• Wines with a difference. On the Animal Farm, not all animals are equal. The same is true for wine. The complexities within wine-making go far and wide; some wines are so good because they have been extracted from excellent grapes, some have been handled deftly in the cellar and are finished with precision at the time of bottling.

    Have you ever tried a Sauvignon Blanc or a Sauvignon Blanc and Semillon blend that has been oaked? Using oak lends a delicate and fine mouth feel to the wine when it is done correctly. To educate your more complex palate why not try one of the following? The four wines listed below are to be enjoyed with elegant meals or to be passed on as a gift, these wines will make you stop and think:
