2021 The Whip Riesling
2019 The Backbencher Merlot$32.00Member: $21.60
Backbenchers do not have a seat in the ministry and individually have little power to influence policy. Merlot has always taken a backseat compared to more fashionable wines.
Although often misunderstood, when carefully crafted in the vineyard and winery, merlot can be a rich, full flavoured, yet smoot and soft wine.
This wine displays a rich spectrum of plum and spiced berry fruits. Wonderful with roast beef, smoked meats and for afternoon tea with fruit cake.
The Press Gallery Classic Dry Red$18.00Member: $14.40
A blend of shiraz, cabernet and merlot. This wine is full, softly flavoured and ready for drinking now.
2017 The Foreign Minister Sangiovese$28.00Member: $21.60
The minister of foreign affairs helps to form foreign policy as well as performing diplomatic duties. The embodiment of everything Italian, sangiovese would exert significant influence as a diplomat.
A variety from Tuscany, it is a seriously exciting wine – fleshy, great body, luscious texture and mouth-watering acidity that makes it tremendous with food. This sangiovese is charming and has lots of spicy red berries – juicy cherry, a little peppered strawberry, some herbs and violets. Enjoy with tomato bruschetta, pizza, or smoked meats.
