The Latest 2021 Super 12 Mixed Dozen
Three bottles each of:
MIXED REDS & WHITES
Eldredge Blue Chip Shiraz 2018
The colour is dark brick red with purple hues. The aromas are of spicy dark berry fruits with just a hint of toasty vanillan oak. The full-flavoured palate is awash with flavours of plums and black fruits, enhanced by silky fine grain tannins; the finish is rich and smooth. It is drinking beautifully now and will cellar well for a decade.
Primo Estate Zamberlan Cabernet Sangiovese 2019
A full bodied and rich red with succulent cassis fruit notes over chocolate and tobacco. The Sangiovese gives the wine a savoury finish with a burst of cherry fruit character. Incredibly intense and complex with rich, ripe dark berry fruit and a nutmeg spice. Dark chocolate from the Ripasso process is counterbalanced with a burst of maraschino cherry from the Sangiovese.
Robert Oatley Signature Reserve Chardonnay 2018
Premium parcels of grapes were specially selected from a range of sites across the Margaret River region, from Karridale in the south through to Wilyabrup in the north, to create a well balanced, medium weight style in the citrus mould. Matured for a short time in a variety of French oak barriques, twenty per cent new. We deliberately avoided the traditional secondary malolactic fermentation in order to retain the wine’s long fine acidity.
Rolf Binder Eden Valley Riesling 2019
Pale straw in colour, it is quite perfumed, with highlights of the lemon and lime indicative of this varietal. Expresses lovely rose floral & candied musk on the nose. Good acidity lifts the crisp, fresh palate, leaving a finish of lemon peel with zesty lime that lingers well on the palate.

Great wine box, already a fan of the two reds, enjoyed trying the white wines also. Craig & Jackie very helpful around the delivery dates and arrangements. Great service.
If you haven't subscribed or upgraded to the Super12 wine plan, I urge you to do it. It's a class above the Wizards. Having said that, I subscribe to both. Perfect.
I find this a great small scale specialist wine retailer run by people who are great to deal with - I would almost say nicer than their wines which in many ways once you have tasted their wines might be difficult to believe but you will find out if you give their wines a try. Give their quarterly Super 12 wines a go and do try their Eldredge wines if you want a single producer recommendation. Aussie wines aren't the most expensive on the planet but probable £ for £ are the best value..
We are regular recipients of these Super Red boxes and can confirm that this is indeed what they are! Always a good selection and occasionally a wine that we would not have selected ourselves from a wine list. They never send the same wine twice and in over a year of receiving the boxes, there was only ever one that was not to our taste, this was refunded without question. We hope to carry on with our delightful deliveries for many years to come
