Riesling, Hentley Farm and more Burgundy Pre-Arrivals

Wednesday, 22 October 2014 3:53:27 PM Australia/Sydney

Burgundy Offer
October 2014
This weeks Burgundy offer has wines from the famous Comtes de Vogue and Domaine Drouhin-Laroze to the tiny, up and coming Chablis producer Sébastien Dampt.
The Vogue is due to arrive within the next week, whilst the Laroze and Dampt are about three weeks away.

Riesling
We love our Riesling here at East End Cellars and a rather warm start to Spring has us reaching for a fresh 2014 Riesling already.
Below we've featured four fantastic new releases, each with their own personality, but all pure, vibrant expressions of Riesling. From the new release 2014 Grosset wines, the first release of Riesling legend John Vickery's eponymous wine to a cheeky half bottle of Tom Shobbrooks textural Eden Valley, there is enough here to keep anyone cool...

New Release Rockford and SC Pannell amongst other great Shiraz. Plus more tastings...

Wednesday, 15 October 2014 5:53:56 PM Australia/Sydney

Stylish Shiraz
In this week’s e-mail we are featuring four fantastic forms of the most popular variety Shiraz (Syrah)... Four wines from across Australia, all very different but outstanding wines in their own way. Rockford Basket Press Shiraz has for years been one of our top selling Barossa Shiraz (if only we could get more!) the 2011 is a slight style change, due to the cooler vintage but it still has that Rockford class. An EEC staff favourite the SC Pannell Syrah is back, and the 2013 is another triumph for Steve, so slick, so fresh, so very drinkable... James Erskine is back with his Spring Releases, his Alessa Shiraz is beautifully made wholesome wine, that exudes James's' dynamic nature and energy. Don't just stop at his Shiraz, try his 2014 Jauma Biggles Grenache too, a bunchy, bright red with luscious fruit that oozes texture. Lastly but by no means less the 2012 Friends of Punch Shiraz. It's no secret 2012 was a stellar vintage for the Yarra Valley and this elegant Shiraz from Punch shows great depth of fruit without ever feeling heavy...

Tomfoolery
Barossa Young Guns Ben 'Chippy' Chipman & Toby Yap cut their teeth working for some of the regions' best producers. Tomfoolery started back in 2004 as a side project for the lads with a small parcel of Shiraz.

Jamsheed
We've been big fans of Gary Mills' wines for a while now, following his rise as one of Australia's premier Shiraz producers. His work with whole bunches and single vineyard sites helps to create Syrah/Shiraz of great regional character.
