Grab a glass and stay a while.

Shiraz, also known as Syrah is a popular red wine. Though the spiritual homeland of this red grape is France, Syrah has been planted throughout the world to great success. It expresses itself differently depending on the climate, soil and regional style.

Syrah is typically bold and full-bodied, with aromatic notes of smoke, black fruit and pepper spice. Stylistically, it can be round and fruity, or dense and tannic. And in warmer New World regions like Australia, Syrah is most often be called Shiraz.

Winemakers who work in cooler-climate growing regions, both in the Old World and New World, tend to call their wines Syrah. The most famous examples come from the northern Rhône Valley of France, notably Hermitage and Côte-Rôtie. In the New World, in regions like Sonoma Coast, California; Yarra Valley, Australia; and parts of Chile, the wines are called Syrah because they emulate the leaner, acid-driven, savory styles of the Old World French classics.

Shiraz tends to come from warmer growing climates, namely the South Australian regions of Barossa, McLaren Vale and Adelaide Hills. Stylistically, these wines are lush, fruit-forward examples that embody the warmer, sunnier climate. Shiraz is so important to Australian viticulture that it is the most planted grape variety in the majority of Australian vineyards and has become virtually synonymous with the country's wine regions, and in particular the Barossa Valley.

1 x Ate Sparkling Brut NV - South East Australia, Australia

Winemaker "Bright and lusciously lemony on the nose and awash with white peach on the palate, it's plucky, punchy, and packed with personality. Seriously skie-worth length of flavour. Plus the price!"

Até Winery produces meticulously crafted wines from some of the premium wine growing areas of Victoria and South Australia. These wines embody the mischievous and playful nature of the Greek goddess Até. With a focus on fruit-forward profiles and generous flavours, each wine displays the hallmarks of its region and is a testament to the artistry and passion of the winemaker.

Their range includes the Até Sparkling, Até Pinot Grigio, Até Chardonnay, and Até Shiraz, each offering unique and delightful flavours that fully express the region from which they are from. There are the bright lemony notes of the Sparkling, a shining example of the winery's dedication to quality and flavour, the zesty freshness of the Pinot Grigio, and the expressive character of the Chardonnay made from South Eastern Australian grapes. The Shiraz is a deep ruby color and purple hue, with aromas and flavors of red and dark plum, boysenberry, smoky oak spices, and hints of black pepper.

All these wines exemplify the winery's commitment to quality and flavour.

Sparkling wine is arguably the most technical wine in the world. This is because it undergoes not just one fermentation (to make the alcohol) but a second fermentation to make bubbles! There are many different types of sparkling wine; including; Champagne, Prosecco, Cava, Crémant and Sekt. Only sparkling wines made in the region of Champagne in France can be called Champagne.

Wine Spectator "Shows ripe peach, melon and yellow apple flavors accented by mango and orange blossom notes on a smooth, juicy frame, while pretty spice notes of cardamom and honeysuckle linger."

Jane Faulkner, Halliday Wine Companion "When it comes to riesling, Pikes has it down pat with its several styles and tiers. This is a ripper. Bright and so succulent with lime juice and a squirt of Meyer lemon, in a lighter style. There's an appealing softness throughout, matched to refreshing light acidity. Try stopping at one glass." (2020 vintage)

James Suckling "Super fragrant with some spicy aromas, as well as crushed stones and fine lime. The palate has a supple, fleshy and softly presented core of apple and lime. Easy and charming." (2020 vintage)

Robert Parker, Wine Advocate "...it's a fresh, mouthwatering example of Australian Riesling, offering intense citrus aromas, hints of honey and peach on the medium-bodied palate and a long, fine finish." (2019 vintage)

Wine Enthusias "This cuvée is a zingy, regionally expressive drop. Bright notes of apple, lemon and lime are underscored by honey and spice. Rapier-like acidity dominates the palate, but there's plenty of fruit here, too. Balance it out with a Thai curry or an equally spicy, creamy dish." (2019 vintage)

Wine Spectator "Candied pear, lemon drop and succulent ripe peach flavors are intense, harmonious and wonderfully juicy, with lemon blossom and lime zest lingering on the long, expressive finish. " (2019 vintage)

Vinous "Pale yellow. Fresh citrus fruit and floral qualities on the incisive nose, along with a chalky mineral overtone. Chewy and focused on the palate, offering racy lemon-lime and bitter quinine flavors and a spicy touch of ginger. Finishes silky and long, with the floral note sneaking back in." (2019 vintage)

Pikes is a prestigious winery in South Australia's Clare Valley, established in 1984 by Neil and Andrew Pike, whose viticultural roots go back to the late 1800s. Situated in the picturesque Clare Valley, the Estate is comprised of approximately 100 hectares of rolling slopes in Polish Hill River, an eastern sub-region of the Clare Valley.
Known for its cool climate and diverse grape varieties, Pikes showcases premium wines with distinct characters and flavors due to the unique terroir and altitude.

After an almost 20-year career with Penfolds Wines and Southcorp Wine Group, Andrew joined Pikes on a full-time basis in 1998 to oversee viticultural operations and manage the growing family business.

Pikes is particularly renowned for its high-quality Riesling and other cool-climate wines, praised for vibrant acidity, citrus flavors, and exceptional aging potential. Whilst they are best known for world-class Riesling, they have been growing Shiraz and Cabernet for 35 years and have 20 different grape varieties planted on their estate, producing a wide range of wine styles to suit all tastes.

Pikes pride themselves on producing quality handcrafted wines, that reflect vintage, variety, and region. The Pike family has been producing quality wine, beer, and aerated waters in South Australia since 1886 it is a family tradition of which they should be very proud.

Their vineyards in Clare Valley grow various grape varieties, with a strong commitment to sustainable viticulture and environmental responsibility.

Their portfolio includes Riesling, Shiraz, Cabernet Sauvignon, Merlot, Chardonnay, and unique blends, all crafted with a dedication to quality and craftsmanship. Over the years, Pikes has garnered numerous awards, establishing itself as a top producer in the Clare Valley, and gaining recognition both nationally and internationally for their excellent and consistent wines.

Riesling is a light-skinned, aromatic grape of German origin which is – if the majority of top wine critics are to be believed – the world's finest white wine grape variety. The Riesling vine holds a very different place in the wine world to such great grapes as Cabernet Sauvignon, Merlot or Chardonnay. While these immensely popular varieties have conquered every corner of the winegrowing world, Riesling is conspicuously absent from the core wine regions of France, Spain and Italy. Riesling's home is the regions that trace the middle Rhine and the lower Mosel, two of Europe's great wine rivers.

Bob Campbell "Fresh, punchy sauvignon blanc with gooseberry, green capsicum, cut grass, passionfruit and nettle flavours. Smooth-textured wine with good weight and a lingering finish."

Wine Enthusiast "This is an outgoing and crowd-pleasing Sauvignon with a firecracker of lime, guava, passionfruit, tomato leaf and bell pepper aromas. A big dollop of crunchy acidity is counterbalanced by subtle textural weight and a juicy stone fruit refreshment flows through to the finish." (2021 vintage)

Tim Atkin MW, International Wine Challenge "Classic fragrant aromas of gooseberries and nettles...well rounded with a crisp finish." (2020 vintage)

Decanter World Wine Awards "A tropical, richer style offering mango, passionfruit and peaches; there's some nice weight and roundness here. Medium finish." (2019 Vintage)

Wine Spectator "Shows off fragrant lemongrass flavors, mingling with citrus and mango details. Offers a refreshing finish and grace notes of fresh ginger." (2019 vintage)

Wine Enthusiast "This opens with a classic Marlborough SB nose of lifted citrus, stone fruit and bell pepper with herbal undertones. There's zippy acidity and a slippery texture on the mouthfeel. It finishes with lovely fresh citrus and herbal characters. " (2019 vintage)

Bob Campbell "Light, tangy sauvignon blanc with green-grassy, capsicum and gooseberry flavours supported by green apple-like acidity." (2018 vintage)

Wine Enthusiast "This needs time in glass to aerate and to show its passionfruit, pineapple, grapefruit and green herbed characters. Even then, the acidity is a little searing, just barely kept in check by some fruit weight." (2017 vintage)

Wine Spectator "The tangy notes of lemon-lime are appealing, accented by lemongrass and ruby grapefruit details. Finishes with a hint of juicy acidity." (2014 vintage)

The Winemaker "Quintessentially Marlborough, the wine is strikingly vibrant with aromatics of lime zest, kiwifruit, orange blossom and a subtle note of rockmelon. The palate is soft and rich initially, then carried by juicy acidity to a long refreshing finish. My philosophy is simple source outstanding fruit from exceptional vineyard sites."

Crowded House is a multi-award winning, Marlborough based winery. The name - Crowded House - could be a nod to the famous Kiwi rock band, but actually stems from the crowded, yet unique Marlborough region and the winemaker's mission to "stand out from this crowded world of wine." Crowded House wines are fresh, approachable and expressive with clean, crisp aromatics.

Marlborough is by far New Zealand's most important wine region. Situated at the north-eastern tip of the South Island, this dry, sunny region produces around three-quarters of all New Zealand wine. It is particularly famous for its pungent, zesty Sauvignon Blanc - widely considered by critics to be the best Sauvignon currently produced anywhere on the planet. Commercial-scale viticulture began in Marlborough the 1970s – it conquered the world within 25 years!

Sauvignon Blanc is currently the bestselling white wine in Singapore. It pairs well with white meats including Chicken, Pork and Turkey. It also complements fish.

Sauvignon Blanc is a white-wine grape from western France, now successfully grown in emerging and established wine regions all over the world. While the grape may be more readily associated with the Loire Valley (for its pivotal role in Sancerre and Pouilly-Fumé), it is more likely to have originated from Bordeaux, where it is typically blended with Semillon.

In the late 20th Century, a new region began to gain a reputation as one of the great Sauvignon Blanc regions of the world: Marlborough, at the northern tip of New Zealand's South Island. The rapid development of the Marlborough Sauvignon Blanc is one of the most dramatic events in the world of wine.

Outside France and New Zealand, the variety has been relatively successful in New World regions such as California, Chile (particularly the Casablanca and San Antonio valleys) and South Africa. Even in Australia, the variety can thrive in the cooler coastal areas of the south. In Europe, the cool, sunny sub-alpine slopes of Alto Adige and Friuli in northern Italy produce high-quality Sauvignon Blanc, which is used in blends with native varieties like Friulano or on its own.

Wine Enthusiast "Pristine blackberry and blueberry flavors are rich and mouthfilling in this ripe yet freshly composed wine. It's straightforward and fruity but hints of bramble and earth lend nuance. The moderately long finish is framed by fine, delicate tannins." (2015 vintage)

Beacon Wine "This is an old-world style medium-bodied wine with good fruit balanced by more peppery spice. It has a lightly oaked influence that allows the fruit to shine through. The fine grained tannins are engaging and keep you coming back for another sip." (2015 vintage)

The Guide Hachette des Vins (referenced in the above) is France's best-selling, and one of France's oldest wine guides. Considered France's most authoritative wine guide and commonly referred to as the bible of the French wine industry. This wine has received consistent star ratings for multiple vintages from this prestigious authority.

Grenache noir (50%) Syrah (50%)

This wine comes from parcels selected from the finest terroirs of the southern Rhône Valley Region, extending from Montélimar to Nîmes. The Grenache and Syrah vines are planted on clay-limestone plains which are particularly well exposed and are managed to obtain a yield of around 40 hl/ha.

The grapes are entirely de-stemmed and placed in temperature-controlled vats to macerate for around 18 days during which time only pumping-over operations are carried out. 50% of the wine is aged in vat, and 50% in 450L barrels previously used for 1 or 2 vintages, for a period of 12 months, before being blended with the vat-aged wine.

Originally from Bordeaux, the Lavau family has been involved with winemaking for generations, and have had vineyards ranging from Bordeaux to Tunisia. In 1964 they were seduced by the richness and quality of the Provencal soil, and settled down to make wine in the Rhone Valley.

The cellars of Lavau are currently managed by Benoit and Frederic Lavau, who work in partnership with 350 different grape growers. Benoit is a frequent visitor to Singapore and Pop Up Wine events.
