New From Kilikanoon
'Best Shiraz in the World' - sold out!
Kilikanoon’s flagship caused a serious stir on release yesterday – it sold out by lunchtime – and for good reason. Classified ‘Excellent’, 97 Points from Decanter, Shiraz Trophy AND Best Australian Producer from the IWSC. If you were lucky enough to get some. Enjoy!
The Kilikanoon portfolio offers a bevy of Clare Valley brilliance including the classic Covenant Shiraz and the 96-point Mort's Block Riesling, described by Langton's Brokerage Sales Manager, Pierre Durand, as ‘the most balanced and enjoyable Kilikanoon Mort’s Block Riesling I have ever had on release.’
Domaine Naturaliste by Bruce Dukes
New from Margaret River
‘Absolutely nails all that is good about Margaret River Chardonnay,’ says James Halliday of Domaine Naturaliste’s Floris Chardonnay. Bruce Dukes established his winery in 2012, after almost 20 years in Margaret River. He knows the region like the back of his hand, and each of his wines is an ode to West Coast brilliance. Access quality and value from Domaine Naturaliste.
Bordeaux En Primeur is coming to Sydney and Melbourne on 28 and 29 May, with two highly anticipated events.
