Here you're looking at the cream of the cream. A Critic's Choice Award-winning McLaren Vale red wine made like it was royalty. Think hand-tended old vines, with grapes handpicked and sorted bunch by bunch, the wine naturally open-fermented, basket-pressed and stored in well seasoned first use French oak barriques from bespoke coopers.

It all reads like a wine wishlist, and exactly what you'd expect from a red that took out a gold medal at the UK Sommelier Wine Awards. But the appeal doesn't end there. This mystery Grenache was also made by an award winning winemaker who is one of our most popular producers (you'll know her wines). 

Previous vintages if this $80 red have all been 95 point scoring superstars and no doubt this will be too. If you love full bodied Grenache, then you can't miss this...

How's it taste?

The aroma has elementary fruits of raspberry and mulberry, but its site also offers some very unique and distinctive aromas of blackberry and intriguing notes of a spice and pepper, and the perfume of blueberries. The palate is cool, fresh and lightly, but persistently fruity and very zingy. The finish is fine, natural and unforced. This is a masterful essay in winemaking and sense of place. It’s a delicious, confident drink. The palate is initially intense sweet fruit of cherries and ripe raspberries, but balanced by a tangy acidity, spice from the French and American Oak and an integrated tannin structure. This is a masterful essay in winemaking and sense of place. It’s a delicious, confident drink. There is some cream and spice from the French Oak but it’s all about the pure fruit. Whole bunch extended maceration, integrated and balanced with fruit.

How was it made?

Produced from one of the most renowned McLaren Vale Vineyards whose clones and viticulture embody the very best in cutting edge but old school winemaking. Hand tended vines, whole-bunch fermented, basket pressed and stored in French oak barrels from bespoke coopers.

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.
