The dark horse bolts in!

Hello << Test First Name >>,
About five years ago James Halliday picked the obscure Fonty’s Pool as a “dark horse” and a vineyard to watch. Last year he gave it the maximum of 5 stars and listed it in his “top 100” wineries – looks like the dark horse came in! Certainly their wine, grown at Fonty’s Pool Farm in Pemberton, WA, and made via a JV with the famous Cape Mentelle winery, is excellent drinking – and now is very affordable thanks to a cancelled export order to China. This week we release their 2010 shiraz, a rich, smooth and deliciously soft red and a real bargain at only $12 a bottle.

This week we also release a pinot noir from Burgundy, the home of the greatest pinot’s in the world. Ours comes from the Blason de Bourgogne which is a cooperative of hundreds of small growers in Burgundy and they certainly know a thing or two about pinot noir. While this pinot is by no means a “grand Cru” this smooth and gently dry wine is an excellent and affordable way to drink a genuine “Burgundy”!
Finally our “Bargain of the Week” is an outstanding Sauv.Blanc from what is being hailed as the almost perfect 2013 vintage in Marlborough – Monowai is easily our most popular white and this week we are happy to be able to offer it at a remarkable $10 a bottle.
With a rejected Chinese export, a delicious “Burgundy” from France and a bargain SB from across the ditch, this is certainly the week to go international!

Fonty's Pool "Maker" Pemberton (WA) 2010 Shiraz

29% off RRP
Fonty’s Pool Wines are a joint venture between Cape Mentelle (who make the wines) and Fonty’s Pool Farms and their wines are outstanding. The vineyards are located in one of the premium cool climate regions in Australia, as Pemberton is a bit inland from Margaret River. 
Labelled for the Chinese market, and from a great vintage year, this wine tastes rich and beautifully smooth and is surprisingly soft in the mouth, with gently drying fine-grained tannins and lovely fresh acid to balance it all up. With a RRP of $19.99, and occasionally priced up to $30, our price of $12 a bottle is outstanding value due to the cancelled export order.

Blason du Bourgogne (Burgundy, France) 2011 Pinot Noir

From an excellent vintage, this pinot has a lovely deep ruby colour, with quite rich aromas of red berries plus touches of the classic mushroom nuances. Lighter to medium bodied, it is smooth and supple with nice red-fruit flavours balanced by gentle, almost chalky (European) tannins. With a long, relatively dry finish this is a really nice pinot, but it is very different to the softer (and often sweet) Australian versions available at this price point. NB cork closure and very limited quantities.
Bargain of the Week - Monowai Hawkes Bay (NZ) 2013 Sauvignon Blanc
From one of the world's premium areas for this variety, and made by a highly regarded wine making family, this very fresh, young wine from a "nearly perfect" vintage is excellent drinking right now. It is smooth and crisp with lovely fresh fruit and big citrus flavours. At this weeks special price of only $10 a bottle but with a RRP of $18, this is outstanding value.
