Great value Aussie classics
Our Wine Champions tasters marvelled at the class on offer for the money, noting a ‘lovely balance between savoury oak and sweet, pure fruit’ that could pass for Burgundy. ‘Elegant, balanced and delicious.’
This cabernet, merlot, petit verdot and malbec blend is the flagship wine of Bleasdale and offers generous brooding aromas of black fruit, plum, earth and tobacco. The palate is rich and full, with blackberry, vanilla and liquorice. Complex, elegant, delicious Australian red and worth decanting for an hour prior to drinking.
Fresh, fruity and vibrant unoaked Australian chardonnay with notes of peach, lime and refreshing lemon zest. Charming, friendly and approachable wine which makes for the perfect all-occasion fridge-door bottle.
Pure, bright and crisp Australian pinot grigio with notes of apple, peach, pear and lime juice. A brilliantly refreshing and charmingly accessible white which punches above its weight and is a super choice for a party wine or just simple refreshment.
Arguably one of the best-value Clare Valley rieslings out there, this is aged at the winery before release and has developed wonderful depth and complexity as it has matured. The nose is classically styled, with orange peel, lemon curd and wet slate. The palate is dry and saline but with beeswax notes and great length. This Australian Riesling offers extraordinary bang for your buck.
Bold, generous and full-bodied Australian shiraz, which is bursting with flavours of black cherry, blueberry and blackberries. Made especially for us by multi-award-winning winemaker Paul Hotker of Bleasdale Vineyards.
Lemon-and-lime driven and intensely refreshing, this is a brilliant example of one of Australia's greatest wine styles, a taste found nowhere else in the world of wine.
Seasonal eating doesn't preclude a ray or two of sunshine. The black-cherry and mocha flavours of this fruity and full-bodied shiraz, generous on both nose and palate, will tame those good-for-you greens.
A great-value classic Australian blend, apple and peach-scented, dry, rounded, unoaked and crisp.
An Aussie classic and long-time favourite of Society members, Church Block is a full-bodied blend of cabernet, shiraz and merlot. If you have time, decanting this wine will really bring its blackberry and black-pepper character to life.
A superb example of affordable and generous Australian shiraz from McLaren Vale with lovely ripe juicy red fruit on the nose, with bramble and violets. The palate is full-bodied but fresh, with a silky texture and spice. Commended at the International Wine Challenge in 2021.
Yalumba are one of the great names of South Australian wine, and this example punches well above its weight. A deliciously generous and juicy cabernet sauvignon which is fresh but full-bodied, with a cassis-laden nose and a red and black-fruited palate.
