  • 2015 Viña Alberdi Reserva, La Rioja Alta – MagnumRed Wine

    2015 Viña Alberdi Reserva, La Rioja Alta – Magnum


    The 2015 Viña Alberdi Reserva is 100% Tempranillo from vineyards that are 40years old and at a high altitude of 500-600 metres above sea level.

    In the glass, it has an intense, medium-high depth, ruby-red; clean and bright. The nose particularly stands for its red fruit (raspberries, wild strawberries and red plums), which give way to notes of vanilla, nutmeg, caramel and cedar from barrel ageing. Flavour-packed, balanced and very fresh, with smooth, friendly tannins. Harmonious, well-balanced finish, with a pleasant final freshness that invites you to continue enjoying this vintage for years to come.

    This wine stands out for its food-pairing versatility. It is the ideal companion to appetizers, snacks and barbecues, perfect with rice, pasta and creams, and great with lightly-grilled meat and fish.

  • 2014 The Florita Riesling, Jim Barry – Magnum Wine Republic Heros White Wine

    2014 The Florita Riesling, Jim Barry – Magnum


    There is nothing quite like a magnum for sharing and this iconic 2014 ‘The Florita’ Riesling from Jim Barry is just the ticket.

    This magnificent wine opens in the glass with delicate floral aromas of citrus blossom, rose water, lime citrus and hints of green pear.  A wine of immense drive and purity.  It shows the
    hallmarks of a youthful but restrained Florita with a promise of more to come. Lime citrus is dominant with elements of pear and rose water with long lingering acidity.
    A magnificent benchmark dry Riesling to be enjoyed now or with careful cellaring for the next ten years.

    The Florita Story – It starts in 1946, just after the war, when Leo Buring bought land at Watervale and planted Pedro Ximénez for sherry – the preferred wine of Australians at the time. He named the vineyard Florita, which is Spanish for ‘little flower’ – a reference to the sherry flor (or flower), the film of yeast that covers the dry flor sherry as it matures in its ullaged casks.
    Public tastes shifted, table wine became fashionable, and in 1962 Buring’s winemaker John Vickery began to remove PX and plant Riesling. “He started to make Riesling (wine), which began to be seen as the future of Australian white wine,” says Barry. Indeed, Vickery and the Leo Buring brand became almost synonymous with Riesling.

    “In 1986 Philip Morris (the tobacco company which owned the Leo Buring brand at the time) had six years supply of Riesling in its cellars, and no-one was drinking it – Chardonnay was the new fashion. They decided to sell the Florita vineyard.   My brothers and I went to the auction. I was 24.  Mum said ‘You’re not allowed to buy it’. She said we already had plenty of vineyards. We told Dad he’d better buy it, and that would let us off the hook.  Southcorp owned the Florita trademark at the time, and although the Barrys began using the grapes immediately, they couldn’t use the name.
    “I had to wait eight years until the registration period was up, but then Southcorp renewed it for another 10 years, so I had to wait 18 years all told, and I registered the name Florita two days after it lapsed.

    Eighteen years is a long time to wait for a drink.”

  • 2011 Chardonnay, Heytesbury, Vasse Felix Wine Republic Heros

    2011 Chardonnay, Heytesbury, Vasse Felix


    Heytesbury Chardonnay is a barrel selection of the very best Chardonnay parcels from each vintage.  This 2011 was fermented entirely with wild yeasts and matured in French oak barriques with battonage for nine months.

    Age has given a beautiful golden colour to the wine with a nose that sings!  With aromas of fragrant pineapple and lemon freshness, the nose gently releases its cache of wild barrel ferment characters. Crusty apple pie, pretty lavender, struck stone flintiness, plus subtle lamb fat and bay leaf provide shadow and depth to the bright citrus that shines from the core.  The palate is intricate, luscious and mouth-watering, reflecting pineapple, custard apple and water chestnut, lightly spiced with cloves, vanillin oak and almond biscuit flavours. Opens with juicy fruit and evolves to a tight acid-drying finish, that carries the pristine and complex flavours for remarkable length.

The nose is intense, wide, very elegant and persistent with scents of honey and country flowers.

  • 2002 Shiraz, Charles Melton – Magnum Wine Republic Heros Red Wine

    2002 Shiraz, Charles Melton – Magnum


    Charlie Melton makes great Shiraz, one that combines the attributes of Barossa grown dry-farmed Shiraz; richness and intensity of flavour which, when combined with Charlie’s winemaking skills is balanced by perfume and elegance. These wines will then possess that essential grace and balance when young that, after many years of cellaring will translate into complexity and smoothness.

    This 2002 is made from gnarled old Shiraz vines of up to 100+ years old.  In the glass, the wine displays aromas of ripe dark plum, blackberry, some meaty earth like characters, liquorice and spice showing good complexity and intensity. Rich and opulently textured the palate delivers mouth-filling flavours of ripe blackberry, liquorice and spice with a light earthy leather-like overlay. Velvet smooth tannins with long blackberry, liquorice, leather and spice aftertaste.

  • 1999 Barbaresco Tenuta Roncaglie, Poderi Colla – MagnumRed Wine

    1999 Barbaresco Tenuta Roncaglie, Poderi Colla – Magnum


    Since 1880 the Roncaglie cru has been recognised as one of the best and most important vineyards for Barbaresco production. Poderi Colla’s Tenuta Roncaglia estate has eight hectares of Nebbiolo under vine, at an altitude of 240-280 metres and benefiting from a southern exposure. This enables the vines to produce clean, ripe fruit that’s hand-picked before being transported to Poderi Colla’s winery in Cascine Drago for vinification and maturation. Tenuta Roncaglia’s wines are some of the finest examples of Barbaresco around.

    This is a maturing magnum of Colla’s magnificent Tenuta Roncaglie Barbaresco.   Reaching its peak this wine has a blockbuster nose and powerful complex palate with immense structure and grip.   This is Nebbiolo at its finest – in a magnum!

  • 2015 Viña Ardanza Reserva, La Rioja Alta  *Jeroboam Gift Box* Wine Republic Heros Red Wine

    2015 Viña Ardanza Reserva, La Rioja Alta *Jeroboam Gift Box*


    A magnificent Jeroboam (3L) of 2015 Viña Ardanza Reserva packed in a beautiful Gift Box.

    La Rioja Alta’s Viña Ardanza Reserva is one of the finest Reserva’s available and a benchmark for the region.  Every vintage is outstanding and never fails to elicit a smile upon drinking.    La Rioja Alta is the gold standard for traditional bodegas: a winery that ages their wines the old-fashioned way, meaning three years in barrel with two rackings a year, followed by three years in bottle.

    The 2015 comprises 78% Tempranillo from Fuenmayor and Cenicero blended together with 22% Garnacha from the famous ‘La Pedriza’ vineyard in Tudelilla.

    “The nose stands out for its power, a highly complex blend of spicy and balsamic aromas of sweet liquorice, patisserie, vanilla, cinnamon, cocoa, coffee and nutmeg, and notes of stewed red fruits. Outstanding balance, pleasant freshness and great structure in the mouth, with supple, round tannins. Very pleasant mouthfeel. An ample aftertaste of spicy notes, sweet liquorice and ripe fruit makes Viña Ardanza 2015 a timeless wine, with tremendous laying-down potential and one of the best vintages of the XXI.” Head winemaker – Julio Saénz

  • 2005 Cabernet Sauvignon Gold Reserve, Carmen – 3000ml/JeroboamRed Wine

    2005 Cabernet Sauvignon Gold Reserve, Carmen – 3000ml/Jeroboam


    This single-vineyard, ultra-premium, ultra-rare jeroboam of Vina Carmen’s Gold Reserve Cabernet Sauvignon was imported by us many years ago along with a jeroboam of 2004 and has with its sibling been in our cellars ever since.   Yes, the label is slightly battered but the levels are perfect and it is a magnificent celebration drink!    As with all top end Cabernet Sauvignon it has the ability to age very well and the winemaker suggested a maturity date of 2025 for this vintage and wine.  The fact it is a Jeroboam should add another 5 years to that!    We recently opened a magnum of both the 2004 & 2005 and the wines were sensational.

    This 2005 is brimming with ripe berries, espresso, chocolate syrup and cassis with sweet, exotic spice aromas. Velvety on the palate with dense berry and mocha flavours, the tannins are powerful but ripe and the linger is substantial.  A family celebration bottle if ever there was!

  • 2012 ‘The Caley’ Cabernet & Shiraz, Yalumba – Magnum Wine Republic Heros Red Wine

    2012 ‘The Caley’ Cabernet & Shiraz, Yalumba – Magnum


    This is the first vintage of Yalumba’s Cabernet/Shiraz-based flagship wine, The Caley.  Named after Fred Caley Smith, grandson of Yalumba founder Samuel Smith, who was a horticulturist that had a profound impact on the development of Yalumba’s vineyards. In the early 1890’s he spent 18 months trekking across the USA, Britain, Europe, the Middle East, India and Sri Lanka, observing and reporting on scientific and horticultural developments. His detailed letters, sent home every few days, underpinned the way the vineyards were managed and laid the foundations of sustainable viticulture at Yalumba today.

    At the time of blending, the winemaking team made the following tasting notes … Deep garnet red in colour, fruit is at the core of the bouquet, all red and black currants – overlaid with savoury herbs, green spices, cedar and pipe tobacco. The palate is of sophisticated precision with a refined line. Long and textured it captures the concentrated flavours and presents them with a silken grace. Under all that supple, fleshy muscle, the wine has a strong spine, structured to last and last.

    The Caley has been sourced from three outstanding vineyards of the Coonawarra and Barossa regions. The Ming D block of the Yalumba Coonawarra vineyard provides 52% of the Cabernet Sauvignon of the blend. This 2.7ha plot was planted in 1992 with two clones of Cabernet Sauvignon selected for structure and depth of flavour. This block differs from the ubiquitous Coonawarra terroir, with a higher content of clay than the other blocks on The Menzies Estate. The Shiraz is sourced from the Burgemeister “Linke Block” between Nuriootpa and Angaston. Planted in 1901, these Shiraz vines run east-west and are on a single wire trellis. The soil is a red-brown earth in the Light Pass loamy fine sand family. There is also a component that comes from the 1971 Yalumba Horseshoe Block in Eden Valley.
