Expert Reviews

93 Points - Sam Kim - Wine OrbitThis brilliantly priced red shows perfumed aromas of black/blueberry, raspberry, toasted nut and warm spice on the nose, leading to a succulent palate that is plump and fleshy. It is brightly fruited and smooth with layers of silky texture, finishing persistent and satisfying.
91 Points - James Halliday - Halliday's Wine CompanionFrom McLaren Vale and Padthaway, co-fermented with 4% viognier. The colour is as bright as the co-fermentation would suggest, the bouquet likewise heightened. The wine is only medium-bodied, yet both the wealth of black berry fruit and the texture are complex, spicy flavours on the finish and aftertaste.

How's it taste?

The nose is vibrant and lifted with red cherry and plum fruit and hints of licquorice and vanilla spice. Generously loaded with dark fruits, the palate is balanced by fine, supple tannins and sweet spice. A soft, round shiraz with a satisfying fruit length.

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. What we do is 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 cheaper under it's original label, so they either come up with a new label just for us, or we agree not to advertise the original brand (hence the "Mystery"). The end result is the same wine, but at fantastic bargain prices! The ethos with these wines is simple: - The original wine must always be a bottled and labeled product (we'll never sell cleanskins). - 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. - The intention is for bargains. Same wine, hidden label, cheaper result.
