Gold Turtle Shiraz
Deep ruby colour tinging purple at the core, the nose carries hints of cinnamon, vanilla and baking spice which give way to cherry, ripe raspberry and forest fruits. On the palate, there is juicy vibrant red and black fruits enmeshed in a silky tannin structure which brings persistence of flavour. The lingering fruit eventually gives way to some savoury herb notes and spicy mocha oak character during the prolonged finish. The presence of the wine grows with aeration and the overall impression is of an elegant, contained and pleasing richness. Released ready to drink, but will continue to develop over the next 5 years. A natural choice to pair with meats – try matching with home-made spicy meatballs or lamb moussaka, or bring along to an evening barbeque with friends.
Gold Turtle Cabernet Sauvignon Merlot
Classic Cabernet aromas of blackcurrant, plum and black olive with a blackcurrant leaf lift. These flavours on the palate are enhanced by toasty oak; a juicy, plummy, rounded texture; clean acidity; and hints of dried thyme. Drink now or over the next three to five years with lamb cutlets dipped in romesco sauce or fried tofu with a spicy ginger-sesame sauce.
Gold Turtle Chardonnay
This wine is all about subtlety, complexity, nuances of flavour, balance and engagement. Delicate, ethereal notes of citrus blossom, honeysuckle and peach fuzz mingle with undertones of crème caramel and vanilla. The palate exhibits refined fruit flavours of honey dew, citrus and fig with a sprinkle of nutmeal and an enduring, fine, mineral acidity to finish. Enjoy now and over the next 4 years. Serve alongside coconut crusted fish tacos with mango, lime and cumin yoghurt.
Gold Turtle Riesling
Lovely lemon in colour with lime zest, citrus blossom and green pear aromas. The flavours are citrus, apples and pears with a soft stone/ mineral acidity that keeps the flavours lasting and fresh. And the hint of sweetness adds a gentle richness to balance all that freshness. Enjoy now and over the next year. Great with fresh prawns, fish tacos, nori rolls or, for something a bit savoury, seaweed salad.
Gold Turtle Rosé
A clean, fresh, modern style rosé which skilfully runs the gauntlet between lively and engaging fruit sweetness on the front palate and a drier, refreshing finish. Strawberry, raspberry, and pomegranate aromas meld with subtle floral and sweet spice notes. A present but soft acidity spreads these fresh fruit flavours across the palate and provides ample length, making this wine eminently drinkable. Enjoy now and over the warmer seasons. A wonderful match to all delicious Mediterranean flavours, try with paella, barbecued sardines or a simple bowl of olives.
Gold Turtle Pinot Gris
A pretty blush to this wine from skin contact of the Pinot Gris grapes. Delicate white floral aromas mingle with vibrant tropical fruit and lemongrass. On the palate stone fruit, lemon blossom and melon are supported by soft spice. An unctuous texture with a grip of citrus acidity delivers a fresh, clean finish and great length. Enjoy now and over the next year. Pair with duck liver parfait, charcuterie or Moroccan-spiced tagines.
Gold Turtle Semillon Sauvignon Blanc
A crystalline lemon yellow in colour with tantalising aromas of guava, gooseberry, pink grapefruit and sweet melons. An abundance of exotic tropical fruits with hints of sweet herbs and lemon curd provide plenty of flavour and texture on the palate. The acidity of the wine is mineral fine and citrus pithy, which adds texture, length and balance to this enticing wine. Enjoy now with a Sicilian calamari salad or any host of fresh, simple flavour combinations. For something more sophisticated, try a chicken roulade with prawn and dill stuffing, fennel and asparagus.
Gold Turtle Prosecco
Dusty floral notes of lime skin and subtle ginger spice are carried in the first effervescing notes that take flight from the glass. A gentle, creamy mousse conveys the bright fruit notes of tart apple, nashi pear and stone fruits to fill the palate and provide a wonderfully sensual, textural and flavoursome experience. Prosecco is the social butterfly. Easy going, popular at any party and enjoyed by all. Drink as a refreshing aperitif with canapes of fresh seafood, zesty Asian inspired salads, antipasto or tapas.
