1877 Shiraz: Hand-picked, 5 days cold soak, open-fermented, up to 50% whole bunches, 14 days on skins, matured for 9 months in French puncheons (35% new). Fragrance and elegance personified. Juicy cherry fruit opens proceedings, then mouthwatering acidity and fine-grained tannins draw out the lingering finish. Amen.

842 Chardonnay: Pale straw-green; an aristocratic chardonnay, if there can be such a thing; complex, yet fruit-driven, bright acidity; enviable length and purity.

Show Reserve Muscat: The most striking of the three McWilliam's fortified wines in this group. Brandy snaps, a spice showcase, rum and raisin liqueur with rancio the key to a very good wine. Bottled '15 batch 002

This pack features the most iconic wines from McWilliam’s – the highly acclaimed 2015 McWilliam’s 1877 Shiraz (97 Halliday points) and 2014 McWilliam’s 842 Chardonnay (95 Halliday points). These wines are only made in exceptional years – the fruit comes from the very best vineyards that McWilliam’s produces. This is truly the best of the best… PLUS as a bonus you will also receive one bottle of McWilliam’s Show Reserve 25 Year old Muscat (valued at $80) and is the ultimate addition to your Christmas pudding!

  • 3x bottles of McWilliam’s 1877 Shiraz 2015 (97 points Halliday): This prestigious wine takes its name, “1877”, from the year 1st generation winemaker, Samuel McWilliam, planted the winery’s first vines in Corowa NSW and McWilliam’s Wines was born. Crafted from vigorously selected, high quality fruit from mature, low yielding vines, the 2015 vintage of McWilliam’s “1877” is a Shiraz from some of the best vines in the Canberra wine growing district. 2015 was almost a perfect growing season in the highlands of the Canberra wine region, with a mild spring and summer and allowed a long and even ripening period for fantastic flavour development. This wine is wonderfully medium bodied with bright acidity and fine slatey tannins. Perfumed floral red fruits with charcurterie (preserved cooked meat flavours) and toasty oak complete the palate. This 8-time Gold Medal winner represents the best of McWilliam’s Wines. Alc/Vol: 13.5%
  • 3x bottles of McWilliam’s 842 Tumbarumba Chardonnay (95 points Halliday): McWilliam’s champions the use of grapes planted in high altitude/cool-climate regions to deliver quality wines with crisp, fruit-driven flavours and our flagship McWilliam’s 842 Chardonnay epitomises this philosophy. The name 842 references the peak altitude of the Tumbarumba wine region at 842 metres above sea level. This wine showcases aromas of white nectarine, green apple and fig, with gun flint, cashew nut and spicy toasty oak. White fruit and a nutty creamy oak textured complexity fills the mouth. The crunchy mineral acidity (a hallmark of Tumbarumba grown grapes) provides length and drive for an incredibly long and persistent finish. With 3 Trophies and 11 Gold Medals, McWilliam’s 842 is a top-shelf Chardonnay! Alc/Vol: 13%
  • BONUS bottle of McWilliam’s Show Reserve 25 year old Muscat 500ml (95 points Halliday): McWilliam’s has a long and prestigious history in producing fortified wines and this is the best. This vintage Muscat has cellared for a minimum of 25 years and only released when it reaches optimum maturity. For the festive season, this is liquid Christmas pudding in a bottle… rich, intense but very smooth and luscious. Muscat flavours with some concentrated raisin and fruit mince tart characters in huge concentration. The finish is rich and mouth coating and lingers for a long time. A truly magnificent pedigree with 4 trophies and 32 Gold Medals to its credit. Alc/Vol: 18.5%
