IMPORTED & FORTIFIED WINE

Imported & Fortified Wine

Our Fortified Wine Selection

If you prefer something stronger than your average bottle of wine, our fortified wine selection is a great place to start. Particularly from the Victorian North East area around Rutherglen and Wahgunyah come the world’s best fortifieds some aged for over 50 years in small oak barrels. The local appellation for fortifieds is generally as follows;

  • Rutherglen - aged 5 to 8 years: fresh & lively
  • Classic - aged 10 to 14 years: perfectly balanced
  • Grand - aged 15 to 25 years: rich and complex
  • Rare - aged 30 years plus: intense & concentrated

In the world of political correctness though we have now changed Port to Fortified Shiraz or Australian Tawny to appease the Portugese, Sherry to Apera to appease the Spanish (from Jerez) and Tokay to Topaque or Muscadelle the variety most is made from to appease the Hungarians In Tokaj so where it will end we don’t know!

Our Imported Wine Selection

In line with our philosophy of offering options to cover all tastes, food matching and occasions, we have selected the very best value wines from traditional areas of Burgundy, Beaujolais, Spain and Italy as well as being one of only a very few outlets in Tasmania offering the exciting range of wines from KWV in South Africa.
Pinotage in particular is one of those fascinating varieties being a hybrid variety cloned from from what was originally believed to be Pinot Noir & Hermitage (the old name for Shiraz) hence the Pinot – age. It turned out later to actually be the French variety Cinsaut and not Shiraz but the wine still tastes fantastic – kind of like a Pinot Noir on steroids…. rich and flavoursome with plenty of mouth feel.
