Kammméhamehaa Pet Nat Rosé
Pinot Noir, Auxerrois, Pinot Gris
Alsace, France

This rosé Pét Nat is full of personality, terroir and a whole lot of fun. As well as being heavily influenced by the granite soil of Dambach, this wine gathers together typical Alsatian grape varieties: Pinot Noir, Auxerrois and Pinot Gris. Chill to enhance the bubbles and freshness - it’s as drinkable as a grapefruit lemonade, with an extra dash of citrus!

Andrea Occhipinti
Alkes Rosato
Lazio, Italy

While Aleatico and Grechetto Rosso are frequently the varieties found in Andrea’s wines, we’ve chosen one featuring 100% Ciliegiolo - a variety related to the more widely known Sangiovese. The name Ciliegiolo comes from the Italian for cherry, ciliegia, and certainly has some fruity notes along with Mediterranean herbs. Rather a light red than a rosé, we enjoy drinking it well chilled as a tasty aperitivo.

Sauvignon vom Opok
Sauvignon Blanc
Styria, Austria

This youthful Sauvignon Blanc is hand-harvested, destemmed and pressed immediately. After this simple-sounding process, it is aged in oak barrels of varying sizes. But this wine is anything but simple! Our first impression is lemon peel, great acidity and a hint of salt. Decanting and allowing some time and air will reward you with the more typical, juicy flavours of Sauvignon. Chilling this one suppresses its complexity, so make sure you don’t drink it too cold.
