Video One: Langmeil 1843 Freedom Shiraz 2005
Langmeil are sitting on a bit of Australian wine heritage – a three and a half acre vineyard that was planted in 1843 called “The Freedom”, which is quite possibly the world’s oldest surviving vineyard. The result is a wine of remarkable concentration, complexity and longevity. Very limited availability. (95 points, J. Halliday)

Video Two: Elgin Vintners Sauvignon Blanc 2008
Elgin Valley, the home of Elgin Vintners, lies just 70 km from Cape Town and now has a worldwide reputation for producing some of South Africa’s finest wines. Decanter World Wine Awards ’09 Bronze Medal.
Video Three: Poggiobello Pinot Grigio 2008
From the eastern hills of Friuli (Colli orientali del Friuli DOC) where Pinot Grigio really feels at home. This is the white sibling of our #twebt wine and a sure-fire special treat for those regular PG drinkers.
Video Four: Moillard Bourgogne Rouge 2007
A quality Burgundy Pinot Noir without the big price tag. The cooler climate makes for a light, elegant and drier styled red which is a quality match for good food. Well done Moillard, you’ve done it again!
Video Five: Muddy Water Sauvignon Blanc 2009
New Zealand Sauvignon Blanc with a twist. Six months on its lees in very clean, old oak, has imparted a beautiful, savoury roundness. Made for food, this will age and evolve better than most NZ Sauvignon.
