A wine lover’s special birthday coming up? A first home bought, or just want to treat yourself? We’ve put together a mixed case of four tip top reds that will make a fantastic base of your cellar, perfect for hiding away and pulling out 5-10 years down the line for a special occasion. These are wines that will age and improve over some years. Patience is a virtue, but trust us, it will pay off!
Calder Wine Co Petite Sirah 2015 - this is such tiny production, and such a special wine, but we just have to share it! Rutherford vineyard, plenty of violet and dried orange, deep and full bodied.
Big Basin Vineyards Gabilan Mountain GSM 2013 - Like some of the Rhone’s finest bottles, this Santa Cruz mountains blend of Grenache, Syrah, Mouvedre blend will age wonderfully.
Paserene Union 2015 - A South African Syrah led blend, featuring Carignan and Mouvedre from the fantastic 2015 vintage. With some years in bottle, this red will take on a seamless complexity between each cultivar.
Vignerons Schmolzer Brown Brunnen Pinot Noir 2017- just tiny quantities available, this Beechworth Pinot will develop all of those quintessential sous bois, tertiary characters that you can find in red Burgundy with age. The heartbreak grape at its best.
