As the liquidators for one of the more spectacular winery collapses, we can only thank these corporate undertakers for dumping this weeks red wine offering so precipitously. The white also comes from a troubled winery, but the circumstances are not quite as dramatic. They both represent outstanding value and, more importantly, are delicious drinking.

So, here's to Price Waterhouse!

2012 Marquis Philips 2008 McLaren Vale Grenache: $10 each

A serious bargain arising from the collapse of a major wine exporter to the USA, this wine was dumped by PWC with no regard to its quality. It is delicious, being rich, warm and smooth with huge, creamy fruit balanced by gentle, supple tannins. If you like Cotes-du-Rhone and Chateauneuf-du-Pape reds (the better ones are generally made from at least 75% grenache) you should love this. This winery was described a few years ago by Robert Parker (arguably the world’s most influential wine critic) as providing the best value wines in the world, It is different to the standard shiraz’s from this region, but it is delicious and at this liquidation price, less than half its American price, it really is worth trying. Also do read the extended notes on the website – it is quite a story !

Chris Hill 2006 “Unearthed” Hunter Valley Chardonnay: $10 each

Again dumped, this time by a creditor, this delicious lighter bodied white has a brilliant yellow gold colour, and shows good richness balanced by fresh and lemony acid. The oak is very subtle and the end product is smooth and really enjoyable. (NB Cork closure). Halliday rated these wines as 9/10 in 2011 and noted they retail for $45 per bottle so at $10 they are a steal.
