Spanish and Australian wines from PLB

The pale and fruity Castillo de Betera NV (11.5% abv) is a blend of Merseguera and Macabeo grapes and is described as having a light palate and balanced acidity.

The Mersequera grape hails from the Valencia region of Spain and comes from a rustic variety of vine with moderate productivity. The Macabeo grape is also of Spanish origin and comes from medium-sized vines that produce high yields of fruit. The resulting wines are fresh and aromatic, and suitable to be consumed young.

On the red side, the Broken Earth First Pick Shiraz Cabernet (2006) is described as a fresh wine with good weight and a soft, lingering finish. The sweet-spiced and plum-flavoured wine comes from the 1,450ha Thachi Estate in South Australia's riverland region, Monash. The purple-hued wine has a spicy plum and blackcurrant aroma and an abv of 13%.
