Free shipping over 750 HKD
Barossa Valley, SA
Moonlit night, good company, even better bottles. You know the drill. Tuck this shiraz away for 8 years, and it’ll rise to any special occasion, no dramas.
There’s more to this one than first meets the mouth. Layers of baking spices, dark plum, star anise and chocolate, expertly balanced with dusty tannins. Sublime stuff.
When it comes to wine families, Sam and Jock Auld are the real deal. It’d be hard not to become a vino obsessive when your Barossa Valley upbringing meant dried grape seeds cushioning falls from the monkey bars and early morning pruning as teens. But given their pioneering great-grandfather planted some of SA’s very first vines, it was written. If the Auld family name had been used consistently for the last six generations, it might be as renowned as Penfolds. But as one of the ‘in crowd’, we’re kind of pleased it isn’t.
