Big Dan also has a Cracka of a wine! $22 v $13!

Last week we released, and in a few hours ran out of, a very good pinot for $14 from Salitage when Cracka Wines had previously had it for sale at $19.99. With the cooler weather on the way we now turn to cabernet, and are releasing the 2010 Alkoomi cabernet for only $13 – and this week we get our jollies from seeing it at Dan Murphy’s at $22! Smooth and supple with a lovely, dry (cabernet) finish, this is a serious bargain.
We also release another very nice pinot from the west, this time the lighter style Peppermint Creek pinot from the excellent 2011 vintage as well as the fresh and crisp Briarose Estate Sauvignon Blanc from Margaret River.
For our “Bargain of the Week” we have another special from Salitage – for only $7.50 a bottle you can indulge in the 2009 Chardonnay Verdelho - from a great vintage, it is soft, delicious, and easy drinking with a nice, clean finish. With a RRP of $18 you will get a real bargain for this week only at $7.50 a bottle.
With all four of the wines coming from across the desert, it looks like the West has won the honours this week! 


Alkoomi Frankland River (WA) 2010 Cabernet Sauvignon

Alkoomi is one of the very few 5 star rated wineries in the Frankland River region, located about 150km SE of Margaret River in Western Australia. This medium bodied wine is nicely supple and smooth, and has an excellent balance between the soft fruit and the fine grained tannins, and concludes with a long, quite dry, finish. With Dan Murphy offering it at $22, and Wine Selectors at $18, for only $13 it is a great bargain.

Peppermint Creek Manjimup (WA) 2011 Pinot Noir 
Produce for the export market by a 5 star winery, Peppermint Creek comes from Manjimup, some 75 km SE of Margaret River. This is a lighter style with good soft fruit and nice refreshing acidity. With a touch of oak well balanced by the fruit, this is a smooth and supple, easy-drinking and affordable wine for people who want a lighter red.

Briarose Estate Margaret River (WA) 2012 Sauvignon Blanc 
43% off RRP of $21.00

Rated at a very high 93 points by James Halliday, this crisp and refreshing white is produced by the top-notch Briarose boutique winery situated at the cooler, more southern end of the Margaret River region. From the great 2012 vintage, and with a bright, pale straw colour, this delicious young wine is medium bodied with excellent balance and fruity softness but shows refreshing crispness with citrus tones to finish. Excellent young wine and great value at only $12 a bottle.  

Salitage Pemberton (WA) 2009 "Tree House" Chardonnay Verdelho

58% off RRP of $18.00

From a great vintage, and now 5 years old, it has softened beautifully, and with only minimal oak treatment it is smooth and clean with just a touch of richness. Delicious, soft wine with a nice clean finish that has been one of our big sellers – we recently got the last stocks available and with a RRP of $18 you will get a real bargain at only $7.50 for this week only.

Quality Red Wine “Bin Ends” at $120 a case

If you like a bit of variety in your drinking then give this a try. At a mixed case price well below their individual bottle price, this is that rare combination of value and quality! We would welcome your phone-call or email questions on any of the wines we have available and we are very happy to take orders that way if you prefer. 
All the best,
