2007 Governors Bay Marlborough Sauvignon Blanc

WAS $155.00 NOW ONLY $119.00

A GREAT NEW SAUVIGNON BLANC FROM NEW ZEALAND

Jack's Comments: Fantastic flavour with that intense passion fruit and tropical fruit flavours: nice and clean and refreshing and without doubt one of the best value Sauvignon Blanc that we have available in our range. This wine drinks as well as some of the other dearer wines that we have, I hope that you enjoy this wine as much as I have.


Jack's Price $9.92 / $119.00
RRP $16.99 / $203.99


2007 Jamiesons Run Sauvignon Blanc Semillon

WAS $132.00 NOW ONLY $110.00

WELL KNOWN AND TRUSTED COMMERCIAL BRAND
New vintage and blend from powerhouse winery!

Jack's Comments: This is just in and it was pretty impressive. It is dominated with Sauvignon Blanc fruit and balanced off well with the Semillion. It is showing all the tropical fruit of Sauvignon Blanc with passionfruit. A citrus taste hits mid palate and so does the semillon showing grassy characters. It has a nice mix of acid making it a crisp refreshing wine. It is value for money and will not disappoint from this well known brand.

2005 De Bortoli Regional Classic Heathcote Shiraz

WAS $239.00 NOW ONLY $110.00

SUPER DEAL ON THIS HEATHCOTE WINE

Jack's Comments: This is a new wine we came across and the deal was to good to pass up. This is a very tidy Heathcote Shiraz which is drinking exceptionally well. As typical of the region it has plenty of fruit structure with some nice earthy flavours, the tannins are not as intense as I thought they would be. At the end of the palate you get touches of young green fruit which I believe will blossom in the next year or two into a really good wine. You will not find a Heathcote Shiraz at a deal like this one, so don't miss out on this massive special.

Winemaker's Comments: This 2005 Shiraz has great depth of fruit and integrated tannins, with length and weight of rich fruit and savoury flavours entwined with balanced acidity. Minimal handling was adopted to preserve natural fruit flavour. Enjoy now or cellar up to 8 years.

2005 Dolphin Cove Shiraz

WAS $119.00 NOW ONLY $59.00

SOFT AND EASY TO DRINK - under 1/2 price

Jack's Comments: Delicate flavours with good balance of fruit and tannins; Soft and easy to drink and showing a nice bit of age on this wine already.

Winemaker's Comments: Bright garnet red colour. Ripe, exotic stewed plum and pepper supported by nice integrated smokey oak. Rich, ripe generous layers of dark berry fruits set against well intergrated oak and soft fine grained tannins. Suited to lamb, beef and red game meats.

2005 Lake Breeze Bernoota Shiraz Cabernet

WAS $227.88 NOW ONLY $180.00

CLASSIC AUSSIE BLEND
Best buy red under $20

Jack's Comments: A big wine bursting with great chocolate and mint flavors balanced with great earthy flavors. The oak is well intergrated and it leads to a beautiful drop. One of the best wines I have tasted for under $20. It has cleaned up a heap of awards and I now know why. A great buy!


Jack's Price $15.00 / $180.00
RRP $24.99 / $299.88


2006 Warburn Stephendale Shiraz

WAS $119.88 NOW ONLY $89.00

LOVELY BALANCE WITH FLAVOUR
Halliday top 100 - 90 points

Jack's Comments: When I first tasted this wine it was just bottled and I suspect suffering from bottle shock and though it came across as good wine it was soft. Well it is amazing how a little time has transformed this wine into an absolute gem, it has filled out with lovely dark cherry flavours; this is a fantastic wine for the price but give it a glass to show its full potential. Lovely intense warm flavours that fill your mouth and balanced and integrated.
