Featuring this month - Bannockburn ‘Reclassified’ 1314 a.d Pinot Noir 2011
Bannockburn Vineyards, the trailblazers of Australia’s finest pinot noir have offered us an exclusive on their reclassified 2011 Estate Pinot Noir! Last year they introduced their ‘mini’ Bannockburn - the 1314 a.d. Pinot Noir 2011 … an excellent drop which sold out quickly. Due to the nature of the 2011 vintage they have just decided to reclassify 200 dozen of their Estate Pinot Noir (still sporting the gold Estate capsule!) to another limited bottling of 1314 a.d Reclassified. Most of this was headed to top restaurants only - we were thrilled to get a limited allocation of this bargain wine to offer you at a very special straight dozen price.
Bannockburn ‘Reclassified’ 1314 a.d. Pinot Noir 2011 Our Exclusive Price $28.99 when you buy as a straight dozen ($347.88)
Winemaker, Michael Glover decided to reclassify his 2011 Estate Pinot producing a beautifully restrained, more classically varietal pinot without the power and intensity of typical Bannockburn. Michael Glover says it has “..great varietal fruit character along with freshness lift and charm.” We love the unbeatable value for a pinot of this calibre … Their Estate Pinot would normally sell for over $55 a bottle making this a bargain indeed! Be quick stock is extremely limited..

Alvaro Palacios is one of the “rock stars” of modern Spanish wine making. This is from his family property in Rioja, where he has worked his magic in reinvigorating the old vineyards and bringing the winemaking up to the state of the art. Unfiltered, biodynamic Rioja with Garnacha predominant, mid-weight, utterly complete, ravishingly spiced and with great harmony of tannin, acid and perfume. Alvaro’s precise-yet-barely-tutored wines always speak gently but unfailingly of the earth in which they grow, and this hallmark’s in spades here. Red-black fruits in red dirt bespeak this, the jewel vineyard of Rioja Baja. Awesome, softly gloving fruit tannin is the heart from which ever-so-pleasant fruit radiates a warm glow. Gentle, earthily-fruited, classy,more-ish, delicious
Stunning effort here from this new label from Yalumba … 40% Grenache, 35% Shiraz and 25% Mataro, fermented separately then aged in new French and old Hungarian oak for texture and complexity. This wine opened out beautifully after day 2. No doubt about it 2012 was a dream growing season in the Barossa. This has to be the classiest GSM in the market for quality and value! Do not miss out on a case of this! BLUE-GOLD 2014 Sydney International Wine Competition; “Rich, ripe and velvety, this is dense without being heavy-handed, with cherry, blackberry, pomegranate and spice flavors that dance through the vigorous finish.” 91 points from Wine Spectator.
