Jane first produced wines under this label in Australia in 2012, when she made three barrels of a Pinot from Mornington. This Pinot Noir is initially reserved but after some time in the glass the wine opens up with aromas of blackberries, plum and spice. The palate is full of sweet fruit, balanced by spices and savoury flavours.

The Gironde River gravel beds at Pauillac provide the ideal drainage and riverside micro-climate enjoyed by the dominant varietal, Cabernet Sauvignon. The Bages plateau is considered the finest environment for Cabernet grapes.

Tempranillo blanco is a white Spanish wine grape variety that is grown in the Rioja region. It is a relatively `new` grape variety as it is a natural mutation of the red Tempranillo variety that is grown throughout Spain. The wine has fruity aromas with green apple, citrus and floral characters.
Orange wine is a white wine made by leaving the juice on the skins for an extended period of time. In this case, the juice from the Albarino is left in contact with the skins for 15 days, this results in an amber colour wine with notes of marmalade and nectartine.
Its glistening, yellow hue and delicate floral perfume will be emphasised when decanted half an hour before serving. This wine is best served at a temperature of 10°C and will pair well with poultry or seafood.
Episode 29 represents the 5th ever Chenin Blanc released by The Liberator (and there you were thinking this was a blatant and cynical reference to a famous perfume). It also happens to be the single largest Liberator ‘Episode’ release to date.
This wine is part of the superb parcel of wines `liberated` by MW Richard Kelly. Richard has sourced this Syrah from the De Morgenzon vineyards in Stellenbosch and closely resembles the wines of Crozes-Hermitage & Saint-Joseph. The wine shows red-black fruit & a slight floral note on the palate.
From the higher quality area of Valdobbiadene, this is a classic Italian sparkling wine made from the Prosecco grape with the addition of 10% Pinot Bianco.

The nose is fresh and pronounced with excellent fruit concentration. On the palate, it is clean and well balanced, with a core of strawberry fruit combined with subtle vanilla flavours from American oak. The finish is juicy and long.
Lifted blue fruits, blood plum, ripe blackberries and Christmas pudding-like spice flow out of the glass with spicy pepper, and hints of bramble and dark chocolate. Generous mouth filling sweet blackberry, raspberry and plums cover the palate with lashings of sweet spice.
From selected vineyard sites across Chile`s Central Valley. The cooling influences of the Andes and the Humboldt current together with the diurnal temperature difference here allows for slow ripening so that the grapes develop maximum flavour.
A blend of Verdelho, Gouveio, Viosinho, Rabigato and Códega do Larinho varieties (the blend changes each year) grown on primarily northfacing, high-altitude vineyards planted on schistous and granitic soils.
Although Pinot Grigio is best known for the production of white wines, the grapes actually have a pink tinge to them when they are ripe. The wine gets its delicate pink colour from contact with the grape skins during the winemaking process.
An easy drinking and full bodied wine from Portugal, which has delicious soft fruit flavours of raspberries and redcurrants. The wine is made from selected Portuguese grapes with the addition of Shiraz and this is evident from the superb balance between smooth, ripe fruit and youthful freshness.
The Cabernet Sauvignon grapes come from the Colchagua Valley, Chile renowned for making excellent red wines. In Colchagua, the moderating breezes from the ocean slows ripening allowing the wines to achieve perfect ripeness. Cool nights help retain acidity giving freshness to the wines. All grapes were hand harvested. Deep, ruby red in colour.
A dry crisp, refreshing wine with a full fruit flavour and good body. Only premium quality grapes are used and this is shown by the combination of delicate aroma, delicious apple and grapefruit and a lively citrus finish.
