Only 18 days until Christmas

Is it really this close? Yes!!

Are you doing the Christmas parties and need some bubbles? Check out our carefully selected range of Champagnes, premium Aussie and New Zealand bubbles.

Doing a traditional Christmas dinner? Don't forget the Australian iconic sparkling red to go with the Turkey. We, in the shop, love the stuff so our range is full of wines covering from the classic through to the modern styles.

Looking for the special present to impress a boss/girlfriend/boyfriend (or the in-laws)? Maybe something from our range of older Australian classics would work well. Please come and talk to us - we can find you the perfect wine for any occasion. If you are unsure, then gift vouchers are always an option.

Wine by Sam

Wine by Sam is the new venture from the highly regarded, award winning winemaker Sam Plunkett. (For those who do not know Sam by name think of the brands: Plunkett Fowles, Ladies Who Shoot Their Lunch and Stone Dwellers).
Sam has just created a new label and these new wines are excellent.

Wine by Sam Savagnin 2012
Savagnin is a little known grape variety from north east of France.
This light, fresh, alive wine is full of mandarins and tangerines. Unwooded and very gluggable. Sam is pretty happy with it and we are too.

Wine by Sam Cabernet Shiraz 2010
The classic Australian blend that works just as well now as it did in the past.
Black pepper and blackberries are surrounded by soft tannins and a tangy acid.

Rocland Estate’s Chocolate Box and Duck Duck Goose (http://winebins.us4.list-manage1.com/track/click?u=6ebde3cc2c6b4225a19a717c7&id=c488318aa0&e=0b0627c805)
Friday 7 December 2012 5:00 – 8:00pm
After the success of many of these wines in the USA, Franc Rocca has decided to release them onto the local market for Australians to enjoy as well.
We are very pleased to have Franc Rocca from Rocland Estate in our Fine Wine Room to show off some of these award winning wines: Chocolate Box Moscato, Cabernet Sauvignon and Shiraz and Duck Duck Goose Sparkling Red. There might even be a couple of surprises as well!

Woodlands Wine – great wines from Margaret River (http://winebins.us4.list-manage1.com/track/click?u=6ebde3cc2c6b4225a19a717c7&id=5032ccd955&e=0b0627c805)
Friday 14 December 2012 5:00 – 8:00pm
Woodlands vineyard was established in 1973 by David & Heather Watson in the heart of Margaret River – Wilyabrup. They were one of the first five to plant vineyards in the Margaret River Wine Region. Their aim was always to create wines to emulate the great vineyards of Bordeaux. Amongst the cognoscenti, their wines are very highly regarded but not many people know them!
We are giving you the chance to taste these super wines including a couple of very special wines which are so limited that we are the only retailer in Melbourne to stock them.
We will have their Chardonnay and a selection of the Cabernet blends on tasting the Alma May Cabernet Sauvignon 2009, which has gained a “small” list of awards:
(91 - 93) Points- Neal Martin (The Wine Advocate)
97 Points - Ray Jordan
94 Points - James Suckling
93 Points - Lisa Perrotti-Brown (The Wine Advocate)
94 Points - James Suckling
A tasting not to be missed! Free.
