White Blend – Australia
Unique blend of Verdeho, Viogner and Semillon
Sweet and rich on the front palette with a crisp, dry finish-
The yin to your yang, this wine has more personality than
“Pee Wee Herman’s Play House.”

Sauvignon Blanc – New Zealand
Refined, sophisticated and complex. This wine has the
“wow” factor and aromas of tropical fruits, ripe citrus,
lemongrass and guava with a refreshing, smooth palette.

Shiraz – McLaren vale-Australia
An estate wine of amazing pedigree, broad up front fruit
Boasting vibrant, lifted aromas and flavors of black currant,
Plums and cinnamon. Please enjoy the view-our bay is
Beautiful and your island await you.

Grenache – Sardinia
A pure Grenache from its land of origin – Cannonau is thought
To be the “mother” grape that evolved into Grenache. A full-
bodied wine with dark berry flavors surrounded by fresh, herbal
and floral notes
