50cl of Sam's scrumptious sweet wine from the Strathbogie Ranges

    • Sam’s little sweetie is made from grapes grown in the (rather exclusive) Strathbogie Ranges of Central Victoria - and crikey, it's a stonker!
    • Beautifully honeyed summer fruits mix with sweet, sumptuous spices to make a seriously refined dessert wine. This is the kind of nectar that the Gods of Mount Olympus could only dream of.
    • We recommend super chilling it, cracking it open and pouring a large serving for one!

Ageing advice
Drink now to 2027. A delicious wine to drink now with its apricot and marmalade flavours, but it will likely age for a decade or more and become increasingly golden, complex and honeyed.

Serving advice
Serve chilled at 8°C

Local food match
Great with any fruit-based dessert - Tarte Tatin, Christmas pudding, or a gloriously sticky dessert.
