Craggy Range is a New Zealand wine producer based in the Hawke's Bay region of teh North Island. Founded in 1999 by businessman Terry Peabody and winemaker Steve Smith MW, it has quickly gone on to be one of New Zealand's more prestigious wine companies, producing a wide range of premium wines from various grape varieties.

John Duval Wines is a producer making highly acclaimed wines in small quantities from the Barossa Valley. It was founded in 2003 by the former winemaker of Penfolds, John Duval. "This is another top-flight example of how good the 2012 vintage was for South Australian Shiraz. The oak here is so subtle as to not factor into the wine's scents of raspberry and cracked pepper. Hints of spice and vanilla mark the palate, gently accenting red berry fruit before ending in a flood of silky tannins. Drink now–2030." - 93/100, Wine Enthusiast

Hãhã is a Mãori word which means savoury and luscious. The wines are a toast to the full-flavoured goodness of Aotearoa, New Zealand: grown with love, created with confidence and selected with passion. This is a floral, light style of Pinot Noir with some sappiness.

Penfolds is Australia's most famous wine producer, best known for its flagship wine Grange, one of the most acclaimed wines in the world. The historic estate has pioneered the wine industy of Australia since its inception in the mid-19th Century. Penfolds has a long-standing reputation for consistent high quality across its broad portfolio, besides Grange (their 100pt wine that has won numerous accolades) there are several other wines that feature regularly in auctions, including this Bin 407 Cabernet Sauvignon. "This is almost confectionery in its fruit sweetness, layering raspberries over black currants in wave after wave. There's a hint of mint as well, ample weight and power on the palate and a long, dusty, tannic finish. Drink now–2030." - 91/100, Wine Enthusiast

Pewsey Vale Vineyard’s love affair with Riesling started in 1847, when the vineyard was the first planted in the Eden Valley. Pewsey Vale is always a benchmark, dry, Australian Riesling. It comes from a single vineyard sitting at 1500 ft in the Eden Valley. This elevation allows the fruit to slowly ripen giving complex flavors and fresh, zesty acidity.
