Click on the bottle image or product name below for LCBO stores near you.

Wakefield - Jaraman Cabernet Sauvignon 2015+142398 $24.95

At release, the wine has a deep crimson red colour to the centre with a youthful purple hue to the edges. There are lifted aromas of dark cherry fruit along with subtle choc-mint and a hint of eucalypt. On the palate, this is a rich, full-bodied wine with intense flavours of cassis and blackberry fruit along with attractive oak characters of cigar box and tobacco leaf. Overall, the wine is well balanced with complex, well-integrated, elegant tannins providing structure and an intense, persistent length to the finish.

93 Pts & Platinium – Rich Cook, Sommelier Challenge IWSC, September 26, 2017

“I reviewed this wine in February of this year, and I'd say some bottle rest has improved the wine from the 91 point score I assigned it then. The mint and menthol have integrated nicely, allowing the rich fruit a little more of the stage. Time… never underestimate its power. A Platinum Award Winner at the 2017 Sommelier Challenge International Wine & Spirits Competition.”

Wakefield - St. Andrews Chardonnay 2016 +237933 $34.95 Flagship Store Exclusive

At release, the wine is a youthful pale straw colour with vibrant green hue to the edges. The wine has ripe stone fruit aromas along with hints of tropical fruit and subtle citrus zest. Enticing sweet spice and savoury cashew nut from the French oak add complexity to the bouquet. This is a medium-bodied yet sumptuous wine with an enjoyable creaminess to the mid-palate. Flavours of juicy white fleshed stone fruit are evident along with cleansing citrus at the finish which has wonderful persistence and length from the use of quality French oak.

92 Pts – Steven Creber, August 1, 2018

“Fermented in French oak, and left on lees with batonnage for a further 8 months. 80% new and 20% 1yo wood employed for maturation. The (high quality) toasty, nutty oak dominates, but the ripe peach and melon fruit has its say, and the result is a rich and flavoursome style of some character...”

Mazzei - Fonterutoli Nº10 IGT Toscana 2015 +574095 $21.95

In a tasting of our wines, the sample N°10 struck us for its contemporary character. A blend of mostly Merlot grapes, this wine is the result of decades of research to identify and improve the combination between "terroir" and grape variety. Delicious with Damson plum and a slight vanilla flavour. Medium-full body, fresh fruit and a satisfying finish.
