Dear Wine Lover,
It has been a busy few months since our last newsletter, inclusive of taking a short break in China. It was certainly a very interesting trip to see some famous spots, although it was a lot harder to find some quality Australian wine than I had expected.
It certainly goes to show how spoilt we are for choice here!
Speaking of quality wines, we still have some of the Gold Medal winning Prestige Wine 6 packs available at $90, as well as a brand new mixed dozen showcasing some different South Australian wine styles and regions.
In our latest mix, we have included four excellent wines from Kilikanoon Wines which has received high praise from some of the world’s most respected wine critics. James Halliday’s Australian Wine
Companion named Kilikanoon ‘Winery of the Year’ in 2013 and in 2014 winemaker and owner Kevin Mitchell was inducted into the inaugural Clare Valley Hall of Fame as Winemaker of the Year. There are also three wines from the family owned Maxwell of McLaren Vale stable, who are most famous as a large producer of Mead and have also been making some excellent table wines since 1979.
