Stone’s Throw Apostrophe Larry Cherubino 2015 750ml
The Apostrophe Stones Throw from Larry Cherubino is a delightful blend of Riesling, Gewurztraminer, Chardomnnay and a touch of Sauvignon Blanc. Riesling's cool minerality meshes with Gewürztraminer's exotic spice and rose water, in this delicious, refreshing blend.

Joseph Drouhin Beaujolais Villages 2018 750ml
Beaujolais-Villages makes a great option for any special occasion.
"A truly convivial wine. Owing to the careful blending of various terroirs, the result is a wine of great charm. It has a lovely raspberry colour and a brilliant hue. The nose is both refined and intense, with notes of violet, peony and red fruit syrup. As you drink it, it feels fresh and silky. Both freshness and fruit remain for quite a long time on the palate".
