We have only two offerings remaining from our
Passport 2015 Series
Yakima Valley, Washington
Traditionally used in Bordeaux blends to give colour and aromatics, Petit Verdot produces a bold, well-structured wine on its own. Expect intense colour and aromas of vanilla, cedar and smoke, followed by ripe cherry and blackberry flavours. This full-bodied wine has warm undertones of mocha, firm tannins, and a rich and robust finish.
Located in the southern centre of the state, just across the Cascade Mountains, Yakima Valley is home to some of Washington’s oldest vineyards. With a balance of warm days, cool nights, and controlled water, the Yakima Valley produces fully mature fruit. The valley receives less than 150mm of rain per year, so the vines rely on irrigation which growers can control, resulting in fruit with great concentration and flavour.
Experiment with barbequed lamb chops, pork spare ribs, duck, filet mignon and other rich meats. Hearty casseroles and mature hard cheeses such as Parmigiano, Grana Padano and Pecorino Romano also pair well.

Curicό Valley, Chile
Three classic Chilean varietals, Cabernet Sauvignon, Carménère and Merlot, make this bold, full-bodied blend, erupting with sweet fruit flavours from the Cabernet Sauvignon, spicy and earthy notes from the Carménère, rounded out with soft fruit and chocolate notes from the Merlot. Deep red, smooth and balanced, with a lingering finish.
The Curicό Valley is located in the Central Valley, south of Chile’s capital Santiago. The Mediterranean climate of hot days and cool humid nights is very beneficial for the development of flavour and aroma in the wines. The region’s soil is composed of limestone and volcanic rock from the Andes, deposited in the valley over time by the rivers. The combination of the climate and soil are ideal for growing all three varieties found in our Volcanic Red.
Serve with roasted or grilled meats such as lamb, beef or chicken. Indian curry, mushroom risotto, or Spanish paella are also great matches. Try cheeses like blue or hard cheeses such as Asiago with this bold Chilean blend.
