"375ml bottles work out as just over one glass of wine per person, which really is the perfect amount for mid week drinking and ideal if you’re having a glass by yourself". Andrew Graham.
Here's an offer you don't see every day. An Aussie Reds 6-pack containing only 375ml bottles. As we pointed out above with Andrew Graham's review, "375ml bottles work out as just over one glass of wine per person, which really is the perfect amount for mid week drinking and ideal if you’re having a glass by yourself". We reckon this is the best 6-pack offer of half bottles you'll see all year. There's a mixture of big brands and small producers.
This Aussie Red Half Bottle 6-pack contains one bottle each of the following wines in 375ml format:
Bleasdale Mulberry Tree Cabernet Sauvignon 2014
Destemmed and crushed to open fermenters, spending 11-15 days on skins, matured for 12 months in new (15%) and used French oak. Bright crimson-purple; you really have to wait until the aftertaste to understand and appreciate this wine: it's in that languorous, medium-bodied Langhorne Creek style, the tannins soft, the fruit fully ripe at 14%, the aftertaste revealing some black olive nuances, a faint edge to the tannins, and a whisk of oak that all add to the package. 92 Points. James Halliday
Dandelion Lionheart of the Barossa Shiraz 2017
Trophy - Syd International Wine Show 2019. " Hand-picked, crushed to open fermenters, 8 days on skins, matured for 18 months in mainly used French oak. High quality Barossa fruit, part grown by famous vignerons, floods the mouth, and the cool vintage has preserved the elegance and juicy highlights of the fruit. Oak has made a perfunctory contribution to a lovely wine. " 95 Points. James Halliday
Kooyong Estate Pinot Noir 2016
'There’s plenty of meat on this wine’s bones. It’s a spicy, stewy, chewy pinot noir with macerated cherry, woodsy spice, plum and vanilla flavours rolling through the palate. Weight, power, perfume and shape are all on the positive side of the ledger; finesse perhaps less so. Needless to say, pure drinking enjoyment can easily be found here.' 92 Points Campbell Mattinson, The Wine Front
Bleasdale Bremerview Shiraz 2017
Two Gold Medals. " Bleasdale over-delivers handsomely with this medium to full-bodied wine, investing it with the depth and complexity to justify cellaring. Brooding blackberry, licorice and plum flavours rest on a bed of savoury tannins that increase the mouthfeel and length." James Halliday Wine Companion
Battle of Bosworth Shiraz McLaren Vale 2016
"It takes time to open up but once it does it's a powerhouse. It's rich with flavours of blackberry, dark chocolate, loganberry and woodsy spice, and while it delivers plenty it does so in fresh, vibrant style. The word generosity springs readily to mind. Price, flavour and style all have ticks beside them. 93 Points." Campbell Mattinson for James Halliday Wine Companion
Wirra Wirra Church Block 2017
2017 Church Block is an eternal favourite of mine in both 100 Best and my other writing, too. In 2017 this is a feisty, naughty edgy wine with an unpredictable attitude, hinting that it is a non-conformist in this vintage. Just when you thought you could predict that Church Block would always taste the same (i.e. great), it has released a wine which shows that it can have fun, push the boundaries and tweak the taste buds like never before. Matthew Jukes, 100 Best Australian Wines 2019/20
