Super Premium Red Dozen
Here’s a magical member-only offer for your consideration... you’ll get three bottles of each of these four stunning wines.
Yaldara Grand Cuvee Cabernet Shiraz, with an RRP of $200 a bottle is a super-premium stunner laden with deep dark fruits, a glossy texture, excellent length, and cedary oak. It is truly exceptional.
Next up, There’s Curtis' Limited $100 a bottle, 96pt. McLaren Vale Shiraz. Power meets grace here, as blue and black fruits collide with curlicues of fragrant French oak.
You’ll also receive four bottles of the Karl's Scepter Shiraz, a rich and satisfying, 94pt., full bodied, Barossa Shiraz offering generous dark fruits, chocolate, vanilla, cherries, plum and spice.
Finally, the wonderful Mitchell Peppertree Shiraz, perhaps the best release of this wine in a decade. A 96 pointer, the 2015 vintage is riper, darker and more supple than their normal releases and is drinking brilliantly.
PLUS the kicker, a bonus bottle of Martins 97pt. McLaren Vale Shiraz valued at $150. Fruits are blacks and blues, with blueberries, blackberries, olive tapenade, cedar and vanilla populating a powerful and long palate. The tannins are polished, waxy and plentiful. The overall package, outstanding!
There are so many exciting talking points in this pack, but let’s start with the Italian wines. We have already featured Conte di Campiano in the past, but the Nero di Troia is a new wine to us. It has plums, black pepper and tobacco and is super silky. Relatively high in acidity backed by plenty of fine tannins. Very slurpable indeed. The other is the Vini Giribaldi Rie Organic Barbera di Alba Riserva 2015. Packed to the brim with red berries and assertive acidity. Definitely decant this one to see the best of it. The other exciting aspect of the pack is new wines from Lone Palm Vineyard and Stonehouse. The Lone Palm Hillside Shiraz and Crossings Shiraz are both sourced from the prized Marananga sub-region of the Barossa Valley. Each vineyard shows different use of French and American oak, but they both have something in common; they are amazing. The Stonehouse Reserve Quartz Block Icon Shiraz is the big one, a massive $150RRP and just as big and powerful as the price tag. Black and blue fruit packaged with some chocolate and cinnamon and fine oak tannin. Delicious. Through the Tasting Glass Cheshire Cat Shiraz is another stunning Barossa Valley Shiraz made by Andrew Hardy. It has violets along with black and blue fruits galore and it is definitely a prospect for the cellar. Some familiar faces you should find in the pack include the delicious Manser Dad’s Block Shiraz, from our own Phil Manser, Heirloom’s stunning new vintage of their Barossa Shiraz and a pair of premiums from Martins Vineyard and Richard Hamilton Centurion. There is also a lovely new Shiraz from Wits End Atlas that needs no cellaring, it is best enjoyed fresh and juicy. The last wine in the bunch is the Kilikanoon Meymans Shiraz Cabernet. Clare Valley is best known for Riesling, but Shiraz and Cabernet, especially under the watchful eye of Kevin Mitchell this Shiraz Cab is a belter. There you have it, all that premium red with a massive $600 off the RRP. Merry Christmas indeed!
