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

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.
