One of the great traditions is the aperitif – the time to relax, reflect, watch the world go by and prepare your taste buds for what is coming up next.
We are thrilled to put a distinctly Australian flavor on the aperitif. CORRELL, named after our vivacious mother who, like us embraced this wonderful tradition, is made from a secret blend of fortified wine, orange & spices. We recommend serving it chilled, over ice or in a CORRELL cocktail, in the company of family & good friends. Enjoy CORRELL responsibly. Wine based aperitif.
Correll was the third daughter born to Connie & Arthur Jackson of Rutherglen. They were delighted to have a healthy baby but had been hoping for a boy. Not having chosen a girl’s name, they gave the nursing sister the honour of naming their bundle of joy. The rest is history!

The Real Review (Recommended 4 Stars)
Pale yellow, almost colourless. The aromas are fresh and vital and led by bitter vermouth herbs and citrus notes including grapefruit and lemon. The wine is fully sweet and again intensely-flavoured with bitter herbs - like an Italian vermouth, except that it's not dry. A very appealing flavoured wine, which would be best used as a mixer, although I could imagine enjoying sipping a small glass over ice.

"Pretty in Pedro - Inspired by winemaker Mandy Jones's time in Bordeaux, learning how that region's famous Lillet automatised wine is produced, this is gently sweet, pretty white infused with orange rind, star anise and juniper. Serve chilled over ice."

CORRELL: A New Start
"Rutherglen's Mandy Jones, of Jones Winery & Vineyard, has perfected a French-style aperitif wine that is light and aromatic.....There's a background sweetness and the warming sensation of 18 per cent alcohol. Add the naturally aromatic character of grapes grown in the Rutherglen region and you get a distinctively Australian aperitif."
Richard Cornish in Essentials magazine Summer 2016/17
“Totally delicious drink. As in, you know, totally gorgeous. It tastes of licorice, orange blossoms, mandarin and assorted sweet spices, is beautifully balanced, and while it certainly is laced with sweetness it finishes quite crisp, quite dry. It works best on ice though I first tasted it at room temperature and it had me at hello. Enough said.”
