About The Pack

Shiraz is our most famous vinous export - it's what we're known for and we do it oh so well.

From the robust, concentrated wines of the South Australia to the more elegant, spicy examples from cooler regions, Shiraz just loves it here.

Here are six excellent every-day drinking Shiraz for a bargain price.

You will cover a wide range of regions, styles and price points all from the comfort of your home. At this price, you won't find a better mix of Aussie Shiraz anywhere in the country.

2019 Bondar Violet Hour Shiraz

The name 'Violet Hour' refers to the fading light owners Andre Bondar and Selina Kelly saw on the horizon as they picked the last bunches of Shiraz for their first ever release, the 2012 edition of this wine. A violet sky, a beautiful wine, and a new future ahead for the couple and their vines.

The Violet hour tastes as stylish as it looks, it hits that sweet-spot for all red wine lovers - a combination of elegance and power.

The pedigree of the McLaren Vale vineyard is second to none - it's one of the most respected sites in McLaren Vale where Seaview and Blewitt Springs meet. You get the lively, bright blue fruits of the sandy soils of Blewitt Springs with the power and structure of the Seaview terroir. It's a winning combination. The quality of the Shiraz speaks for itself.

Put simply, if you like McLaren Vale Shiraz with a fresh face - this is a must buy.

2017 Michael Hall Sang de Pigeon Shiraz

95 points - James Halliday

The name Sang de Pigeon is drawn from winemaker Michael Hall's time as a jewellery valuer. Meaning "Blood of the Pidgeon", this title was given to only the reddest of rubies in the trade.

Here, Michael uses it to describe the fine fruit selected for this lovely Shiraz. This is predominantly sourced from the Marananga sub-region of the Barossa Valley with 15% of the fruit coming from the Flaxmans Valley and the Adelaide Hills.

It's made with Michael's signature deft touch resulting in a robust yet sleek red with 95 points from David Bicknell. All in all, it's a classy and great value version of Shiraz from this famous region.

2018 Swinney Frankland River Syrah

A fantastic example of Syrah here from the Swinney family and the crack team of Rob Mann and Lee Haselgrove.

While Western Australian Cabernet Sauvignon gets the lion's share of attention, Shiraz when grown in the right spot can excel, particularly when grown and tended by someone as knowledgeable as Lee Haselgrove.

This is a brilliant Syrah. It's spicy, intense and powerful, ready to drink now or in a decade's time. Rob Mann has brought a wealth of experience to the Swinney operation since coming on as winemaker in 2018 and every ounce of his skill is on show here.

As Campbell Mattinson said in his 95 point review, it's quite simply "Gorgeous."

2018 Mac Forbes Yarra Valley Syrah

This is the third release of the Mac Forbes Yarra Valley Syrah.

Mac has experimented with Syrah for a few years now, looking for a lighter, more fine boned version of the variety under his 'EB' range. In 2018, the warmer conditions offered fruit ripeness with plenty of flavour from the fruit grown on his home block near Healesville.

This Syrah is filled with spice and plenty of juicy fruit. It sits well and truly in the cool-climate style, however, there is no shortage of flavour.

Lovers of the spicy side of Syrah will find plenty of joy here.

Very high quality Yarra Syrah for a modest price.

2018 De Iuliis LDR Shiraz Touriga

Trophy - Best Other Red - Hunter Valley Wine Show

There is a great sense of tradition and heritage in the Hunter Valley which is quite romantic, but Mike De Iuliis, along with some of his contemporaries are doing great things to advance the local industry into uncharted waters.

The LDR (Lovedale Road) Shiraz Touriga is a blend of Shiraz fruit sourced from their iconic Lovedale Road vineyard, planted by Joss De Iuliss in 1990 and 20% Touriga Nacional (a Portuguese variety, traditionally used in fortified wines) which Mike asked Joss to plant after being inspired by an SA winemaker friend’s use of the variety.

This wine just works. The earthy/red fruit characters of Hunter Shiraz meets the floral aromatics and structure of Touriga Nacional. Looking for a different red that still feels familiar? Try the LDR, it’s an absolute home run from Mike, and we hope we see more like it!

2019 Adelina Shiraz Mataro

"This has lots going for it."
- Mike Bennie (The Wine Front)


The Adelina Shiraz Mataro showcases the exquisite old vine Clare Valley fruit that Jen Gardner and Col McBryde have at their disposal.

Over half of the fruit is sourced from vineyards 100+ years old, these are some of the Clare Valley's most precious and respected vineyards.

The wine itself is treated with the typical Adelina care: wild ferments, gentle handling, and this year a portion fermented in concrete. This is yet another remarkable release, delivering a flavour-packed yet elegant representation of old-vine Clare Valley fruit.

As a complete package, this is unbeatable value and one of the best pound-for-pound reds in the Clare Valley.

Can coupons and discounts be stacked? No, only one discount or coupon can be applied to an order at once.

I am trying to add more of a wine to my cart but it won’t let me? This means we are running low on stock of that wine.
