About The Pack
Off the back of the insane popularity of our Winter Warmers Pack, check out this new premium option!

Saving $20 on the pack, these six wines will keep you sipping in style for the rest of the Winter months.
2018 Dr. Edge Tasmania Pinot Noir
One of Tasmania's most dynamic winemakers in full flight here. An electric release of Pinot Noir from our most Southern state.
The Dr. Edge Tasmanian Pinot Noir is made by Peter Dredge, the winemaker at Meadowbank in the Derwent Valley.
This wine is made from fruit from across the Apple Isle. Peter has captured the lightness and purity of Tasmanian Pinot Noir beautifully here in the 2018 release.
This is a rockstar wine from one of Australia's most exciting young producers.Read more about 2018 Dr. Edge Tasmania Pinot Noir
2017 Mount Mary Reflexion Cabernet Franc
The Reflexion wines of Mount Mary aren't made every year. On occasion it's a label that houses declassified fruit, however here it stands as a home for an interesting stand alone wine from the 2017 vintage.
This Cabernet Franc is from younger vines as part of the rootstock replanting project underway at Mount Mary. The fruit was earmarked for Quintet but winemaker Sam Middleton felt it didn't quite fit and he liked it just on its own.
There's a splash of Merlot in the final blend for a little more flesh, but what you get in the end is an extrodinarily aromatic, vibrant example of Franc which is appealing from the get go. Drink this while you wait for Quintet to mature, would be our suggestion.Read more about 2017 Mount Mary Reflexion Cabernet Franc
2018 Tonic Wines Mataro
This is Clare Valley Mataro at it's most delectable and delicious.
This comes from relatively young Mataro vines (19 years of age) in the Armagh area of the Clare Valley. All the fruit was hand-picked with 35% whole bunches included.
It was foot-stomped, naturally fermented and then basket pressed into old French oak barrels. It was unfined and unfiltered. As Tonic put it, "No fining, no filtration, just disco..."
This is one of the Clare Valley's most charming versions of Mataro and is excellent value for a wine of such quality and interest.
Just 195 dozen made. Giddy up!Read more about 2018 Tonic Wines Mataro
2017 Ravensworth Nebbiolo
Bryan Martin's winemaking is as refined as it is original, and this Nebbiolo is a wonderful example of what his colourful drops are all about.
Only the fourth ever release of the wine, this comes from the near-perfect 2017 vintage in the Hilltops region, and it looks fantastic. Bryan has uses his large format Stockinger barrels for maturation, the bigger wood making a big difference in the final product. A sort of old-world meets new-world take on this iconic Italian variety.
It will be long-lived in the cellar and matches beautifully with a wide range of foods, but it's equally enjoyable to knock back now. If you're a Nebbiolo admirer then you'll love this, and if you're new to the variety then this is a quality place to start.Read more about 2017 Ravensworth Nebbiolo
2017 Yangarra Old Vine Grenache
Yangarra is arguably Australia's finest producer of Grenache, and this stunning wine is surely one of their finest (and best value) releases yet.
Their remarkable, certified biodynamic vineyard in the higher reaches of McLaren Vale produces a fleet of awe-inspiring Grenache, with this 'Old Vine' release being the heart and soul of the lineup.
The fruit comes from 70-year-old, non-irrigated bush vines, with Yangarra's incredible winery doing its bit to maintain all the purity of fruit and natural vineyard character in the wine. It's not jubey and juicy, nor is it rich and inky - this is an emphatically perfumed, seriously structured, utterly delicious Grenache that will only improve with time in the cellar.
97 points from James Halliday and just a no-brainer for any Grenache lover.Read more about 2017 Yangarra Old Vine Grenache
2018 Mada Wines Shiraz
Hamish Young's Mada Shiraz is a very seductive wine.
The fruit comes from three vineyards in the Murrumbateman area, one providing incredible perfume, the other two contributing underlying power.
A third of the fruit was fermented as whole bunches, some saw time in ceramic egg to maintain freshness, and only 15% new oak used in the maturation of the wine.
This is the essence of silky, slippery Canberra Shiraz. A wine that oozes sex appeal. Hamish has not put a foot wrong since starting his own label in 2016, and this gorgeous Shiraz is yet another notch in his belt.Read more about 2018 Mada Wines Shiraz
