Often, the best way to plan your wine buying is to match a wine to an occasion, then work backwards. Meshach, the definition of special occasion wine, means Xmas is taken care of. That’s one big worry dealt with in plenty of time. 

The other 11 are a cracking mix of classics that’ll cover you for four seasons. Whites for summer, reds for winter, and even a sparkling rosé for your birthday. It’s a ’fo-curated countdown to Meshach-mas Day. Or, if you’re anything like me, you’ll have ploughed through every delicious drop by mid-March.

Regardless of your restraint, every box contains one of each of the following:

Grant Burge Meshach Shiraz 2012

McLaren Vale, SA

98pts James Halliday | 97pts Peter Chapman | Five red star Halliday rated winery

This is one of Australia’s most collected wines from one of the top five most famous wineries in the Barossa. It’s of impeccable pedigree and is capable of cellaring 20 years plus.

No two ways about it, Meshach’s at the big end of town. Lots of fruit, lots of oak, lots of impact. Chief Winemaker, Craig Stansborough, says it’ll be in your face until its early teenage years, and then everything starts to come together. Like the absolute joy of having kids, but you can tuck them away until they’re becoming civil. And then you can pull one out on an appropriately swanky occasion, decant, watch it blossom and do you proud.

BLACK MARKET Shiraz 2017

Heathcote, VIC

Killer Vintage

2017 was a stellar vintage pretty much all over Victoria, and Heathcote was no different. Of all grapes in Heathcote, says Halliday, shiraz was the standout. Reason to get excited then! If you’re a fan of the region (that makes two of us), then you’ll love this. Rich, ripe red and black fruits make for plush mouthfeel. Then, that characteristic spiciness crackles across the back palate. It’s all held together by supportive but unobtrusive French and American oak. Heathcote shiraz is a fun wine anyway, and this one’s a ripsnorter. Fire in your belly, and spice in your glass. You’d like four cases? Thought you’d never ask.

YOU’D PAY $35 full price.

BLACK MARKET Shiraz 2017

Frankland River, WA

Five red star Halliday rated winery

Rich and spicy cherry, plum and dark berries fill the glass, with licorice, black pepper and earth providing an alluring, inky depth. The palate is full and soft, driven by dark, pillowy fruit.

YOU’D PAY $29 full price.

BLACK MARKET Sauvignon Blanc 2016 

Yarra Valley, VIC

93pts James Halliday | 5 star Halliday rated winery

Barrel ferment is evident, but oak not obtrusive. A lovely, integrated and lively style of savvy, even three years down the track. Vibrant and citrusy, reminiscent of prosciutto-wrapped asparagus, a tropical fruit platter and a salted cashew-macadamia nut mix. Screams of mineral flavours too. Surely planted on an ancient seabed. The texture’s wonderful and balances that bright acidity perfectly. Long, long, long.

YOU’D PAY $28 full price.

BLACK MARKET Riesling 2018

Clare Valley, SA

95pts Sam Kim | 5 red star Halliday rated winery

This Watervale riesling is from 100% free run juice - i.e. only the best bits. Lemons, limes - sure. But it’s the tight little palate that sets this riesling apart. Zesty and fresh, dry and crisp, with florals and a softly mineral richness thanks to gentle lees-stirring. It screams classic Watervale riesling, and we’re happy to be shouted at if it ends up tasting this good. Scream away, little rizza.

YOU’D PAY $27 full price.

Andevine The Signature Collection Shiraz 2015

Canberra District

5 star Halliday rated winery

Light, bright and tight on the nose, and just starting to flesh out. Lots of peppery violet and spicy red berry aromas, while the palate brings home its serious nature; bright again, but fountains of soft tannin join the fray. Blackberry and mulberry bring up a round robin of fruit, adding density and depth. The finish is smothered in moist chocolate cake and kirsch. Balanced and long. Just add peppered steak. 

YOU’D PAY $25 full price.

Night Flower Cuvée NV

Tasmania, AU

5 star Halliday rated winery

This wine walks the line of wonderfully expressive cleanliness - I know, a juxtaposition, you’d think. Everything natural you’d want and everything crisp and cleansing too. Lots of gewürz notes for something that professes only to have chardonnay, pinot noir, pinot meunier and moscato in there, but maybe it’s the moscato speaking. Grapiness for sure now that you mention it (hallmark moscato), followed up by Turkish Delight, rosewater and melon (hello chardonnay). On the very edge of being qualified as a rosé, but let’s be honest - it doesn’t matter. It’s a super aromatic nose, very interesting and a little bit sweet, but finishes dry enough to please all, with fine bubbles and a fun vibe.

Ludic Pinot Grigio 2017

King Valley, VIC

Ludic means ‘showing spontaneous and undirected playfulness’. I can’t believe I haven’t been called this before now. It’s ludicrous. Look, we all ‘know’ what pinot grigio tastes like. But do we? No, we don’t. Not, that is, until you’ve tried proper grigio from Veneto or Australia’s unofficial home of the variety, King Valley. You get properly flavoursome Nashi pear, stone fruits and citrus, real minerality and extra fine texture without any artificial acidity. But you don’t really know what that feels like until you taste it. So do yourself a favour. It’s time for some spontaneous and undirected playfulness. It’s Ludic time.

Penley Estate Cabernet Sauvignon 2017

Coonawarra, SA

5 star Halliday rated winery

Making the staple wine of a brand is probably harder than making its flagships. Flagships get to express individuality - the features and foibles of vintage. The staple of a stable has to work much harder, and shine as a beacon of aspiration, year in, year out - day in, day out. It’s gotta do the heavy lifting. And for Kate Goodman and Penley, 2017 is a benchmark vintage that was always going to mark Penley as one to really watch. The momentum of Penley has cranked up over the last few vintages since Kate’s arrival, with a clear pivot towards more elegant expressions of their unique terroir. And here is the purest expression of that terroir to date. 

YOU’D PAY $24 full price.

BLACK MARKET Pinot Noir 2018

Adelaide Hills, SA

95pts Adelaide Hills Wine Show | Gold Medal Adelaide Hills Wine Show | 91pts James Halliday | 5 red star Halliday rated winery

This wine’s not resting on its laurels, even though it has many. Last year’s vintage was one of Halliday’s Top 100 Wines of 2017, and someone else called it one of the best value pinots of the year. Eat that, world. Stock up, mofo. It’s a skilfully handled, fruity, tangy, spicy pinot, with tannins that slide smoother than a pilates bed. There’s no doubting this will be one of the pinots we talk about in a few months, bemoaning the fact that we didn’t double down on our order. 

YOU’D PAY $22 full price.

Navarro Correas Colección Privada Malbec 2017

Mendoza, AR

90pts James Suckling

Finding a decent tasting malbec for under 10 bucks is rare enough, let alone a legit Argentine number like this. Ripe damson plum and redcurrant flavours back up its intense crimson colour, while there’s a fresh and juicy finish, equally packed with soft-mouth-filling tannins.  The grapes grow in a mountainous region at an altitude of 650-1060 metres, and the nightly temperature drop means the grapes mature slowly, creating a vino with more aroma and buckets of flavour. The 2016 was hugely popular, and so it should be when Mendoza malbec this good flies in from the Americas for under a tenner. This 2017 is set to fly out as suddenly as it flew in.

YOU’D PAY $22 full price.

BLACK MARKET Chardonnay 2016

Margaret River, SA

This Margaret River chardy is like the convergence of old school butterballs and lean modernity. It’s the embodiment of balance, through and through: part barrel ferment, part stainless steel; equal parts vibrancy and richness. The palate is all about apricot jam, fresh parmesan and a lively, citrusy finish. You’re never far from comforting hints of brioche and almond either. It’s a definite crowd pleaser, and a great way to get your chardy-loving friends around the table - whatever style they prefer. 

YOU’D PAY $20 full price.
