No One Will Order This v7.0


Price as configured: $120.00

We love our savoury vinos and we've got a few new and exciting ones to share with you in this pack along with some familiar favourites. 919 Wines' meaty 2012 Temp features again, perfectly cellared and ready to rip, and Curtis' fine-boned but powerful Limited Series Grenache also makes a return. We've had Monterra’s delicious candied and fruit-driven Nero D’Avola in for a month or two now but we thought it should make an appearance again before it disappears in staff orders. We've also just taken hold of the new vintage of Zonte's 'Violet Beauregard' Malbec - the last vintage we stocked was the 2013 which picked up a 97 at the Sydney Wine Show - it was incredibly popular amongst our faithful and this 2015 will likely receive the same cult following having picked up 5 Golds and a 94 from James Halliday to date. Hesketh dropped in their Temp and Touriga for us to have a look at the other day... one sip of each and we were sold - now it's your turn. Enjoy!

Allow us to prattle on a little more about this...

Strap in for these great alternate varietals! Our Gold brimmed heroine is ‘Violet Beauregard’, a Malbec from Zonte’s Footstep. This new world drop shows plush blueberries, hints of smoked meats and fine tannins all whilst delicately perfumed. A couple of old friends return in 919 Wines Tempranillo and the Curtis Family Limited Series Grenache, both delicious wines which will benefit from a run through the decanter to show their full glory. Monterra’s Trophy winning, Italo-beauty Nero D’Avola is up for grabs again with its cool climate candied fruit appeal. From Hesketh, we have a couple of new wines we’d love to share (actually, we’d love to keep the lot to ourselves, but that'd be plain rude). The Hesketh 2014 Touriga Nacional is the only version of this Portuguese varietal we’re playing with here at at the moment - a favourite for fortifieds, it’s thankfully found its way as a table wine - typically these beauties show big fruit concentration, big body and big tannin similar to Cab Sauv... this edition shows dark raspberries along with aniseed and floral perfume and will cellar excellently if you fancy. Also excellent is Hesketh's 2013 Tempranillo - medium bodied but rich with plenty of ripe fruit and spice, and a lick of cedary oak which is evident on the palate. Compare with the 919 Temp for a bit of extra dinner party fun!
