Dom Perignon 2002

195 00

$

Dom Perignon is the most famous Champagne in the world, and for good reason - it has been immortalised by film, fashion, music and the arts. The 2002 is absolutely stunning. With a fullness in the mouth, it’s earthy, smoky, pearly complexity rises to the surface, underscored by the vibrant warmth of peppery spice. The sensation of intensity develops and ,melts into a deep, rounded heart, with a fruity, exotic maturity and a slight touch of aniseed. This sensation is even more pronounced in the finish, while the notes of spice, still present, remain discreet, with toasted, iodine flavours. Dom Perignon comes in a beautifully packaged gift box and stand. ................................................................................................................................ ...................................................... ......................................................................................................................................................................................

“This is one of Champagne’s great wines. Given the relatively recent disgorgement (July 2010), the wine is somewhat shutdown, but with time in the glass, gorgeous, perfumed Pinot notes begin to emerge. This is a totally refined, seductive expression of Pinot. Chalky, mineral notes frame the long, utterly impeccable finish. A fabulous effort.” - Antonio Galloni, The Wine Advocate

Tapanappa Wines Tapanappa is an Australian fine wine company founded by Petaluma founder, Brian Croser, focusing on cool climate single vineyard wines. These wines are presented in a Tapanappa Gift Box. 2010 Tapanappa Piccadilly Chardonnay “This has an instant air of complexity about it, with creamy lees-derived aromas, some nougat, honeysuckle and plenty of ripe white peach fruit. The oak is toasty and fresh. In the mouth, it’s a powerful wine with composure, strength and layered structure.” - Nick Stock, Good Wine Guide 2012

$39.99 2010 Tapanappa Fleurie Pinot Noir “Croser’s quest to make great Pinot continues apace with this dark cherry scented style, some bergamot and earl grey tea, sweet earthy depth, lighter perfume and bright red fruits. The palate is supple, with a composed bed of open weave tannins flowing effortlessly and carrying ripe cherry and berry pastry flavours, finishing precise and tangy. Lovely wine.” - Nick Stock, Good Wine Guide 2012

$29.99 2007 Tapanappa Wrattonbully Cabernet Shiraz “No compromising on quality here, with low yielding vines expressing an essential sense of place. It’s vivid with plum, violets, eucalypt and chocolate. An earthy palate ensues with lovely black fruit ands spice, some charry oak. Great texture and firm tannins see it through the long finish.

$49.99

Heathcote Estate Shiraz 2008 Victoria’s Heathcote region keeps growing in stature, producing hallmark wines that are becoming bywords for quality. Heathcote Estate, by virtue of more than just name, is at the forefront of this renaissance. Evident before the cork is even pulled, by the brooding red behind the glass, their Estate Shiraz displays all of Heathcote’s trademark characteristics, from the punchy blackberry/raspberry nose, through the subtler shades of oak, spice and as always, flirtations of chocolate. The deft integration of tannins, always a sign of quality Shiraz, orchestrates a silky finish that lingers and leaves you plotting a tour of the region’s wineries.

$44.99

Penfolds ’50th Anniversary’ Bin 28 Kalimna Shiraz 2008 For the label-conscious, the Penfolds 50th Anniversary Bin 28 Shiraz makes an excellent gift idea. It comes presented in a very smart flip-top lid cardboard gift box. “Penfolds Bin 28 Kalimna Shiraz is named after the Northern Barossa vineyard purchased by Penfolds in 1945, although it has been a multi-regional blend for a long time, which includes fruit from Mclaren Vale and Langhorne Creek. We reckon Penfolds have put a bit more of the good stuff from the Barossa vineyard in this one to mark the anniversary. Juicy but firm blackberry and redcurrant with a touch of plum cake and liquorice, sweet and lightly-charred mocha-chocolate-vanilla from 12 months in seasoned American oak. Finishes with some drying dusty oak tannins.” - GenXY Wines

For the Wine Connoisseur who has it all Winesave is simple - a black can of inert gas that you spray into an open bottle of wine in order to preserve the contents. What makes it different is the inert gas - Winesave is 100% Argon, a naturally occurring atmospheric gas that is completely inert so that imparts no flavour or effect on wine whatsoever, whilst preventing oxygen (in the air) from coming into contact with the wine and oxidising (spoiling) it. Winesave is without question the most effective method of preserving open bottles of wine, even more effective than the commercial nitrogen-dispensing machines often used in many wine bars and restaurants. Argon has always been considered the best inert gas to use for wine preservation, the difficulty until now has been in its storage and delivery system. Winesave has a unique method of containing the Argon (through its’ precision-designed canister) which allows for effective home use. The beauty of winesave allows you to have numerous bottles of wine open simultaneously, drinking them over many nights or weeks without any degradation of wine quality whatsoever.
