JK.14 Carmenere DOC Piave 2016

Treviso, Italy
LambBBQ - Red Meats
  • Unique to the world - Nonno Mario!
  • JK's Carmenere is a passionate old school Italian with an intense unforgettable character, much like his kids Grandad - Mario.
  • Brilliant with red meats like JK's 'secret' lamb recipe or the Spiedo rotisserie.
Nonno Mario for us in Kiwis translates to Grandad Mario. A perfect tribute to John Kirwan's Father n' Law. After living in Treviso, Italy for a decade, JK soon realized Mario is very much as part of the village as much as the cobblestones in the Piazza or the vines on the hills. Much like Mario this grape Carmenere is unique to this region and comes with a fascinating story as well. Back in 1900's the Carmenere grape was originally a famous Bordeaux grape, blended to create the famous 1st Growths. After the devastating plague of the Phylloxera bug it was thought extinct in Europe but turned up in Treviso and the guise of Cabernet Franc. Probably a trick played by the Frenchies to tthe Italians when selling the vines!  Now an official DOC varietal of San Polo di Piave, Mario and the locals knew their local Cabernet Franc was a uniquely special, and so it was - it was the lost Bordeaux grape of Carmenere! As JK puts when talking about Mario or the wine - charmingly intense and utterly inforgettable.

Starborough Sauvignon Blanc 2016

  • A Golden Star!
  • According to Michael Cooper, and if the last vintages are anything to go on, every other wine judge will agree. Starborough's 2016 Sauvignon Blanc has endless amounts of character with massive punch potential to knock out your tastebuds.

Lawson's Dry Hills Chardonnay 2015

Lawson's Dry Hills Chardonnay 2015

Marlborough, New Zealand
  • One of Cuisines top rated Chardonnay's
  • A stunning Chardy where the fruit feature front and centre. But it doesn't stop there - the layers of mouth watering citrus acid and creamy texture make this a serious un-oaked Chardonnay.
  • From a seaward single vineyard in Marlborough this wine naturally lends itself to pair up to  cuisine of the swimming kind, like Sashimi, Grilled Pawns or a Tuna Pasta bake. But tastes just as good next to chicken either skewered or in a sushi roll.
