The Orgy + Antipasti Platter
It’s evident that Vinomofo loves a bit of tongue-in-cheek, aye?
I’ve actually got a half-gone six pack of this at home – this grenache shiraz mourvedre a.k.a. GSM is fittingly named The Orgy as its draping flavors resonates with the practice of polyamory. Spicy, earthy, acidic with velvety tannins; this saucy little number goes well with stacks and stacks of cheese, dips, olives and cured meats.
Go on, let your mouth go liberal in hosting a swinging orgasmic party of flavours.

Bisou Bisou + NZ Oysters
A premium multi-vintage of four blends that brings a burst of lemon zest and apple with a hint of spice that oh so passionately caresses our eye-roll inducing oysters, Bisou Bisou is like a love affair with a Frenchman (just so we’re 100% clear, I’m referencing its translation, ‘Kiss Kiss’). Not that I know what it’s like – but I’ve seen Olivier Martinez and Diane Lane get it on in Unfaithful. Poor Richard.
Get giddy and just a wee bit sensual with this tipple + aphrodisiac combo!

Fanny Limehead + Fish & Chips
Blowing citrus kisses, this Riesling is a fruity concoction giving whiffs of green apple and lychee. A fiesty little fiend, its mysterious and fiercely feminine aura stems from the perfume-esque jasmine. She’s just like the rebellious girl-next-door that you’ve been stalking through your window, only this time, you’ve met for the first time at your local fish and chip shop.
Intense in its acidity but a smooth operator, for sure, Fanny Limehead will cut through and wash away that dirty but delicious grease from your freshly fried goods.
