It’s not all it’s Cracked up to be! $23 v $16!


In fact it is a lot less than it is “Cracked” up to be. We have got a fresh shipment of the very nice Blue Pyrenees 2009 bubbly and can offer it at only $16 a bottle – this is substantially less than discount groups such as who currently have it for sale at $23. Originally owned by Remy Martin (incidentally, they own Krug champagne) and now known as Blue Pyrenees, it is pretty clear that some of the champagne making skills have been retained.

Grown at one of Australia's very first "cool climate" sites that was planted out some 50 years ago, the Blue Pyrenees 2009 Brut from western Victoria is a very nice and very affordable Aussie sparkler that really is a bargain. This week we also release another Chris Hill wine, this time a young and delicious chardonnay from McLaren Vale as well as a ready to drink cabernet-merlot from a terrific vintage and perhaps the best area in Australia for this blend, the Margaret River in the west.

You and your guests can drink better for less!

For Christmas parties, or for that wedding or birthday party, we have a lot of other quality, well -priced wines that will mean you and your guests will indeed drink better for less ! We can also provide French champagne at very competitive prices and in the Sydney and Melbourne regions we can also provide beer and soft drinks, and we have glasses and ice buckets available at no charge.

Oceans Estate Margaret River (WA) 2009 Cabernet Merlot

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.

Sourced by Chris from a very well-known vineyard in the Blewitt Springs area of McLaren Vale, this is a very nice, gently rich chardonnay with a refreshing clean finish. A brilliant pale-gold colour, this wine shows aromas of sweet fruit with hints of vanilla. Smooth and supple and from the best vintage year in a generation, this wine finishes nice and clean with hints of lemon. Delicious young chardonnay.
