Week in Review 09-02-18
Saturday, February 9, 2019 in Review
Thank you to everyone who shared, bid on and bought lots at the Philip White Fundraising auction on Tuesday. We’ve seen some big auctions during our time and this one drew the third highest viewing figures in our history of online auctions. There’s a lot of love out there for Whitey, and (with the buyers premiums paid) you have manage to raise thouseands of dollars to go towards his medical and other expenses. Read more about Philip White here.
This week we also released a Dawson & James vertical 3-pack, one of our best ever Confidentials, the latest Classified Outstanding The Signature Cabernet Shiraz from Yalumba and one of the best value Pinots we've ever seen from Wickhams Road.
$30 is the sweet spot for value
We find, that when it comes to wine, $30 is the point where quality most often meets value. Explore our portfolio of highly-rated of $30 wines.
Dawson & James Chardonnay 3-pack – ‘13 ‘14 ‘15
Vintage after vintage, whether the scores come from James Halliday of the Wine Companion, Campbell Mattinson of Wine Front or the Real Review's Huon Hooke, Dawson & James Chardonnays rarely fall below gold-medal standard. Here’s your chance to compare and contrast three vintages of this model of consistency.
Confidential: Mount Barker Riesling 6-Pack 2017
Perfumed, fragrant, fine and elegant, this wine has all the swagger of youth but also has the pedigree to age very well. The big reveal, when you order lands, will be the winery’s name. You’ll know it.
Yalumba The Signature Cabernet Shiraz, Barossa 2014
It's an Australian classic and newly minted 'Outstanding' in Langton's Classification VII. The winemakers of Yalumba have poured their care and expertise into The Signature Cabernet Shiraz for over 50 years of vintages. The 2014 has been described as 'pitch perfect' by Campbell Mattinson, so only one question remains: how many bottles will you add to your cellar?
Wickhams Road Pinot Noir Gippsland 2018
A Gippsland Pinot Noir from Franco d’Anna. We’ve been talking about Franco quite a bit recently. His sold out 1er Pinot entered Langton’s Classification VII last year and his second tier wines sold out in something like record time. Wickham’s Road is his value Gippsland label that produces what Gary Walsh describes as ‘a gift to Pinot Noir drinkers.’ This is simply good drink Pinot. You’re going to want at least six.
In the tasting room this week, we hosted portfolio tastings for our Wine Brokers with Peter Dredge of Meadowbank in Tasmania and Stuart Northey of Anonymous Wines. Oh, and Sarah Crowe of Yarra Yering paid us a visit too.
