There's a famous old saying that great wine is made in the vineyard. Cliche, sure, but to make a magnificent product, you need to start with the best grapes you can find.

Which brings us nicely to this 2016 Mystery Old Vine McLaren Vale Shiraz.

This red comes from a label you might not have heard of - it's a small, boutique producer with just a handful of wines to their name. But there's more to the story here, as the two vineyards behind the label provide grapes that go into some of McLaren Vale's most famous wines. Names you'll know, selling for top dollar.

The family, however, keep a small volume of fruit back for their own label - and the wines are spectacular.

Look only at this Shiraz for evidence. Made from a vineyard dating back to the mid 1920s, it's a beauty. A deep, poweful McLaren Vale red that spent over 24 months in barrel, and is concentrated, mouthfilling and full-bodied, yet with this grace and polish. Little wonder James Halliday doled out 95 points for it.

These same grapes go into $100 bottles of Shiraz, which makes the $35 winery asking price for this red seem absurd. But what's absurd is that, because we're selling it as a mystery wine, you can take some home for a fraction of that amount.

Who made it?

Our Mystery Wineries are found right around the country, some of which you will know very well. Many of our Mystery Wines are already well known to wine buyers and sell for much higher prices under their own label. But winemakers need to eat, and when it comes time to find space for a new vintage, they naturally want to sell whatever they can quickly. Which is where we come in. We agree to take a few cases of said wine in exchange for a better price (so we can sell it cheaper). The condition being that the wine can't be sold under it's original label (hence the "Mystery"). The end result is the same wine, but at fantastic bargain prices! Our Mystery Wines are all covered by our full money back guarantee, purely because we know the vino in the bottle is good quality. We'll never sell below par, 'out of condition' wines. Ever. It's simple, same wine, hidden label, cheaper result.

I am absolutely wine obsessed and I love nothing better than sharing that obsession with others. I love choosing great bottles from all through the quality spectrum. From $10 quaffers through to truly monumental $100 bottles of liquid art, I love introducing friends, family and our customers to world beating wines at all price points. Below, you’ll find some wines I think you’ll really love.
