...say it 3 times, quickly... we struggled... Trophy winning McLaren Vale Nero d’Avola, Australia’s best and most expensive Merlot, the biggest and most complex Aussie Tempranillo we’ve ever seen and a stack of beautiful Shiraz. And, let's not forget the Vintage Fortified from 919, made by master fortified makers Erin and Jenny Semmler. At $65RRP it’s not cheap but worth every penny; glossy and decadent, packed with chocolate, mulberries and spice.

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

A staggering line up of top shelf goodies in this tasting pack featuring James Irvine's world class $130 Merlot and a ridiculously lush and tasty Vintage Fortified (or Vintage Port in the old language) made by master fortified winemakers Jenny and Eric Semmler whose winemaking experience spans Brown Brothers, St Huberts, Hardy’s and Constellation brands. Zonte’s Footstep Lake Doctor also stacks up with multiple Gold Medals - think plums, chocolate and fine tannins. Curtis contribute with their new release Cabernet which just picked up Winestate’s best in Class. 919 impressed us again with their 2015 Temp - the biggest and blackest Aussie Temp we’ve ever tasted - so that gets a guernsey here too. Another stand out recently was the medium bodied and complex Reserve Shiraz from Deviation Road in the Adelaide Hills. Monterra have produced a stunning Nero that we've all been squirrelling away in staff orders - has nabbed a lazy Trophy too. The latest release Oliver's Taranga Shiraz is the tasting panel's favourite ever from them. There's also dense and chewy Limited Edition Shiraz from Curtis, Leconfield’s 94pt lush and black McLaren Vale Shiraz... with the 2016 Hamilton Centurion here too. McLaren Vale 2016 and Shiraz look to be the perfect match, as extended ripening times allowed for perfectly ripe fruit and often no acid adjustments required for the wines…in the words of Jock Harvey, Chalk Hill and Alpha Crucis grower ‘2012 was a dream... and this vintage may well eclipse 2012'. Speaking of Chalk Hill, we’ve included their 2015 Shiraz which has just picked up a whopping 95pts from James Halliday - marking it as an absolute bargain at $25/btl retail.
