Handpicked Wines aren’t your normal winemakers. Rather than restricting themselves to the grapes of one region, their goal is instead to lead wine enthusiasts through a tour of the finest wine regions of not just Australia, but the world. With the Handpicked Regional Reds Trio, you can see this goal come to life.
Wines created from Australia’s three most renowned red grapes – Shiraz, Cabernet Sauvignon and Pinot Noir – and emanating from some of Australia’s most renowned wine regions – the Mornington Peninsula, the Coonawarra and Heathcote – have been brought together by handpicked in a beautifully presented collector’s box.
Handpicked Regional Cabernet Sauvignon Coonawarra 2013: Featuring a firm tannin finish that characterizes quality cabernet sauvignon, this Coonawarra 2013 is loaded with big fruit flavours.
Handpicked Regional Shiraz Heathcote 2012: This shiraz has been crafted using fruit from two unique Heathcote vines; one sits in the area’s famed pre-Cambrian soil, and the other grew up on granite. This unique make-up offers the resulting blend of depth and complexity that is truly breath-taking, and which is only made more so by the maturing of wine in French oak.
Handpicked Regional Pinot Noir Mornington Peninsula 2016: Handpicked Wines’ first foray into Mornington Peninsula Pinot Noir is a worthwhile one. It features floral notes to attract the nose, fresh berry fruit flavours to attract the tongue, and the soft tannins, fresh acidity and aromatic lift that make quality pinot noir oh so drinkable.
