Cuvée Juveniles was created as a ‘Cote Du Rhone’ inspired bistro wine from the classic Barossa varieties of Grenache, Mataro (Mourvedre) and Shiraz from mostly old, unirrigated vineyards. These varieties are the cornerstone of the Barossa Valley and are intrinsic in the wines that are so easily appreciated around the world and often referred to as GSM blends by sommeliers and consumers alike.
A perennial favorite, Grenache from old vines shows its ability to exhibit lifted florals, red juicy fruit characters such as wild cherry, raspberry and pomegranate. The palate has delicious texture and long acidity balancing a freshness from savory Mataro and bolder Shiraz components.
This wine pairs best with moderate to heavy dishes. Cuts through fattier steaks such as a ribeye, any grilled or barbecued red meats, roasted chicken, mushrooms, or charcuterie. The wine also pairs well with meals including spices and herbs such as rosemary, sage, and red pepper.

Condes de Albarei was founded in 1988 by a small group of vine growers from the Salnés Valley, who united their efforts and vineyards to make and market excellent, high-quality Albariños. Condes de Albarei was the first Spanish white wine to earn a Gold Medal at the Challenge International du Vin in Bordeaux in 1991, and ever since, their wines have earned the highest recognition in both national and international competitions. Today, Condes de Albarei is a benchmark in D.O. Rías Baixas and Condes de Albarei Albariño is the flagship brand of the winery.
This wine has a rich, vibrant mouth feel. Varietal aromas of tropical fruit (pineapple) and citrus aromas (oranges), with a hint of white flowers (orange blossom). Well-balanced, fresh and pleasant with lingering finish.
A friend to all things from the sea, Albariño pairs exceptionally well with white fish and meats as well as leafy green herbs. Try it with fish tacos. Meat Pairing: Lighter meats, fish, and seafood sing with Albariño. Try it with ceviche, seafood risotto, grilled (or fried) fish tacos, oysters, mussels, and clams.
