The phone flashed as the call came in ... it was our man in Oz - "WE'VE GOT A CODE RED!"
Rich, old-vine Aussie Shiraz
This is a killer deal for anyone who loves their reds jam-packed to the gunnels with flavour. Deep River Shiraz is a richly textured, BIG bear-hug of a wine. Expect intense dark berry fruits, vibrant blackberry and fresh plum flavours - with a lovely lick of liquorice and pepper spice. It is Australia's signature red style at its best.
Now ... DEEP RIVER is a special label we use for a highly acclaimed family winery based in quality hot spot Langhorne Creek, home to some of the oldest vines in Australia (up to a century in age).
Whenever the winery needs to shift some surplus stock quickly and discreetly, they ring our Aussie buyer Dan and offer to bottle it for him under the anonymous' Deep River label - thus protecting their premium reputation. Here they wanted to clear the decks for their cellar inventory before the New Year - and offered Dan the last 500 cases at a ridiculously low price. It's the kind of must-act-now deal that Dan calls a CODE RED.
£17.99 £8.99 a bottle, this is a serious bargain. Go, go, go!
