The Prosecco Rosé has the freshness and vibrancy that Prosecco is known for, with a subtle hint of berry. (RRP$15.99 each)


Taylors Jaraman Shiraz 2014 was recently named the world’s most-awarded wine and most-awarded shiraz of 2017 in the World Ranking of Wines & Spirits (WRW&S) ‘Top 100 Wines of the Year’. This impressive wine has aromas of red berry and cherry fruit along with subtle black olive and spice, and rich, full-bodied flavours of ripe red berry fruit, violet, oak, roasted coffee beans and dark chocolate. (RRP$29.99)


Made from pinot noir and chardonnay grapes grown in Bannockburn, Central Otago, this beautifully boxed gold medal-winning method traditionelle is aged for a minimum of 36 months for complexity and character. What that means is inviting aromas of citrus, stone fruits, grapefruit, white peach and red apple, and flavours of brioche enhanced by nut and yeast tones, with fine bubble and a long crisp finish. (RRP$48)


​Mumm Cordon Rouge is one of the world’s favourite champagnes, much-loved for its fresh and intense citrus and peach aromas with hints of vanilla and caramel, and Mumm’s unique biscuity notes. This limited edition Mumm Cordon Rouge Porsche Design Giftbox with mirror-effect finish was created by Ferdinand Alexander Porsche, the grandson of the founder of Porsche cars. (RRP$49.99)

$$$$$: MAJOR TOM

The TOM range of wines is Church Road’s tribute to their visionary winemaker Tom McDonald (1907-1987), regarded as the father of red wine making in New Zealand. If you’re in a mood for something special this Christmas, TOM Syrah 2014 is a multiple award-winning syrah that’s described by chief winemaker Chris Scott as “built on a core of dark, luxurious fruit [that] never becomes too heavy or loses the floral and spice perfume that sets it apart.” Yum! (RRP$249.99)
