Spring White 2016

Rod McDonald Wines
Te Awanga Estate
Reserve Sauvignon Blanc 2016

This premier wine is the result of a direct collaboration between The Wine Society and Rod McDonald. Made exclusively for Wine Society members, this Best in Society Sauvignon Blanc represents the epitome of diligent winemaking.

"Lime, guava and lemongrass aromas lead into a rich palate that boasts enticing passionfruit and citrus flavours. It’s rich and textural with a lovely chalkiness, leading into a crisp, lingering finish.”
Winemaker Rod McDonald

Winter Red 2016

Barons of Barossa
Wine Society 70th Anniversary
Shiraz 2014

One of our most loyal winemaking partners, Barons of Barossa, has crafted a wine specifically to commemorate our 70th anniversary as Australia’s original wine club. Made from select parcels, the Barons of Barossa Wine Society 70th Anniversary Shiraz 2014 is a beautiful wine and one that we are proud to showcase as our Best in Society Winter Red for 2016.

"Brilliant purple and opaque cherry hues. Great brightness of fruit with lifted spicy blackberry florals and intense layers of dark plum, earth and coffee. The palate is complex with spice, juicy cassis and dark plum, while the tannins are complex with refreshing acidity. This wine will age extremely well over the long term!" Barossa Baron and Winemaker Colin Glaetzer

Autumn Red 2016

Leconfield
Winemaker's Reserve
Cabernet Sauvignon 2014

Hailing from the world famous Coonawarra comes this sophisticated, elegant and intensely flavoured Cabernet Sauvignon from Leconfield – a leading family winery with a genuine passion for producing the best Cabernet Sauvignon from exceptional Coonawarra fruit.

"The beauty in this wine lies in its power, yet elegance; its persistence and length; its aroma of fully ripened, cool climate Coonawarra Cabernet Sauvignon. Fine grained French oak plays a diminutive yet important role to contribute cedar and nutmeg nuances." Winemaker Paul Gordon.

Summer White 2016

Hand Crafted
by Geoff Hardy
Chardonnay 2015

From the outstanding vintage of 2015 comes this Adelaide Hills Chardonnay, a wine of blockbuster quality with a magical combination of fruit, texture and complexity.

"Freshly picked quinces and apples lift from the glass with hints of citrus blossom and shortcrust pastry. Barrel fermentation accentuates the fruit, lending great texture to the spiced poached pear, pithy lemon and white peach on the palate. Complexing notes of flint, cashew and oatmeal bring further interest to the crunchy natural acidity on the finish,” Shane Harris, Winemaker.
