Wine Summary
Ever fancied working in wine? First step, become a cellarhand! During vintage, wineries need all the help they can get, and getting a job as a cellarhand is easy. Being a cellarhand however (or a ‘barrel monkey’ as they are fondly called) is very hard work! Scrambling over barrels, dragging heavy hoses around, cleaning out two tonne fermenters – it’s not for the faint-hearted! And neither is this wine, named in honour of these hard workers. It’s a BIG full-flavoured red that will definitely impress.No monkeying around... this is a BIG McLaren Vale Shiraz that you will love.

31 December, 2027
Wine Summary
It takes either a madman or a genius to come up with brilliant innovations like this Cabernet Shiraz Nero d'Avola blend, but the team behind BedLam & OrdEr and not afraid of attempting something new. Australian winemakers have been doing it for years – Cabernet Shiraz being the perfect example of a classic Australian style known the world over. Here, the BedLam & OrdEr winemakers have given this classic style a refresh with the addition of Italian favourite, Nero d'Avola. It improves the blend with a tease of tannin, more dark fruits like plum and black cherry, plus a soft liquorice element. There's a hint of mint you might catch, a much-loved characteristic of Fleurieu Cabernet Shiraz blends. Fruit forward and made to drink now.

Wine Summary
A luscious Gold-medal Merlot from the great John Quarisa. It's smooth and complex, with velvety black forest fruits and a juicy plummy note. The palate is silky and lovely. It’s a brilliant partner to pan-fried lamb cutlets. John Quarisa’s lovely Caravan Petite Sirah has become a cult-classic with our customers. But will his velvety Merlot knock the Petite Sirah off its perch?

Wine Summary
Juicy, smooth and oh-so-easy to drink, the 94pt Colab & Bloom Tempranillo smells of violets, ripe cherry and vanilla. On the palate there are nuances of dusty earth, rich red fruits, vanilla and sun-baked leather. Grown in David Blows' Macclesfield Vineyard in the picturesque Adelaide Hills. "Offering fabulous fruit purity and perfume, the wine shows sweet plum, blueberry, floral and subtle spice aromas, leading to a succulent palate that's plump and silky. Delightfully composed and expressed, making it comforting and immediately drinkable. At its best: now to 2028." (Sam Kim, Wine Orbit).
