Devil’s Lair Honeybomb Margaret River Chardonnay

Margaret River is home to Devil’s Lair, the producer of this rich and full bodied chardonnay. Sumptuous flavours of ripe peach and lemon meld with elegant oak influences and a nice hint of acid to balance the mouthfeel. As the days get longer and warmer, this is the perfect wine to pair with lemon and herb chicken from the BBQ, or a creamy pasta.

Archie Rose Gin 700ml

The Australian spirits craft scene continues to evolve. Archie Rose is the new kid on the block — the first new distillery in Sydney for 160 years. Archie Rose’s signature dry gin is crafted using 14 botanicals, each uniquely distilled and infused to produce this well balanced yet complex gin. Perfect with a dash of tonic and slice of lime on a hot day.

Sorriso Prosecco 750ml

Sorriso means “smile” in Italian, and this brand new release is just the bubbles to bring a smile to your face. On the refreshing, crisper end of the spectrum, Sorriso displays flavours of green apple, pear and citrus. This is a great wine to start any occasion, drink with an antipasto plate or use in a cocktail. Prosecco is the sparkling used in an Aperol Spritz, our tip to be the drink of summer.

Mountain Goat Summer Ale and 4 Pines Indian Summer Pale Ale

Hitting the shelves this summer will be some exciting new ales, including one from the team that won ‘Australian large brewery of the year’ at the Australian International Beer Awards — 4 Pines in Manly. Another one to watch out for is the limited edition from Mountain Goat, blending Kiwi and Aussie hops in a thirst quenching, flavoursome ale.

Aperol Aperitif 700ml

Strolling through the romantic streets of northern Italy it’s impossible to miss the tables lined with glasses full with a unique orange hue. Aperol, an orange-red liquor invented by the Barbieri brothers in Padova in 1919, began to really stir up the Aussie scene last year, and this trend is set to continue this summer. Aperol is a light and fresh aperitif that owes its flavours and aromas to sweet and bitter oranges, rhubarb and gentian root.
