Meet the 4Fugitives of 2019…

Joaquin Murrieta

Chilean Cabernet Merlot Syrah

The rich, brooding intensity of this blended wine is reminiscent of Joaquin Murrieta, a daring guerrilla leader turned social bandit.

Revel in layer upon layer of surprise in this Chile Cabernet Merlot Syrah. Enticing hints of smoke, and luscious qualities are intricately woven into this wine’s darkly exotic character. Salut to life, to wine, and to the man behind the mask!

TASTING NOTES This full-bodied dry wine presents aromas of juicy blackberries, cassis, mocha, and spices. On the palate, it showcases polished tannins and a smooth finish.

PAIRINGS • Beef Empanadas • Rack of lamb with chimichurri sauce • Flank steak with balsamic glazed grilled vegetables

Release Date: December 2018

Ned Kelly

Australian Chardonnay Semillon

Much like Ned Kelly, Australia’s “Robin Hood” outlaw, this Chardonnay Semillon is full of intrigue and generous with its unique flavours.

This wine’s balanced, easy-going relationship of subtlety and freshness harmonize with the complexities of its unwitting armour-wielding fugitive. Cheers to an unsung hero!

TASTING NOTES This dry wine features refreshing aromas of white flowers, golden delicious apples, lemon custard, and vanilla. Enjoy freshness on the palate, with a touch of oaky flavours.

PAIRINGS • Salmon burgers • White fish fritters • Cheese gougères

Release date: January 2019


Enrico Alfano

Italian Nebbiolo

Like framed fugitive Enrico Alfano, this Nebbiolo is uncompromisingly bold in character, yet rather smooth and full of surprise.

Saluti to a man of lasting endurance and mystique!

TASTING NOTES Featuring aromas of black cherries, dark berries, dried pink and purple flowers, and spices – this dry wine will be the perfect complement to your meaty dishes! It offers a broad texture, as well as polished tannins on the palate.

PAIRINGS • Braised beef cheeks with garlic infused mash potatoes • Lasagna Bolognese • Rigatoni alla Norma

Release date: February 2019


José Ulloa Navarro

Spanish Monastrell

An enthralling combination of lush, spicy character creates an exceptional Spanish duo featuring this Monastrell and famed matador, singer, smuggler, and bandit, José Ulloa Navarro.

Like Navarro’s harrowing and wildly juicy tales, this wine will entrance and entice the palate with a voluptuous headiness and earthy appeal that will have your glasses raised! Saludos to a man who lived with such passion.

TASTING NOTES This dry wine unveils aromas of black and red berries, black pepper, and spices from oak. On the palate, it presents woody flavours and polished tannins for a bold finish.

PAIRINGS • Braised beef short ribs with a creamy polenta • Veal with mushroom sauce • Veggie burger with aioli and caramelized onions

Release date: March 2019
