When Aussie cellars need to clear space for the next vintage they move fast, selling off bottles with scant labelling. Just what our Buyer discovered at this 5-Star Barossa cellar. A superb cask aged Shiraz, rippling with blackberry and sweet spice.
The grapes for this luxurious barrel aged Aussie red were grown a stone's throw from the likes of Greenock Creek, Torbreck, Kalleske and Seppeltsfield. The cellar has been rated a full 5-Star by Australia's foremost wine critic, James Halliday, and their wines are some of Down Under's most iconic, selling for over $90 a bottle. So how can we bring it to you at such a low price? It's all down to the Aussie tradition of 'cleanskins'. These allow top wineries to shift excess parcels with minimal labelling, but you have to be there ' at the cellar door ' to grab them. That's where our on the spot Buyer, Dan Parrott, is key, ready to swoop and secure the deal. Ripe and rich, this powerful red is perfect with steak and chunky chips or roast lamb.
