1 case 2006 Warburn Stephendale Shiraz + 1 case Koalas Rest Shiraz at Jacks Wine $99

1 April 2008

This is a good buy.

The case of Warburn is otherwise selling for $119 or so elsewhere, and has a good James Halliday rating so its not bad on its own. Then they throw in the Koala's rest as a bonus making it even better.

    hot from me admin! Here is the review from the site if anyone is wondering what the Warburn Stephendale Shiraz is like: Jack's Comments: When I first tasted this wine it was just bottled and I suspect suffering from bottle shock and though it came across as good wine it was soft. Well it is amazing how a little time has transformed this wine into an absolute gem, it has filled out with lovely dark cherry flavours; this is a fantastic wine for the price but give it a glass to show its full potential. Lovely intense warm flavours that fill your mouth and balanced and intergrated. Winemaker's Comments: Deep crimson colour with rich hues and rich youthful appearance. Ripe plum and blueberry flavours with a luxurious liquorice. The cracked pepper undertone brings with it a hit of chocolate and extends to give a strong lengthy vanilla finish. Region: Barossa Cellaring Potential: Will reward with 2-3 years Cork or Screw Cap: Screw Cap And here is the review from the site if anyone is wondering what the Koala's Rest Shiraz is like: Jack's Comments: Lighter in colour than the Cabernet Merlot, Nice clean roses red colour; Good dark berries in the flavour and again more flavour than you would expect; Their is nothing wrong with this wine it drinks well and you would not be ashamed serving this to friends at a barbacue; well worth the money. PLEASE NOTE: this is a export Label for Russian and as a result the writting on the back is in Russian. Blend: Shiraz Region: South Eastern Australia Cellaring Potential: Will benefit from 1-2 years buy is drinking well now.

    Hot from me but a scolding for such a temptation! LOL. Works out less than $5 a bottle delivered for me. So so tempting......

    Jacks delivery price is reasonable but gets a bit hefty to the boonie states like WA - I always give credit to wine lovers club as theirs are very good.

What do you think?
