Thanks to the Yanks, Helen stays at home!


The Kirby family of Village Roadshow fame have moved into wine in a big way, and their efforts were rewarded last year when their Yabby Lake pinot noir (from their main vineyard in the Mornington Peninsula) won the Jimmy Watson trophy, the first pinot ever to do so. They also own the famous Mt Helen vineyard in the Strathbogie ranges in Victoria which they bought from Tisdalls, one of the great names back twenty or so years. This week we release their 2010 Cooralook Chardonnay, but their efforts in making this gently rich, fresh and delicious wine were rewarded by the American importer cancelling a very large order. Happy days for us – (Mt) Helen stays in Australia and is now available for only $11 a bottle!
 
Yabby Lake also have one of the best restaurants on the peninsula though care needs to be taken with their wine list as some of the wines are “tres ordinaire” (but the pinot is magnificent).
 
This week we also release another delicious red from the former Rothbury estate vineyards in the Hunter Valley. It is very sad how the Hunter wines are so neglected by the market today – their semillons and their shiraz’s can be outstanding but are simply not in demand. The Sussex Ridge 2009 shiraz was grown in a superb vintage year, and this lighter bodied, smooth and softer style of red is a bargain at only $9.00.

More Gold from that thar Mr Hill!

More Gold from that thar Mr Hill!


Over the last few years we have enjoyed releasing some wonderful older wines from Chris Hill, some under his label, and some he sourced for us, and a lot were at what can only be described as silly prices. The older reds are just about gone, but this week we release his smooth and rich 2012 “Capricornia” McLaren Vale Shiraz – from a superb vintage, this is great value at only $12 a bottle and will drink very nicely over the next few years.

We also release the 2009 Oceans Estate cab-merlot – this is ready to drink and comes from a terrific vintage and perhaps the best area in Australia for this blend, the Margaret River in the west. We also have two Bargains of the Week. The first is the Carolina chardonnay for only $9 – this Victorian wine is fresh and clean, with only a touch of development despite being five years old. Very nice drinking from one of the better cool climate regions - a real bargain at this weeks special price. We are also putting on special again the warm and smooth Doc Adams “Vigilant” 2012 Tempranillo – from a superb vintage in McLaren Vale, and at only $9 a bottle, it is terrific value.

Oceans Estate Margaret River (WA) 2009 Cabernet Merlot

Only $12 a bottle


The cabernet-merlot blend is very successful in the Margaret River, particularly in such a great vintage year as 2009. Produced by the Tomasi family in the Karridale sub region of the Margaret River wine region, this one is round and smooth with nice balance and medium weight. The fine grained tannins have softened with maturity and now provide an excellent structure leading to a long, quite firm but gently drying finish. This is really good drinking and great value at only $12 a bottle.
BUY NOW FOR $12
 

Capricornia 2012 McLaren Vale Shiraz

Buy it now for $12 a bottle


Good affordable shiraz from a top region and a superb vintage. Made by Chris Hill, it is warm, smooth, and rich in the mouth but not too heavy. It has nice balance, big fruit and excellent soft, ripe fruit flavours with a long, gently drying finish. Excellent, traditional shiraz that is really good value drinking.
BUY NOW FOR $12
 

Carolina (Central Victoria) 2009 Chardonnay

Bargain of the Week at 58% off - $8 each.


This boutique, cool climate winery has produced a very clean and appealing chardonnay that shows nice aged characters without being too buttery or over-developed. Really good, easy drinking and, at this weeks special price of only $9 a bottle, very affordable.
BUY NOW FOR $8
 

Doc Adams "Vigilant" 2012 McLaren Vale Tempranillo

Bargain of the Week at 44% off - $9 each.


Doc Adams is a 5 star rated winery located in McLaren Vale, arguably one of the best areas in Australia for growing this Spanish variety. From an outstanding vintage year, this young wine is already drinking very nicely indeed. Very smooth and supple, this red is fuller bodied, showing some nice spice and warmth, and a long, gently dry finish. Recommended if you like bigger, warmer styles of reds and you want a change from shiraz. At this weeks special price of just $9 a bottle it is outstanding value

One way to avoid headaches - Its “Instant Cellar Time”!

One way to avoid headaches - Its “Instant Cellar Time”!



Many people do not have either the patience or the space to store young wines until they reach their full potential. With the reds, it also means more likelihood of headaches from all that youthful tannin! Wines that have a bit of age on them, and particularly ones from good vintages, generally retail for a serious premium. Thus the traditional solution for those less patient people who do not have a cellar – vinous infanticide!
 
We can help solve this drama! We have a number of older wines from top vintages hiding in our full list and they have sufficient bottle age to show their true colours. Most importantly, we can offer them for a fraction of their current release price. These older gems include the 2006 Eagle Vale (Margaret River) Cabernet, the 2009 Mt Pleasant Creek (Heathcote) Shiraz and the 2006 Virgin Hills cabernet. This weeks release of the 2008 Salitage chardonnay is also a lovely wine. Go to Premium Wines on our website to see a selection – they are all drinking beautifully and worth a look. Why not think of a mixed case of these and try to keep them for that special occasion?
 
This week we release two older wines that are ready to drink and that nicely supplement our Premium wines. The Salitage 2008 chardonnay is still youthful and is a beauty. From a great year and from one of the west’s premier wineries it is soft, fresh and smooth with a touch of richness and is a great bargain at only $14. We also release another smooth, soft red from Rothbury, the Hope Estate shiraz from the outstanding 2009 vintage at only $12 a bottle.

Finally we have two bargains this week, the first being the Salitage 2009 Chardonnay Verdelho. At only $8 a bottle it represents outstanding value, having lovely soft fruit, good balance and a nice clean, dry finish. The second is the Basedow Wines 2010 "White Label" Barossa Valley Shiraz – from a top vintage, this invitingly warm and supple shiraz is beautifully balanced and has very gentle tannins at the finish. A serious bargain for only $10 a bottle (its RRP was $24) but do try and give it a bit of air when opened as it needs time to breathe.

Salitage Pemberton 2008 Unwooded Chardonnay

Only $14 a bottle


From one of the most prestigious wineries in the west, this chardonnay is a beauty. Still youthful, it is smooth, clean and fresh with delicious soft-fruit flavours and a gentle touch of richness. From a top vintage it is really lovely drinking. Widely exported, you can for example still buy it from one of Singapores top wholesalers for $47 – this outstanding wine is real value at only $14 - drink over the next two years.

Hope Estate "Yengo" 2009 Hunter Valley Shiraz   

Buy it now for $12 a bottle


Another wine from the former Rothbury Estate and grown in in an excellent vintage year, this lighter bodied, smooth and gently dry wine illustrates why the Hunter is so popular for well-priced, easy drinking reds. With delicious fresh acid nicely balanced with warmth, a touch of the famous Hunter "earth", and with gentle tannins to finish, this is exactly the style that made the Hunter famous.  With a RRP price of $20, at only $12 it is also a bargain that will drink well for at least three more years.
