A lot of wine for less than $14 a bottle… a lovely aged blend from the Lane, poised and beautifully fruited Clare Cab from Kirrihill, 96 point Shiraz from Kilikanoon, succulent and slippey Shiraz from Curtis and a brilliant bonus tokay and the sound of yourself saying ‘why yes, I’ll have one of those please’ .
A delicious almost 10 year old, drink now Cabernet blend from a winery rated 5 red stars by Halliday. The RRP is $39 - yours for just $12.50 a bottle. It is drinking beautifully too, with trademark angular Cab greenery softening, spice, cedar and pepper all on show. This is high quality, enjoyable drinking.
Nevermind age before beauty... this is aged and beautiful because of it. A top end white wine from a Halliday rated 5 red star winery aged to perfection. There's grassy Sauvignon given length and lanolin from the Semillon. We also found ginger, creaminess and exceptional length.
It’s not often you can pick up a Pinot for $15... and this one has 95 from Halliday, a gold medal and a trophy. Indeed, these 2016 Pinots, and many more ranging in price from $42-$78, also scored 95 from Halliday... Seville Estate Old Vines Reserve, Serrata, Bindi Growers Dixon, Shaw and Smith, Paringa Estate, Stonier Reserve, Tolpuddle and 10 Minutes by Tractor’s Judd Pinot. This blinged-up, charming cool climate Pinot will only set you back $15 a bottle - we found it to be complex and savoury, with vibrant cherry and strawberry aromas, cherry, red fruits and cinnamon on the palate, all underpinned by a deliciously brooding aspect. It’s lovely now and will continue to improve with cellaring. A no-brainer for the budget-conscious Pinot drinker!
