Uninhibited, impulsive, and a little defiant – maybe not your average wine description, but hey, this isn’t exactly your average wine.
Cheeky Monkey shakes off the uptight attitude and rules around wine because we know good wine isn’t determined by the price tag, brand name, or some expert’s opinion. Good wine is whatever you want it to be, and it pairs with whatever you want to drink it with. Maybe that’s a steak. Maybe it’s a bag of chips. Maybe it’s just another glass of wine. WE’LL CHEERS TO THAT.
Cheeky Monkey offers traditional yet untamed, flavourful wines meant to be enjoyed in their natural habitat – free from pretension and over-analysis. Embrace the unconventional and get cheeky. Besides, when did monkeying around become such a bad thing?

YO, YO, YO, THIS IS ONE TASTY MAIR-LO! This South American treat tingles the senses with its deep brick-red colour and rich fruity blackberry & plum aromas. The real CHEEKY-ness is found in the taste where flavours of fruit, cedar, earth and spice join to create a well structured wine with moderate tannins. For some Chilean attitude pair this wine with native dishes that include roast beef, lamb or pepper stir fry!
Pinot Noir, Chile
Sangiovese Syrah, Italy
YEE HAW FOR THIS GREAT WESTERN WINE! A popular California blend of Zinfandel and Shiraz captures the big, bold & beautiful western winemaking spirit.

Grilled steaks or hearty beef stews make are a perfect match.

START DRUMMING TO AN AFRICAN BEAT! This light to medium-bodied sipper is great on a Africa hot day with its crisp, green apple flavours and refreshing finish.

Enjoy on it’s own try or with lightly battered fish or poultry.
