You'll find wines from icons, rising stars and cult figures in the world of wine. No matter what your preference, we hope you fall in love with these wines just as much as we have.

The pack will be updated on the first of every month. Your first pack will be shipped the next business day following your subscription. Choose your frequency, skip or cancel at any time (we'll send you a reminder before each delivery) - it's just that easy.

Our January Pack includes:

2018 Ashton Hills Piccadilly Valley Pinot Noir

The Piccadilly Valley Pinot Noir is blended for approachability.

This is a blend of Pinot Noir fruit from three vineyards in the Adelaide Hills. It offers the drinker a snapshot of the Adelaide Hills vintage and drinks beautifully from day one. This release shows the classic house style of Ashton Hills, firm, structural and savoury though still ready to drink.

The Piccadilly Valley is the coolest sub-region in the Adelaide Hills, ideal for producing a more delicate style of Pinot Noir. In the hands of the region's finest Pinot producer, fruit from this iconic region sings.

2019 Unico Zelo Pipe Dream Nero d'Avola

Ask Unico Zelo winemaker Brendan Carter the reason for the name 'Pipe Dream' for this wine and he chuckles, explaining that he has a pipe dream that one day Nero d'Avola will be planted more widely in Australian than Shiraz.

Maybe one day!

This wine is all about exploring what Nero can do from a cooler climate in the Adelaide Hills (Birdwood specifically) as opposed to its usual warmer Aussie homes of Heathcote, McLaren Vale and Riverland.

The resulting wine is impressive, pulsating with both brightness and concentration, whilst never losing its natural acidity.

Tiny quantities made but absolutely delicious!

2018 Vinteloper Touriga Nacional

Dave Bowley is doing some very good things out of his Adelaide Hills winery.

This Touriga Nacional is one of those things. It is grown in the warm, rich soils of Langhorne Creek, the climate ideally suited to this hero Portuguese variety. Bowley's is a modern, bright, beautifully perfumed version of the grape and has a more-ish quality that makes it near impossible to put down.

If you've never met this unique Portuguese variety, this is one of the most approachable and interesting versions that we have seen.

2018 Finca La Florencia Malbec

Big red lovers, you're on to a winner here.

This is an opulent, ultra-smooth Malbec from a vineyard almost 1000m above sea level in the iconic region of Mendoza.

An Italian family from Piedmonte is behind the wine. Having immigrated to the region in the 19th century, the Cassones have established a modern premium winery in the Drummond area in the south-west of the region.

Combining this great old vine fruit with modern, polished winemaking techniques allows current owner Eduardo Cassone to produce powerful yet approachable wines that do great justice to the region.

2019 Forlorn Hope Kurocks Grenache

The wines from the hands of Matthew Rorick have a V8 engine in a sports car frame.

His second foray into the world of Barossa Valley reds has produced a red wine of raw magnetism. This is old vine Grenache from old dry-grown vines - this is the essence of the Barossa Valley mainlined through one of the USA's cult winemaking stars.

There's a deftness to the wine. It's tight and bright and crunchy, Barossan fruit with an energy that tugs you back to the glass.

The asking price is ludicrous. Jump quick if you want to catch this rare bird before it flies the coup.

2018 Ravensworth Shiraz Viognier

The Ravensworth Shiraz Viognier has become one of the most sought after wines in Canberra, owner/winemaker Bryan Martin now consistently producing a wine of glorious complexity from his home grown fruit.

Bryan's Shiraz is Northern Rhone Valley inspired, with a splash of co-fermented Viognier adding perfume and mouthfeel to what is a remarkable Shiraz. Given Bryan Martin's day-job as assistant winemaker at Clonakilla where he, alongside Tim Kirk, produces Australia's foremost Shiraz Viognier, it comes as no surprise to see this wine reach such great heights.

The 2018 looks sensational once again. If you fancy cool climate Shiraz then this is simply a must for your cellar and/or dinner table. Exceptional value.

splendid first wine in top drop red six-pack

The first wine we tried in this six pack, the 2017 Pittnauer Pitti Red, was really a knockout. If the rest of the six-pack lives up to this initial bottle, we'll be delighted (and we might even increase the frequency of receiving these "top drop" red sixes).
