Canadian wine delivered right to your door!
A winemaker always loves to create a wine that piques your interest and this unusual blend does just that, with a nod to the great CSMs of Australia. 2015 brought us wonderful, ripe fruit flavours and tannins, so the timing was perfect to create this blend for the first time at Bench 1775.
