6PK - $70 / BTL
Why do we love this case?
We hardly need to put premium wines on site before they sell out. What can we say? You Mofos just love them, and when the wines and pricing are this good, who can blame you? Mofos, say hello to the latest and greatest premium reds mixed pack. You can thank us later.
Each pack contains ONE bottle of each of the following:
1x Lornano Chianti Classico DOCG Sangiovese 2018
Red — Sangiovese
Tuscany — Italy
Chianti for the New World wine-lover. Bold and supple, with heaps of saucy black cherry action. The acid’s there; that common theme in pretty much all Italians that guarantees food-friendliness. Dusty cypress-lined gravel path tannins give just the right hint of the rustic, without taking away from the class and poise of what is a cracking vino. It already has one 97 point review and I’m sure there’s a few more accolades on the way.

1x Dealto El Primero Rioja 2019
Red — Tempranillo
Rioja — Spain
From the hot plains of the Rioja Oriental comes this powerful treasure. The artisans at deAlto are honoring the region’s incredible grenache growths (or, garnacha if you’re wanting to go full Español). There’s a touch of Rioja’s iconic tempranillo in here too, to give it a plush body with rounded edges. With all vineyards hugging the Ebro river, this is not just about jammy fruits- in fact it’s enormously elegant thanks to the lifted red fruits and structure that will hold tight for many years to come. 100% old French oak makes this a rare taste for the region, focusing on those finer expressions of spice and some slight vanilla. Succulent and desireable, this is an impressive wine ready to be enjoyed.

1x Château Sixtine Châteauneuf-du-Pape 2019
Red — Grenache Blend
Châteauneuf-du-Pape — France
Welcome to the new vintage of Château Sixtine, our most popular Châteauneuf-du-Pape ever! Buyer John Clark describes it as ‘one of the best wines I’ve ever bought’. Nobody’s going home disappointed with this. It’s generous and rich, but amazingly approachable at the same time. You’ll decant it, of course, to get every millimetre of depth and nuance out of it. But you won’t feel like you’re missing out by drinking it now. Have a couple this year, a couple in five, and a couple in ten. Then open your second case for the following decade. Go for a meaty lamb roast with this, and don’t spare the Provençal herbs.

1x Ulithorne Frux Frugis Shiraz 2016
Red — Shiraz
McLaren Vale — Australia
Welcome to Ulithorne’s flagship wine. All parents say they don’t have a favourite child, but we’re pretty sure this would be the one if you were to ask them. Picking the premium, low-yielding fruit from their vineyards, they’ve succeeded in creating a magnificently concentrated wine. Make no mistake, this is a big red wine. Juicy, plump, and fine grained. There’s some parcels of fruit that go into American oak, and some in French. Some new and some old. It hits all the notes and comes together in a symphony of black and blue fruits. We’ve been lucky to taste the Frux Frugis at 20 years of age, and we can attest to its strong ageing potential. C’mon, that review from James Halliday really speak for itself on this one.

1x El Enemigo Malbec 2019
Red — Malbec
Mendoza — Argentina
It’s hard to reach hyperbole when describing the wines of El Enemigo. The project is headed by Alejandro Vigil, chief winemaker for Catena Zapata, and Adrianna Catena, an accomplished historian and the daughter of the famous Nicolás Catena. Their wines tell a story, this one of the primary grape of Mendoza with a reference and expression to the harsh conditions encountered in making wine in the foothills of the Andes. It has all the bright fruit and spice expected of malbec, but there’s a touch of cab franc in there to provide structure and herbaceousness, both nods to the slow and steady ripening that occurs in the deep rocky soils at such high altitudes.
You’d pay $75 full price.
1x Kilikanoon Attunga 1865 Shiraz 2015
Red — Shiraz
Clare Valley — Australia
Over 150 years ago the vines for this wine were planted in the Clare valley. It’s not often you come across vines that old, in fact these were amongst the earliest years of plantings in Australia. Not only have these vines essentially become one with the terroir in that time, but Kilikanoon crops at super low yields to achieve small, intense berries. You’ll see that immeasurable flavour immediately- beyond anything you’ll get just from age or good winemaking. It’s deep red with crimson hues, and all the prowess to follow through. New and old french oak has given this baby structure and intensity; lifted dark fruits, fresh licorice and compote entertain the palate while the vanilla and light spice do the supporting work behind the scenes. It’s sincere yet subtle, immense yet composed. This will not disappoint you, even for decades to come.
