We aim to have all wines be vintage specific. In the case the listed vintage is out of stock and you note you would like that particular vintage, we will inform you via email for approval to go ahead.
About This Wine
Throughout the year, we put together a number of special sale dozens to suit the season. This is a case of hearty reds - red wines of character that will be consumed through the cooler months, or for anyone who prefers 'bigger' reds.
We rummage through the warehouse and pool new arrivals, pallet-ends, changed vintages and the like. We also have several rich and fruit-focused European wines that have just arrived (not yet offered) and they are tossed into the mix as well.
We want to keep the $ very low – so low that you can open every bottle without care - $16+ seems like a good average (considering every wine in the mix was originally offered for more than that (or would have been), you will not lose in this endeavour – many of the wines were $25-35 and they are not even at peak).
We put something for everyone in the mixes – perhaps some Burgundy, Italian Dolcetto, Latin American Carmenere, McLaren Vale Shiraz, Spanish Tempranillo, Langhorne Creek Cabernet and maybe even some rosé. We have approximately 80-100 different items to blend into the cases so there will be a terrific mix and most of the wines will last well beyond this year (2-4 years at least).
Our only criteria for the case is...would we drink the bottle ourselves? If the answer is yes, it goes into the mix.
All have pristine/original provenance, all are recent/good vintages (no old plonk here) and all are valued at more than the individual average – in most cases, way more (when I use the term "valued" I mean from us, not some over-inflated/hypothetical retail price with a slash through it that no one on the face of the earth will offer – that means the actual value is even greater).
FIRST COME FIRST SERVED up to 6 x cases/person (72 total bottles – by requesting more than one case, you are bound to receive a really interesting mix of bottles - if nothing else, this is a terrific opportunity at education where the choices have been performed on your behalf but the benefits are all yours)...
