Kamberra Wine Company wines hit Local Liquor stores
A wide selection of local Kamberra Wine Company's Meeting Place wines 2009 vintage are now available in Canberra and Queanbeyan Local Liquor outlets.

Traditionally available at cellar door only, Meeting Place wine varieties now available at Local Liquor outlets include a Sauvignon Blanc Semillon, Chardonnay, Riesling, Viognier, Sparkling Chardonnay, Shiraz and Cabernet Sauvignon Merlot.

The inspiration behind the wine label name comes from the translation of the Aboriginal word Kamberra meaning 'meeting place'. Kamberra Wine Company Assistant General Manager, Will Penny, said this name was chosen as it reflects the essence of what Meeting Place wines are all about.

"Meeting Place wines are all about providing a point of meeting for the local grower, winemaker and wine drinker. A glass of Meeting Place wine connects all three," said Will.

Will expects the Meeting Place wines to be popular among the local community as the flavours are fresh and lively.

"The white varieties are lively with bright, zesty fruit flavours. The Sauvignon Blanc Semillon shows flavours of passionfruit and green melons, the Chardonnay offers fresh aromas of white peach and grapefruit and the Sparkling Chardonnay has intense white peach and citrus characters. These wines are perfect accompaniments to a meal of grilled chicken or fish," he explained.

"The Riesling boasts intense citrus, floral and exotic lychee flavours. The Viognier is an exciting wine with a combination of apricot, lychee and spice flavours. Both are great to drink with Asian dishes," he said.

Kamberra Wine Company is also renowned for its variety of Meeting Place reds. The company's wine maker was awarded the 2009 Jimmy Watson Trophy for young red wine.

"The Shiraz has intense perfume and bright red fruits. The Cabernet Sauvignon Merlot is a gutsy, earthy wine with intense dark fruit and a soft elegant structure. I would recommend both these wines to accompany a meal of beef or duck," said Will.

The Kamberra Wine Company business includes a winery, function centre and Connoisseur Catering.

Kamberra Wine Company's function centre provides a scenic winery setting for all types of functions including weddings, conferences and parties. The venue is complete with open fireplace, built-in dance floor, full-length glass windows and covered verandas opening onto vineyards, gardens and a reflection pond.

Kamberra Wine Company's function centre is located at the Kamberra Wine Complex in North Lyneham, only ten minutes from the Canberra city centre. It offers three modern rooms with full conference facilities and ample free parking on-site.
