Upon hearing of Scheherazade’s impressive have-a-chat abilities during One Thousand and One Nights, the French adapted their favoured Rhône Valley drop, known as ‘Syrah’, to ‘Shiraz’ in her honour. Discover the ultimate balance and multiply by 12 with today’s deal: $99 for a dozen bottles of exclusive Hunter Valley wine from the Garden Cellar Doors ($270 value).
Connoisseurs and perplexed present givers pinch themselves when witnessing the Garden Cellar Doors’ once-in-a-winetime offer, indulging in 12 bottles of red and white boutique plonk. Vino savourers revel in Garden Cellar’s stellar catalogue, opting for a case of 12 reds, whites or an enviably mixed dozen. Household names such as De Bortoli delight with whites like the Sémillon Chardonnay - quince, citrus and tropical stone fruit characters balancing herbaceous tones and toasty oak, or the red velvet DB shiraz spin - typically boasting rich, structured palates with tantalising tannins. Treasured Hunter darling Tyrell’s champions staple Sémillon Sauvignon Blanc, celestially combining archetypal sémillon citrus characters and sav blanc lifted herbaceous hints, or shiraz, entertaining Hunter, McLaren Vale and Heathcote grapes. Other boutique drops may include lovingly produced options from Rafferty’s Rules, Spring Mountain, Terrel Estate and more.
