DESCRIPTION
  • A celebration of all things... well, a little alternative.

    Not a straightey-one-eighty in this here case, its all the stuff that doesn't get the kind of mainstream kudos that it richly deserves. Featuring Saperavi (originally from Georgia, now the Barossa strangely), Gruner Veltliner (Austria's favourite grape), Roussane (a varietal originating out of the Rhone), a Savagnin blend from the Margaret River, a Dolcetto (originally from Piedmont) and a Nero d'Avola (native to Sicily), there is not a Shiraz, Cabernet or Chardonnay to be seen... anywhere (well maybe just a little bit blended in one of the wines).

    Like all our mixed cases, we take the choices we make seriously, and this case is no different. Just try it. It's all we can suggest. Challenge yourself. Find a new muse. 

    Each case will contain one bottle of the following wines:

    2017 Flowstone Moonmilk Savagnin Blend (Margaret River) - 94 Points James Halliday
    2017 Unico Zelo Chery Fields Dolcetto (Clare Valley) - 90 Points Mike Bennie
    2017 Huber Terrassen Gruner Veltliner (Austria)  - 89 Points Wine Enthusiast
    2016 Michael Hall Roussane (Barossa Valley) - 95 Points James Halliday
    2016 Massena 'The Howling Dog' Saperavi (Barossa Valley) - 93 Points Campbell Mattinson
    2017 Sherrah Nero d'Avola  (McLaren Vale) - 90 Points Mike Bennie
