Our exclusive 'Blind Spot' range is sourced from one of Australia's leading winemakers, Mac Forbes. With a tiny premium production and a dedicated following, Mac's star continues to rise and due to his excellent reputation, he has contacts all over Australia.
It's through these connections that he can tip us off about small-batch special parcels of wine that might otherwise be blended away into anonymity. We get first refusal, and the best wines are bottled under the Blind Spot label.
For members, that means an ever-changing range of delicious, authentic expressions of Australia's best regions at significantly reduced prices. I'm thrilled to introduce you to the current crop of finds and hope you'll give them a try!
Including two new arrivals from Australia's 'Little Italy'
The King Valley is a little slice of Italy in the Aussie state of Victoria, and a number of the Italian families who settled there over the years brought wine with them. Returning to the Blind Spot range after a couple of years' absence, the 2019 King Valley Garganega is a star, and we've also released a brand-new bottling of delicious dolcetto.
Buyer for Australia
Blind Spot King Valley Garganega 2019
This grape is mostly found in northern Italy, such as Soave, but thrives here, offering bags of personality, spice and enticing stone-fruit flavours.
Blind Spot King Valley Dolcetto 2019
The dolcetto variety of Piedmont has also found a home from home here. This is a prime example of the grape, with a full, juicy flavour of red and black fruit and a touch of savoury black olive. Don't miss it.
