Ah yes – AFL grand final weekend – something to celebrate. We are open Friday and Saturday unless Arthur’s Seat decides to erupt. In any event, be it pandemic, earthquake or volcano, here are some celebratory tipples for the weekend ahead.
For the lead-in, Rob Dolan’s Blanc de Blanc might be the best priced sparkling in the country – perfect to start and to finish. For Demons supporters, our full Champagne selection is locked and stocked. As nights are still cold, Halliday’s highest scoring Cab Malbec from the home stable is not to be missed and close to gone. If you’re just here from premierships – Florence Cholet from DFC has dazzled with her 2019 High Hill of Beaune – it was a warm vintage so benefits from the higher elevation. It’s a delight.
Rob Dolan Black Label Blanc de Blancs Yea Valley
Smashing value from industry icon and value master. Long, lime and length.
Dominique Portet Cabernet Malbec Yarra Valley
The top scoring Cabernet Malbec from Halliday this year, straight off back of the family truck.
Domaine Florence Cholet Hautes-Cotes de Beaune
Great poise and presence, red burgs under $100 is not easy to master, but DFC delivers.
