Wines to help you through winter

It’s the time of year where the woolly socks and slow cooking recipes books are pulled out from the back of cupboards. Add a glass of a delicious wine and you have the perfect winter combination.

The Royal Mail Hotel Sommeliers – Matthew and Peter – have chosen three wines at stellar prices for large quantities, to keep your palette occupied throughout the colder months.

As the longer nights roll in, it’s hard to go past a French mondeuse or Grampians shiraz. For those beautifully sunny afternoons that winter often treats us with, there is a local rosé that is fruity and light.

From our cellar to yours, try any or all of the wines below and enjoy the charms of winter.

Matthew’s Choice – 2016 Montara Shiraz – Australia

A classic Grampians shiraz, with berry fruits and spicy oak. Ready to drink now, but further cellaring would also be a bonus.

1-5 bottles – $28
6-11 bottles – $26
12 or more bottles – $23

Peter’s Choice – 2014 Le Cellier Brondien Mondeuse  – France

A winter warmer – this French wine is a delicious shiraz perfect for the colder months. It offers fresh strawberry, florality and herbs.

6-11 bottles – $44
12 or more bottles – $40


Parker Street Project Wine of the Month – 2017 Crawford River Rosé – Australia

This local rosé is light in weight, with strawberries and redcurrant on the nose. It includes a small percentage of Semillon to add finesse, length and extra drinkability.

6-11 bottles – $26
12 or more bottles – $23
