijancich Tawny Port 30YO

From one of our true treasures of the WA wine industry, James builds on a Shiraz base with Grenache and a touch of Verdelho (as a madeira style) to create this tawny that is then matured in old brandy casks. It displays richness and concentration but also the complexity and texture so crucial to this unique style. Rich, concentrated and nutty, finishing medium dry rather than sweet like a liqueur.
