Gruetzner Vineyard Cabernet Shiraz 2013 (6 x 750ml)

Like Penfolds Bin 389 - only better - and half the price!

From a Penfolds Grange-supplying vineyard

Made by a former Penfolds winemaker

You mightn't heard of the Gruetzner vineyard or Tom Riley, the man that made it, but it's time you got acquainted. Located in Apsley in far-western Victoria, the Gruetzner vineyard produces dry-grown Shiraz and Cabernet Sauvignon fruit of exceptional quality. Very few sites can lay claim to making the cut for Penfolds Grange, but the Gruetzner vineyard can.

While working with Penfolds as a member of the Grange winemaking team, Tom Riley kept a watching eye on the fruit coming in from the Gruetzner vineyard. Upon leaving Penfolds, he set about creating his interpretation of the classic Australian Cabernet Shiraz blend, sourcing fruit exclusively from the Gruetzner vineyard.

In many respects, Gruetzner Vineyard Cabernet Shiraz is like Penfolds Bin 389, but with the added distinction of being a single vineyard wine. It is matured exclusively in used oak barrels, the fruit very much taking centre stage. With its natural fruit tannin and balanced acidity, this wine has the necessary building blocks for a bright cellaring future.

When purchased in units of six bottles as part of this offer, you can buy the Gruetzner Vineyard Cabernet Shiraz 2013 for just $33 per bottle. That's roughly half the price of the current release of Penfolds Bin 389!

For those out there who bought the 2012 vintage release of Gruetzner Vineyard, the 2013 is just as good, with the blend favouring Cabernet Sauvignon rather than Shiraz.

For those interested in securing a bottle or two of Penfolds Grange as a gift, to maintain a vertical or just to enjoy sometime down the track, we are offering the 2011 vintage, released a few weeks ago.

With the festive party season upon us, do not miss the opportunity to load up with a six-pack or two of the exceptional Franck Bonville Blanc de Blancs Grand Cru NV.  At just $50 per bottle by the six-pack, it has to be the best Champagne deal going around!

(Offer price - $35 per bottle  $210 per six-pack)
"Tom Riley has left the corporate winemaking life at Penfolds and set up his own label, sourcing fruit from top vineyards.  This full-bodied, dark-fruited firm and cellar-worthy cabernet shiraz comes from a remote site in Victoria's Wimmera."
