When choosing a white wine to produce from McLaren Vale, I looked at the varieties that grow well here and the corresponding region in France. Shiraz and Grenache are the stand out red varieties of McLaren Vale which also grow very well in the Rhone region of France. One of the most interesting whites from this area is Viognier (Condrieu appellation). As it turns out, Viognier is the 4th largest white variety by tonnes crushed in McLaren Vale so finding some was quite easy! I made the wine in a fresh aromatic style, completely un-oaked. It looks a bit like a Sauvignon Blanc on the nose and a Chardonnay on the palate.
Generally we use Australia Post for all deliveries.
In most cases, when you place an order the wine will be packed and delivered to the post office the next day. Standard delivery times to most capital cities is 2 - 5 days but this can sometimes go out to 7 days with pickup timings etc.
Express post is not really an option unless you contact me specifically. To express post wine we need to pack it in foam and the cost is much (much) more than I can absorb into my free and discounted delivery options.
Please order a minimum of 6 bottles (Rusty Mutt - 3 for Vermilion Bird) and then in multiples of 3 from there. This allows for the most efficient packing and price. Australia Post is not a charity. When I offer free delivery I still need to pay for it!
