Passport Selection Summer Sale Continues – California

Cabernet Sauvignon Merlot: This popular blend combines the plump, fruity, earlier ageing Merlot grape with the robust Cabernet Sauvignon grape for a powerful match. Sweetness: Dry | Body: Medium-Full | Oak Intensity: Medium

Merlot: The plump, lush fruitness of this respected grape translates into a wine which perfectly balances berry and spice flavours with a smooth, supple texture. Mouth-filling and delicious; a standout with grilled meats. Sweetness: Dry | Body: Medium | Oak Intensity: Medium

White Zinfandel: Complete with Winexpert's innovative F-pack, this blush favourite displays the trademark pink hues and a soft, refreshing taste that make it particularly enjoyable as a chilled delight on a summer afternoon. Must be tried to be believed. Sweetness: Off-Dry | Body: Medium | Oak Intensity: None

White Merlot: Take Merlot. Make it a blush. Voila - a Merlot like you've never experienced! Fresh strawberries abound in the aromas and flavours of this medium-pink rose style wine, capped by a crisp finish that's slightly drier than a typical blush. Bright fruit and generous acidity make it a brilliant food pairing wine. Try it with salads, appetizers, fruits - even BBQs and spicy cuisine. Sweetness: Off-Dry | Body: Light-Medium | Oak Intensity: None

Sauvignon Blanc: Crisp and flavourful, this popular grape varietal has distinctive and immediately recognizable aroma and flavour characteristics. The famous grassy, herbaceous bouquet and flinty aftertaste are here, with the generous acidity that is typical of the grape. Steely, grassy, and defiantly dry, nothing can complement a meal better than Sauvignon Blanc, a unique wine that offers a definitive counterpoint to the ubiquitous Chardonnay. Sweetness: Dry | Body: Medium | Oak Intensity: None

Gewurztraminer: This immensely charming, exotic wine is true to its German translation: spicy. Deeply coloured and opulently aromatic, with an unmistakably flowery perfume and flavours of lychees and roses. Crisp, lush, and refreshing - a wonderful match with spicy foods, strong cheeses and fresh fruits. Sweetness: Off-Dry | Body: Medium | Oak Intensity: None
