About The Pack
This is the first time that Tonic Wines have released their full collection at the same time.
It's a rare chance to sample these unique expressions of Clare Valley and Adelaide Hills wines.
These wines are made in painfully small batches and sell out very shortly after release.
This pack won't be available for long. Stock up on these rare birds while you can.
2018 Tonic Wines Grenache
The same two vineyard sources combine in the 2018 release of Tonic Grenache.
The fruit is picked early precisely to maintain the beguiling floral aromatics that present in Clare Valley Grenache, in a drier vintage like 2018, this is even more important.
This is man-handled as little as possible on its way to bottle. A small amount of whole bunch in the ferment, only a gentle racking before bottling with a dash of sulphur. What you get is the very essence of Clare Grenache; brightly fruited, impossibly drinkable and more-ish to the last glass.
If you've never tried the tantalising wines styles from Tonic, or never had a lighter style of Grenache that has blown your socks off, there is no better way you could spend $30.Read more about 2018 Tonic Wines Grenache
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 Tonic Wines Nebbiolo
The Tonic wines are always in hot demand. Given the quality, the scarcity and the individuality of the whole package, it's no wonder.
Their third release of Nebbiolo is a stunner. The Bowe-Lees vineyard in the Adelaide Hills is one of the country's premiere sources for this much-loved variety, Dan and Glenn were lucky enough to get their hands on a tiny parcel once again in 2017.
This Nebbiolo spent 93 days on skins, before being aged in old oak and sent to bottle without fining or filtering.
It's Nebbiolo with no strings attached, just pure thirst-slaking exuberance oozing from every crevice. With only 50 dozen in existence, the Tonic Nebbiolo will not last long.Read more about 2017 Tonic Wines Nebbiolo
2018 Tonic Wines Chardonnay
Few wineries enjoy the feverish scramble for their new releases like Tonic Wines. And the fever is well deserved.
They make painfully small batches of wine and with the excellent quality and value over the last few vintages, it's no surprise.
This Chardonnay is sourced from the Bowe-Lees vineyard in Woodside, Adelaide Hills. The 2018 vintage spent 24 hours on its skins before being basket pressed to barrel where it lay untouched, unstirred on lees for around 9 months. No malo.
Simple yet incredibly successful winemaking. With only a small allocation available, this may be your last chance to try this fascinating take on Chardonnay. Don't hesitate.Read more about 2018 Tonic Wines Chardonnay
2018 Tonic Wines Rosé
Tantalising release of Rosé this year from the guys at Tonic Wines. Mataro and Grenache have handpicked from two separate vineyards in the Clare Valley.
The wine spent 5 months in old barrels before being sent to this very stylish bottle and sealed with a cork. It's savoury and structured and thirst crushing.
A dead serious Rosé tracking more toward Bandol than Provence in style.
It's a modern Australian Rosé for grown-ups.Read more about 2018 Tonic Wines Rosé
