Now some Cabernet muck from the Duck!

David (aka "Duck") Anderson was the man whose wine, the famous "Ducks Muck", exploded onto the world stage when single bottles of his wine were selling for thousands of dollars in America. In 1994, shortly before this sky-rocket took off, Duck helped a friend plant a new vineyard at Heathcote called Mt Pleasant Creek Estate. The grapes were so good that some of them were used in the famous 1997 Ducks Muck. Duck  Anderson now owns this vineyard and is on record of saying "essentially a dry-land vineyard, it produces stunning fruit". It is most famous for its shiraz, but its cabernet is simply wonderful and this week we release the smooth, aromatic and softly dry 2009 cabernet sauvignon / cabernet sauvignon blend. Strongly recommended.

We also release this week a delicious, fresh, almost un-oaked chardonnay from Western Australia – Peos Estate is a family owned and highly rated vineyard, and 2011 in the west was a terrific vintage. A great alternative to the ubiquitous sauv blanc blends. We also have two "Bargains of the Week" on offer, the smooth and gently dry 2010 Alkoomi cabernet for only $10 and the fresh and crisp 2012 McLaren Vale blend from Marienberg for only $10.

For drinks parties or for that wedding or birthday party, we have a lot of other high-quality, well-priced wines that will mean you and your guests will indeed drink better for less! In both the Sydney and Melbourne regions we can also provide beer and soft drinks, and we have glasses and ice bins buckets available at no charge. It is very easy to get it all to your door, you can pay on-line or on invoice and we guarantee prompt delivery - visit to see our full range.

Mt Pleasant Heathcote (Vic) 2009 Cabernet Sauvignon/ Cabernet Franc

Buy now for $23

From the same vineyard that contributed grapes to the famous Ducks Muck, this smooth, supple and beautifully balanced red has a delicious softness underpinned by very gentle, almost soft, fine-grained tannins. The tasting notes finish with “wonderful” – enough said! It is worth reading the background notes about how Ducks Muck was selling at one stage for $3,500 a bottle - amazing stuff!

Peos Estate Manjimup (WA) "One Tree Bridge" 2011 Chardonnay

Only $12 a bottle - 33% off RRP of $18.00

The Peos family have owned their farm for over 80 years, and their "One Tree Bridge" label is normally destined for the export market but like so many others it has stayed at home. From a great year, this is delicious and refreshing drinking with just a touch of richness balanced by fresh but gentle acid, thus avoiding the rich, over-oaked flavours of many chardonnays – terrific value at only $12.


Alkoomi Frankland River (WA) 2010 Cabernet Sauvignon

Only for $10

Alkoomi is rated at 5 (red) stars, the top level and this wine comes from the excellent 2010 vintage. Medium bodied, this red is nicely supple and smooth, well balanced and finishing with a long, quite dry, finish. Dan Murphy 's were offering it at $22, and Wine Selectors at $18, so at this weeks special price of only $10 a bottle it is a great bargain.

Marienberg McLaren Vale 2012 Sauvignon Blanc Semillon

Only for $9

Picked up from the wreckage of another vineyard collapse, and from an outstanding "10 out of 10" vintage, this clean and crisp white has only 11.5% alcohol. It has fresh, lemony flavours and is smooth and crisp with nice suppleness. At this weeks special price of only $9 a bottle, this delicious young wine is seriously good value.
