Winter has arrived. Anyone that is a Game of Thrones fan, knows a cold snap when it arrives…it requires a fire, rugs, some good hearty food and a red wine!
As the colder weather hits Perth, the warmth and richness of Cabernet is brought to the forefront of our minds. The ‘King of Grapes’ just belongs in Western Australia and you need not look further to find some of the best examples than our doorstep.
Every June long weekend one of our favourite wineries, Fraser Gallop, holds their annual ‘Barrell Room Tasting’, where you can taste not only the current vintages but back vintages of most of their wines, particularly the high end stuff. This is a super opportunity to experience the older vintages and see how wines evolve over time. Cabernet is one of our favourite varietals, yet we also believe that to get the best out of it, we must give it time to find itself. Like any young King, it needs to grow and mature. The best will do this gracefully, over many years and richly reward any of its patrons that are willing to be a little patient.
To celebrate the impending Winter and start you on the right track, we’ve put together some of our current favourites, just for you.
2015 Fraser Gallop ‘Parterre’ Cabernet Sauvignon
$41.95 per bottle ($50 RRP) - BUY HERE
Following a long line of exceptional Cabernet, the 2015 vintage produced a wine that was more typical of Cabernet’s. while the 2014 was upfront and very approachable young, the 2015 clearly needed a little more time. That time has now passed and this wine is ready to rock! With a very small production in 2015 and 2016, Fraser Gallop will likely be skipping forward 3 vintages in the space of a year and gone will be the days where the aging of this wine was partly done for you. This is the last chance to secure this wine and anyone that buys this vintage, will have first dibs on the 2016 (smaller amounts available) when it releases in the near future.
2016 Amelia Park Reserve Cabernet Sauvignon
$49.95 per bottle ($65 RRP) - BUY HERE
The 2016 vintage was the classis MR vintage. This wine is certainly one of the best value Cabernets in MR, hands down. Again, half the work is already done but this wine will continue to develop with time, make no mistake. The flavours are to die for, with cassis and black fruits, framed by exceptional oak treatment. It is simply sublime…
With the advent of the ‘Super Premiums’, this wine an absolute stunner and seriously well priced. With an impending price increase, now it the time to jump onboard, as once gone, there no coming back.
Fraser Gallop/Amelia Park 6pk
$260.00 per 6pk - BUY HERE
3 bottles of each of the above two wines …the best of both worlds!
2016 Leeuwin Estate 'Art Series' Chardonnay - JUST RECEIVED THE RATING OF EXCEPTIONAL BY DECANTER - THE BEST CHARDONNAY SINCE INCEPTION in 1987.
$98.95 per bottle ($104 RRP) - BUY HERE - SECURED ANOTHER 3 Dozen.
SARAH AHMED last night rated the 2016 Leeuwin 'Art Series' Chardonnay the best since 1987! As such, we've begged and pleaded and Leeuwin generously have provided us another 3 dozen of this amazing Chardonnay.
This Chardonnay is at exceptionally low supply, so this continue to be on a first come, first serve basis.
