“Wines from somewhere ...

 

... rather than wines from anywhere”

 

Thats our moto ...  and here's our latest collection of wines continuing our Antipodes speciality, we are pleased to continue to offer wines which are either very rare in the UK or even only found at Cellar Collection and our restaurant Estbek House – thanks to our good friends! We all (rightly) think of France in terms of its regions, we never say “I’ll have a bottle of Pinot Noir” and then buy one from Bordeaux – it simply would not be right, you would go to Burgundy. So why do we all say ‘I’ll have a bottle of Australian Shiraz’ or ‘I don’t like Australian Chardonnay’ ... look at France it makes a raft of styles with the chardonnay grape – to suit most palates & you would not buy a Syrah from Chablis region, it would be way too cold to reach any level of quality. So why don’t we think of Australia & New Zealand in the same context? It’s the same question many producers & the Wine Australia industry body are trying to answer. For our part, that’s where this lists steps in... the regions of Australia & New Zealand! As always please do ask if you have any questions – and we would love to hear your feedback on this list.
