Exclusive ANZ Christmas Reds Dozen
Christmas is the time for giving, so we thought we would give ANZ Staff Club members a chance to get their hands on an amazing pack that includes 4 bottles of red worth over $100 a bottle!
Some familiar faces in this pack, but the exciting thing is, many of them are new vintages! Martins Limited Series Shiraz 2016 was a staple and has been enjoyed for a long time, but we now have the 2018 vintage, which is a big step up in quality and will be as well received by ANZ Staff Club, we’re sure. Another returning vintage is the Curtis Limited Series Shiraz with the 2018. Like the 2016 vintage, it has smooth balanced oak, and plush black and red fruit. Long time ANZ Staff Club members would remember the Irvine Grand Merlot from the 2009 and 2012 vintages, but those new to it, Irvine make the countries best Merlot, without question! The Pasha Bin 388 Shiraz is a relative newcomer compared to the others but rounds out the 3 figure RRP wines. It is rich, long and smooth and has all the hallmarks of a long stint in the cellar, but if you’re impatient, you can have it now with an hour in the decanter. Due to a big resurgence in the popularity in Cabernet Sauvignon, we present you three amazing Cab’s from three exceptional Cabernet Regions, Penna Lane from Clare, Schoolhouse Headmaster from Coonawarra and Mitolo Serpico from McLaren Vale, all amazing and great displays of the terroir. Representing blends, we have the Kilikanoon Meymans Shiraz Cabernet, which I would argue is better than the straight Shiraz with more plush and rich flavours. The other is the Mad Hatter Grenache Mataro Shiraz, a special wine made by Ox Hardy especially for winedirect.com.au and perfectly balances all three components to make a lovely blend! The final three are all Shiraz. The Sieben Klon from the Lienert brothers has been a big hit with winedirect.com.au regulars and we are very happy to have their stunning Barossa Shiraz on board. A great example of barrel blending and how it can create a very unique wine. The Glenlofty Shiraz 2017 won a Top Gold medal at the 2020 Royal Adelaide Wine Show and topped it off with a Gold medal at the most recent Royal Adelaide Wine Show, so you know it has pedigree AND staying power. Finally, an aged beauty from Hare’s Chase in Marananga which scored a mighty 96 pts from James Halliday. ‘Tis the season indeed.
