Attention Grenache Lovers!


Rather like those people who love fried liver, or who prefer blue cheese, Grenache has its devotees. One of our best selling wines of last year was the Marquis Philips grenache, even though it was only a small band of “usual suspects” who indulged. This week we release another delicious grenache - the Barossa Valley, along with McLaren Vale, are two of the best regions in Australia for growing grenache, and in outstanding vintage years like 2012 the results are terrific. This weeks release, the Pioneer Road grenache, is scented, rich and smooth, and really is worth trying. You might also like to try the Pirramimma blend of grenache and shiraz for only $12 a bottle.

There are plenty of other bargains on our website plus lots of affordable wines for the coming Easter holidays – we can ship anywhere in Australia if you would like some fine and affordable wine waiting for you to try with all that chocolate! Sounds odd, but dark chocolate and red wine go together beautifully!

Pioneer Road Estate Barossa Valley (SA) 2012 Grenache

37% off RRP of $18.99
This well-priced wine has the typical pale cherry and brick colour and shows a lovely ripe and rich, almost floral, aroma. Medium bodied, and with a healthy 14.55 alcohol level, this really is satisfying drinking, showing very different flavours to the standard shiraz and cabernets produced in the Barossa. Smooth and rich, it shows touches of spice and cinnamon, even elements of rose-hip. It finishes gently long with no evident tannins – this is a very nice, and richly satisfying red which is also great value at only $12 a bottle.

Basedow Wines Barossa Valley (SA) 2009 “Oscars Favourite” Semillon Chardonnay

57% off RRP of $23.00
Following the collapse of Basedow last year, and the receivers quickly dumping their stock, we were offered this fresh and delicious semillon blend at a terrific price. For this week only we have further reduced the price to a bargain $10 a bottle. Light and smooth, with a hint of richness, and finishing with a citrus tang, this is refreshing and delicious. Basedows put Barossa semillon on the map 30 years ago and it all shows why in this weeks bargain special.

Buy this week only for $10

Oceans Estate Margaret River (WA) 2009 Cabernet Merlot

From an outstanding vintage, this is another great example of cabernet merlot from the premium cool climate region of Margaret River. Very smooth, with nice fresh acid this is excellent, easy drinking, with nice richness and a touch of warmth. With a long, very gently drying finish it is really good current drinking and a bargain at this weeks special price of only $10 a bottle.


The Last of the Autumn Specials
Last week we offered a “buy one case, get another one free” on three of our wines – they nearly all went but we do have a few cases left of the Hope Estate "Bushland" 2008 Hunter Valley Shiraz that was meant to go to Aldi in Europe – this offer means that you can pick up this soft, easy drinking wine from the Hunter for only $5 a bottle.
Quality Red Wine Mixed Cases for Only $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! Let us know your preferences and we will pack them to suit your taste. 
We would welcome your phone-call or email questions on any of the wines we have available. We are very happy to take orders via email or telephone and if you want us to send you a paper copy of our wine lists just let us know by return email.
All the best,
