Week in Review 06-07-19
Saturday, July 06, 2019 in Review
An office visit from one Mr Phillip Jones (of Bass Phillip fame) capped off a week featuring Australian red wine mastery of all stripes. Do not fail to experience your preferred angle.
Crown Prince Pinot Noir 2017
Undoubtedly the wine of the week. Winemaker Phillip Jones believes that the ‘17s are his best yet. At only a fraction of the cost of his flagship, this Crown Prince makes a statement similarly hard to ignore.
‘...the best vintage we have produced.’
Chris Ringland Dimchurch 2014
The new vintage of one of those Chris Ringland wines. Hard to get, harder to forget. It’s got depth beyond normal limits - an unforgettable exercise in Barossa power.
96 Points and ‘a beacon of light’ says Ned Goodwin MW. The winery's a classic - one of the pillars of the Coonawarra. Don’t miss the last bottles we have at this Confidential price.
Seasonal Shiraz Mix
A Winter Six: fine reds from the Barossa, McLaren Vale, the Hunter, the Grampians, and WA. This one’s a no-brainer.
Last week we opened the doors to our Hoppers Crossing warehouse for the first time. In the rain and cold, wine-loving bargain hunters descended on our cellar, snapping up single bottles and collecting by the case. All fine wines to pack their cellars.
Our warehouse team did great work on delivering a first-time experience. And, as always, it was great to meet and catch up with some of our Victorian customers.
That’s all for this week. Have a great weekend.
