Region Marlborough, New Zealand Type White Still ABV 13.0% Variety 100% Sauvignon Blanc
There is no stopping the aroma of passion fruit from this gloriously chilled Sauvignon Blanc. Consistent with the popular house style, it’s a medium-bodied tropical cocktail, juicy and alive, all the more perfect for the unforgiving temperatures. More poised than the lower tier Vicar’s Choice, focus and concentration are what that stands on its way from joining the RM100++ elitist Marlborough Sauvignon. Guzzle it, don’t sip. — 3

Region Marlborough, New Zealand Type Red Still ABV 13.5% Variety 100% Pinot Noir
Keep your expectation in check and you shall enjoy a reasonable if standard-issue Marlborough Pinot by all means. From the onset this medium-light ruby wine never looked to punch above its weight. Dark cherries, red berries and supple tannins all did their parts in the soft play which ended unadventurously in a spicy theme. Forget about the fact that something comparable is available for less and you would find yourself warming up to it. — 2.5

Region Clare Valley, South Australia Type White Still ABV 12.5% Variety 100% Riesling
The Bin 7 Riesling opened with a gust of lovely pineapple, pear and apple. Juicy palate picked up where the nose left off with lime and lemon tinged by sprightly, Sauvignon-like zing. Bone-dry and tight, the austerity of steely mineral began to impose itself as I pit it half-heartedly against the spiciness of otak-otak. Its full retail price however is too steep a barrier for any frugal customer looking for an honest, delicious sipper.
