Cellar Door Calender of Events for 2014
Sat 6th & 7th September 12 noon– 5pm 2012 Special Release Merlot Revisited
As I’m sure you’re aware in the groovy lanes of the city, Merlot has seen a revival. Is this due to the fickle fashion side of the wine industry or the higher quality of wine being made from the Merlot grape? To consider this question and in response to Ben Thomas review click here (4.5stars) and the Trig family’s requests we are revisiting our Special Release Merlot 2012.
It’s 9 years since the last Wedgetail Merlot release and this 2012 Special Release has enchanting aromas that jump straight at you from the glass, the mouth feel is rich but this Bordeaux grape gives a seductive softness and a long finish that equates to satisfaction with a smile from your lips.
To maintain this smile for this weekend and for our mailing list clients only we are offering our rare Merlot at a Special Price; RRP is $45.00 for this weekend for purchases of 6 or more bottles you pay $35.00
To accompany the Merlot tasting at Cellar door we will feature Babka’s popular beef pie, and our famous cheese platter will also be available

Our Latest News Ben Thomas Reviews the Single Vineyard Shiraz 2011 The Weekly Review 4 ½ / 5 Edgy, cool-climate Shiraz may not be to everyone’s taste, but here’s a good example. Only 150 cases of this wine, which was matured in 50 per cent new oak, were made. Perfumedand funky, cherry, redcurrant, stalky, sappy, meaty aromas are a delight. A silky smooth texture – it’s satin-like – bright acid and fine tannins support sweet and sour flavours of cherry, beetroot, cranberry, loam and spice. For the record, this is a style I love. Food match Chateaubriand

Magic occurs in bottles like it does around people. In this case naturally forming bubbles gather in a bottle of chardonnay forming a bunch of grapes, the molecular expression was stronger than the physical composition.
