M. J. Bale Gentlemen’s Clothier voucher
M.J. Bale CEO & founder, Matt Jensen, had an idea to create a tailoring-centric Australian menswear brand with a quality-value proposition like no other. The functionality of the garments had to be perfect so that the customer would be as stylish and comfortable here and travelling overseas, whether business or casual attire, formal events and tuxedos. Matt wanted a closeness of supply chain between Australian woolgrowers, Italian weavers, Japanese tailors and the ultimate product the customer was wearing. Choosing authenticity, integrity, provenance and character as brand pillars, Matt launched the brand with a range that would evolve to become a total wardrobe collection. 
Valid to 18/11/18. Value: $500. Website

Win your own Weight in McVitty Grove Wine!
Win your own weight in McVitty Grove wine! Half each of Pinot Noir and Pinot Gris!
Pinot Noir - a classic cool climate PN displaying all the restraint, depth and length that a high altitude well managed vine will display. Restrained earthiness and minerality on initial palate with balanced green strawberries and a hint of oaky plum on the long and sustained back palate. A lighter toned wine drinking very well now that will continue to age and build on its already rounded complexity. Pinot Gris - Dry and fresh on initial palate with a herbaceous melon, pineapple and passionfruit middle. Crisp and dry back with short balanced minerality. A light, fruit driven cool climate refreshing wine. Wine notes by Hamish Ta-Mé of 10,000 Paces Wine and Art, Springett's Arcade, Bowral.
Valid to 18/12/17. Value: $900
