Each year we offer craft winemakers the opportunity to create truly outstanding wines made from the best grapes grown in world-renowned winemaking regions. These distinctive wines are available for a limited time and are released under our Restricted Quantities (RQ) brand.

This year, we bring you A Festival of Festivals – wines inspired by local celebrations that take place some of the world’s most famous wine regions. 

The program highlights four festivals that take place in the regions where each of our RQ grapes are grown – La Batalla in the Rioja region of Spain, Carrusel in the Mendoza wine region of Argentina, Carnevale in the Veneto region of Italy, and Tjungu in Central Australia.

Tjungu

$ 200 CAD

Three of Australia’s most celebrated grapes are blended together to contribute their own unique characteristics to this full-bodied wine. Deep in colour, it exudes aromas of berry with a hint of toasty oak and cedar, complemented by flavours of black fruit.  The soft tannins pair well with full-flavoured meat dishes including BBQ lamb kebobs, full-flavoured stews and beef lasagna.
