Christmas Offer

We’ve teamed up with fine-wine specialists CellarHand to bring you another fundraising offer. It’s one that we hope will provide your festive gatherings with lovely wine to share, while also sending 20% of proceeds to the St John’s Pantry Appeal.

Simply select your wines from the list below, in the quantity you desire. Or, if you’d be happier delving into the whole CellarHand range (it’s impressive!), you can shop the entire site and the same deal appies.

The most important thing, however, is to please remember to enter the fundraising coupon code PANTRY APPEAL when you go to the checkout.

Thank you again for your generous support, and have a very merry Christmas.

2019 Glaetzer Bishop Shiraz2019 Glaetzer Bishop ShirazThe 2019 Bishop Shiraz is all Shiraz and all from the Ebenezer district of the northern Barossa Valley. Aged almost exclusively in second, third and fourth use oak (mostly French), it features slight herbal overtones to the black cherry and black olive notes. It's medium to full-bodied on the palate, supple, generous and reasonably concentrated, folding in hints of peppery spice and mocha shadings on the velvety, mouthwatering finish. 91 points. Joe Czerwinski, Wine Advocate September 2021$37.00
2018 Balnaves The Blend2018 Balnaves The BlendCombines 54/34/9% Merlot/Cabernet Sauvignon/Cabernet Franc and the all-important 1% glug of petit Verdot. Reflecting its regional bearings brilliantly and a bargain to boot. Florals, red fruits, just a hint of raspberry confectionary and no shortage of spices either. Medium bodied at best, a coating of furry ripe tannins and sweet fruit crossing to a savouriness. 92 points. Jane Faulkner, Halliday Wine Companion 2022$23.00
2019 Pierre Amadieu Côtes-du-Rhône 'Roulepierre' Rouge2019 Pierre Amadieu Côtes-du-Rhône 'Roulepierre' RougeShow-stopping value and quality again from this most reliable of southern Rhône producers. Laced with earth and spice, its juicy bouquet of cranberries, blood plums and cherries precedes a long, richly flavoured and textural palate of crunchiness and brightness. Red and blue fruits framed by mouth-coating tannins drive long and impactful towards a faintly meaty, savoury and liquorice-like finish that becomes more mineral with aeration. Delicious! Jeremy Oliver, Gourmet Traveller WINE$25.00
2020 Chalmers Rosato2020 Chalmers Rosato86/7/7% Aglianico/Nero d’Avola/Sagrantino. Handpicked and whole-bunch pressed, wild-yeast fermented – the Aglianico in chestnut botte, the Nero d’Avola and Sagrantino in stainless steel. Without doubt one of the few Aussie rosés ever produced from these grapes. Pretty in dusty pink. Earthy, dusty, dried cranberry and cherry aromas move into a lightly floral palate with light spice and a solid acid backbone. Taut and tasty. 88 points. Jeni Port, Halliday Wine Companion 2022$28.00
2021 Punt Road Pinot Gris2021 Punt Road Pinot Gris $24.00
2020 TWR Sauvignon Blanc2020 TWR Sauvignon BlancA complex, familiar bouquet of SB with aromas of ripe citrus and tropical fruits, soft sage-like herb layer and fruit spices. There’s power and intensity with a precise and enticing complexity. On the palate - equally complex with flavours and textures of crushed stones, pith and ripe orchard fruits then herbs and spice. The tropical fruits layers in reflecting variety with a vibrato and finesse reflecting site and winemaking. A delicious wine with power and drive - a limousine style. Well made and ready to drink from purchase and through 2025+. 95 points. Cameron Douglas MS, camdouglasms.com$30.00

2019 Louis Michel Chablis2019 Louis Michel ChablisA super village Chablis that overdelivers and tops many Premier Crus for quality and drinkability. The fruit is punchy and pure – green apple, wet stones and honeydew melon – with great impact, energy and vitality. That concentration continues on the palate, where ripe and generous fruit of exceptional length underpins the crisp acidity – with that energy again on display. Superb drinking now, but the balance and fruit concentration will support cellaring for up to five years. 93 points. Angus Hughson, Gourmet Traveller WINE $64.00
2018 Yeringberg Cabernets2018 Yeringberg CabernetsBeautiful perfume of dried flowers, sweet tobacco and spice, blackcurrant and redcurrant, even almond meal. Dense and dark, with a smattering of dried herb, ripe cherry, crisp acidity, firm grainy tannin, and a distinctly ‘mineral’ and savoury finish of exemplary length. It’s a textbook example of superb Yarra Valley Cabernet. 96 points. Gary Walsh, The Wine Front$98.00
NV Airlie Bank Yarra Cuvée SparklingNV Airlie Bank Yarra Cuvée SparklingNV Airlie Bank Yarra Cuvée Sparkling is a bright, fresh and delicious blend from Tim Shand and the team at Punt Road. Outstanding value and an ideal cool-climate Aussie Chardonnay/Pinot Noir aperitif or party fizz.$24.00
