The Twelve Hundred Dollar VIP Dozen

Hentley Farm Clo Otto is hard to get - no surprise given its $270 price tag and 98 point scores from both Huon Hooke and James Halliday. We got some, not much, but enough to include it in this exceptional pack. Kilikanoon's Revelation is even harder to get... with only 4 vintages released since 2010, all miniscule production. This doz will give you one bottle of 2016 and one of 2018. It is a Grange killer! See also Heirloom Alcala 22, winner of Decanter's best Grenache in the world, Curator's single barrel, $125 a bottle Grenache, of which just 300 bottles were made. More? Ok, a Champagne Bouché 09 - a stunning Champagne which spends more time on lees than Dom Perignon. Should we include a French White Burgundy from the best place to make Chardonnay on earth? You got it - the $120 a bottle 2019 Jean Loron - a complex and beguiling beauty which is drinking magnificently is coming your way. There's more in this pack - check the notes below for full details... they are all superb. This pack will likely sell out very quickly.

    Wines In This Pack
    Barossa Valley, SA
    98pts James Halliday, 98pts Real Review, 96pts Winefront
    This is an exceptionally dense and concentrated Barossa Shiraz, which nonetheless evinces an elegance and grace which belies that power whilst multiplying its impact. Incredible. Just 12 Barossa Shiraz have scored higher than the 98/100 the 2021 Clos Otto has just received from the Wine Companion. 12 wines across the entire history of the Wine Companion. 5 of those were for various vintages of Penfolds Grange. Winefront 96/100 'Gee, it’s some wine. Outstanding.' The Real Review 98/100 '...retains tension and focus right to almost never-ending finish. A benchmark of Barossa' James Halliday's Wine Companion 98/100 '...a study in fruit density and grace ... plush fruit and latent power. Some finish, too! Long, sustained and rich, it's a no-brainer'
    McLaren Vale, SA
    2 x Trophy, 2 x Gold Medals, 95pts Real Review
    A tiny patch of 111 year old Eden Valley Vines produces miniscule bunches of velvety Shiraz which are fermented wild with a high percentage of whole bunches. Lots of new oak here, lots of dark cherry, spice, plum, chocolate, black pepper and licorice. Good already with the promise of becoming exceptional.
    Clare Valley, SA
    97pts Sam Kim
    Just a few barrels were made of this incredible Shiraz made from the best parcels of fruit grown by Kilikanoon in 2016. Complex and refined, this wine offers blackberries, cherry, milk and dark chocolate, incredible quality French oak, effusive acidity and perfectly modulated tannins. It has massive fruit intensity AND will cellar for 20 years plus.

    Clare Valley, SA
    97pts Sam Kim
    Just 1725 bottles were made of this incredible Shiraz made from the best parcels of fruit grown by Kilikanoon in 2018. Complex and refined, this wine offers blueberries, blackberries, cherry, dark chocolate, incredible quality French oak, effusive acidity and perfectly modulated tannins. It has massive fruit intensity but is so well balanced it drinks well already AND will cellar for 20 years plus.
    Barossa Valley, SA
    96pts Sam Kim, 94pts James Suckling
    Better again than the incredible '21 vintage of the Neldner which was compared by one wine writer to Penfolds Grange. Handpicked grapes from an 80 year old contoured vineyard in Gomersal. Long slow fermentation including more than 10% whole bunch fruit before basket pressing into 30% new oak inc. both French and American. A stunningly perfumed nose leads to a palate with exceptional structure and richness. Red fruits, black fruits, coffee, cherries, red plum, dark chocolate, spice and fine, powdery tannins to finish. A pinnacle Barossa Shiraz experience.
    McLaren Vale, SA
    3 x Gold Medals, 95pts James Halliday, 95pts Real Review
    Wow! A rich, voluptuous yet well-structured red from Dandelion’s biodynamic Firehawk Farm vineyard. Inky black fruits are pierced by blackberries and then scented with cedar and spice. Long, rich, and balanced. An exceptional wine.
    Barossa Valley, SA
    94pts James Halliday
    We only got 96 bottles sadly, but then only 500 were made so I guess we should consider ourselves lucky! From a tiny. 100 yo vineyard, cool ferment, foot stomped into old French oak for just over a year. Satsuma plum fruits with raspberry and Chinese 5 spice, licorice, ginger, and more.
    Langhe, Italy
    95pts Sam Kim
    Produced in Piedmont, specifically in the famed Langhe Hills, this beautifully structured Nebbiolo is aged for 12 months in a combination of large format French oak and stainless steel. This is more approachable than an equivalent Nebb from Barolo, the tannins, whilst noticeable and an important part of the wines structure, being less strident than you'll find in most wines from nearby Barolo or Barbaresco. Lots going on here from violet and red fruit aromatics, fresh straw, vanilla, liquorice and spice through truffles, which will continue to develop as the wine ages, plus tobacco and dark chocolate. A stunner after decanting and will cellar magnificently.
    McLaren Vale, SA
    6 x Gold Medal, 1 x Trophy - Best Grenache in the World at Decanter Wine Awards
    Another incredible Alcala Grenache – which has just picked up the Decanter World Wine Awards Grenache of the Year Trophy. First in a field of 89 entries from all over the world. Ripe plush fruits of strawberry and cherry without a hint of jamminess eats perfectly cedary French oak and gives you back this perfectly balanced and engaging, world-class wine.
    Clare Valley, SA
    Gold, Top Gold and Trophy for best Grenache in Show Royal Adelaide Wine Show
    Winner of Gold and Top Gold at the Adelaide Show and subsequently awarded the Trophy for best Grenache in show. An exceptional, medium bodied, old vine offering matured for 15 month in old oak, offering wonderful aromatics. Soft fruit is made mouthwatering thanks to excellent acidity.

    Champagne, France
    95pts Champagne XS
    A staggering 12 years on lees for this amazing Vintage Champagne, giving this wine exceptional depth of flavour and complexity. Fresh green apples, toasted and buttered brioche, grilled nuts and citrus. An exceptional Vintage Champagne produced primarily from Premier and Grand Cru vineyards and vintaged in 30% oak. Such was the quality of the fruit, this Champagne was able to be bottled with just 5g/l of residual sugar.
    Pouilly Fuisse, France
    95pts Sam Kim, 96pts Kim Brebach
    A stunning White Burgundy, aka Chardonnay, from a legendary producer who has been fermenting grapes since 1711. Bill Nanson, of the Burgundy Report, first tasted this wine 3 years ago, offering ‘More complexity and vibrance to this aroma – more barrel too ... a wine that’s more about the future. Wide, saline, concentrated, and certainly mineral. The finish is subtle but very persistent. You should give this wine at least 3 years in the cellar – or I would anyway. Excellent wine, with the potential for great.’ So, we’ve waited 3 years and the wine is ravishingly beautiful – voluptuous yet structured, pendulously stonefruity yet mineral, with a lovely cheese edge that comes from barrel worked and lees stirred Chardonnay. Magic stuff.
