Christmas in Margaret River
The go-to place for world-class Cabernet Sauvignon and Chardonnay. A region of less than 5% of the country’s vines has arguably become the most admired with many of the ‘hottest’ winemakers choosing this beautiful region to show-off their talents. We are proud to exclusively offer you some of its brightest stars including Flowstone, Watershed and Nocturne to name a few.
South Australian Treasures
Most Barossans will spend Christmas basking in the sunshine and enjoying long days on the beach or under flourishing pergolas. We have a wealth of outstanding South Australian wines and in fact, most are impossible to source back in their home cellars. Stunning wines from the Artisans of Barossa, including Hobbs of Barossa Ranges, Spinifex and Schwarz Wine Co; iconic St Hallett wines, which we are proud to bring back to the UK after a long absence; outstanding wines from the talented Dan Standish and so much more…
Indulge on the quiet
The festive season is a busy one and whilst entertaining is certainly enjoyable there is nothing quite like those quiet moments when you get to sit back, relax and take a moment to indulge yourself. We’ve put together a selection of our most luxurious wines, these opulent bottles are worthy of taking the time to switch off from the chaos of your celebrations and fully appreciate the joy of a magnificent bottle of wine.
It is hard to believe that one of Margaret River’s most premium producers, Watershed, has not set foot on our shores before. Their Awakening Cabernet Sauvignon won the trophy for Best Cabernet at both the 2016 and 2017 Perth Royal Wine Show (the first Cabernet to win this prestigious award in successive years). The quality of Watershed’s wines is further underlined by the 2016 Single Block Chardonnay, which has won gold medal after gold medal, trophies galore and 98 points from James Halliday.
Hobbs of Barossa
Hobbs vineyard is home to some of the Barossa’s oldest Shiraz, planted at the turn of the last century (1905). The vineyard is nestled in the cool, beautiful Barossa Ranges, where the climate and distinct soil structure provide ideal conditions to produce fruit of unique quality. Their ‘top’ wines - Gregor, 1905 and Tango (Shiraz / Viognier blend) - are made in minuscule quantities of 130 to 300 cases. With Greg and Allison’s blessing, our exclusivity extends throughout Europe.
Simply put, Dan Standish produces some of the very best wines to come out of the Barossa. A 6th generation Barossan, Dan Standish established his eponymous winery in 1999 whilst still working as winemaker at Torbreck Vintners. Dan’s 2016 releases are firmly placed amongst Australia's legendary wines, as three wines received 99 points and one 98 beating the likes of Hill of Grace, Chris Ringland (formerly Three Rivers) Hoffmann Vineyard Shiraz and many Run Rig vintages to name a few.
Flowstone is the creation of Stuart Pym who has enjoyed a long and illustrious wine career spanning some 30 years. Having founded Suckfizzle in 1996 and then Stella Bella in 1999, he turned all of his focus and experience in to Flowstone, which remains his main mission until this day. Accolades keep coming thick and fast including the prodigious winner of James Halliday’s Best New Winery, 2015 and of course, receiving 97 points for his 2012 Sauvignon Blanc, which is the highest score achieved for this varietal.
