Refined, elegant and tightly structured, the wines of the elusive Frederick Stevenson focus on fruit sourced from two vineyard sites the certified biodynamic Vine Vale property in the Barossa Valley, and a rugged hilltop to the north of the Eden Valley. With a nod to both traditional Australian wines and an exploration of less familiar varieties and styles, they produce small batches with minimal intervention, it starts in the vineyard and ends when the bottle is empty. The Dry Red is made up of 60% Cinsault & 30% of a lighter parcel of Shiraz, with touches of Grenache & Mourvedre to produce a smashable, early release red. Each label proudly sport the works of young, emerging artists. Artwork: Eeyore Piata by Katie Shriner.

This is real raw cacao, handmade in Melbourne from the finest fairly-traded Peruvian organic raw cacao couverture and sweetened with maple syrup; traditionally stone-top tempered to give you the lovely glossy finish, the clearly defined snap when you break off a piece and the slow velvety melt-in-the-mouth of really good chocolate; Liefje chocolate is delicious, luxurious and virtuous. No dairy, no gluten, no cane sugar, vegan friendly.
