While new releases have slowed during the coronavirus crisis, there are still a few additions to shelves for autumn.
Treasury Wine Estates has released a limited edition 19 Crimes Pale Ale.
19 Crimes Senior Brand Manager, Laura Wenn, said: “Creating a Pale Ale felt like a natural, obvious next step for the brand as we know that our wine consumers equally enjoy discovering craft beer.
“Almost 50% of purchases by craft beer drinkers are for beers they have never previously tried and we also know that craft beer buyers are 10% more likely to purchase wine than the average liquor shopper.”
19 Crimes Pale Ale launched this month at Cellarbrations, The Bottle-O, IGA Liquor and Ritchies liquor outlets, along with select on-premise and independent retailers. It is available in Australia until stocks last.
Adelaide Hills winemaker Petaluma has released a new look for its everyday White Label range of wines.
The new White Label bottle now features a more streamlined oval-shaped label with regionality clearly visible and white screwcaps sealing the bottles – now distinct from the Yellow Label range under black screwcap.
The revamped White Label range has an RRP of $29. The Chardonnay, Sauvignon Blanc, Pinot Gris and Cabernet Sauvignon varietals will be landing in major and independent retail stores from March 2020, with the Shiraz available from May 2020 and the Rosé from August 2020.
In October 2020, Petaluma will also celebrate its new vintage release of Yellow Label.
The first Israeli whisky distiller, Milk & Honey, is releasing its Classic Single Malt Whisky into the Australian market.
The three-year-old Classic Single Malt Whisky was matured in the finest ex-bourbon and special red-wine STR casks, giving it a light and balanced character, with notes of vanilla, light oak, alongside a light black pepper spiciness.
The distillery has named Alba Whisky for distribution of its unique Israeli whisky and its two award-winning gins in Australia.
