Why do we love this case?

Why just have Christmas when you can have Mofomas? As they say, Mofomas is not a time of year but a state of mind. You know you’re having Mofomas when the wine on the table is supremely pleasing, and all you have to think about is which food to have next. The swirling chaos of presents and people comes and goes, but the superlative feeling of satisfaction can’t be shaken. There’s empty bottles of bubbly (white and red) on the table, whites and pink in the ice bucket and a few reds in decanters or ready and waiting. Welcome to Mofomas.

Each festive case contains exactly what you’ll need to get that Mofomas feeling, including a bottle of each of the following wines:

Haselgrove wines deliver time and time again. As Master of Wine Ned Goodwin said of the prior vintage, “tannin management is among Haselgrove's calling cards and this cuvee proves it in spades!” 2017 is silkier, even plusher and more fruit-driven than the ‘16. Dark fruits, chocolate and Medjool dates with McLaren Vale’s signature set of spices and black pepper. Wonderful structure, obviously. The broad-shouldered bottle sets the scene, and the wine itself well and truly lives up to expectation.

There’s a lot going on here. Deep, and with much promise for the future. This is the one to keep while you check out all the others in the pack, as it’ll knit itself together even more over the coming months and years. Loaded with black plum and raspberry lollies, some chocolate-dipped tobacco and Szechuan pepper. Silky to start, but broadens its drying tendrils across your tongue, bundled up in fruit and spice. As Eddie the Wine Guy says, “it’s for when you want to show your straight-laced friend a bit of a wild time. They’re not quite ready for Rainbow Serpent - this is your Merideth.” He’s talking Victorian festivals, in case you missed the metaphor. I know that’s a bit parochial, but it’s a good analogy for those who get it - so… worth it.

Last vintage of this was Tyson Stelzer’s Prosecco of the Year in his Australian Sparkling Report 2018, and he’s pretty much considered the authority on fizz in Australia (he also produces an annual Champagne Guide). Of the 2017, he said: “Prosecco is all too often neutral and simple, but this vintage cuvée captures character and fruit expression and frames it in a fine, creamy structure. Tangy kaffir lime, crunchy granny smith apple, exotic star fruit and white pepper coalesce in a wine of persistence and appeal. It sings with the high notes of King Valley, the prosecco capital of Australia, with zingy acidity taking command of a long and lively finish.” Don’t tell Tyson (yet) but we reckon the 2018 is better again. touch more intensity, a lick more creaminess. The same delicious fruit characters, showing why King Valley and D’Sas are the benchmark.

Capel Vale really can’t put a foot wrong, and this 2017 vintage of their wonderful cabernet backs up that sentiment. 2017 was cooler, resulting in lower alcohol wines that bring back a real classic vibe. It’s the grape variety Margaret River is most known for, and with lovely aromas of blackcurrant, a little bit of spice and tobacco, it’s ready to roll, but will also sit and evolve happily in a cool cellar for a decade or so.

‘From the edge of a country on the edge of the earth’ is their tagline, and here is a beacon to stop you in your wine-loving tracks and make you look twice. From vines on the edge of the small island in the South Pacific, silhouetted by the Southern Alps, comes wine on the cutting edge. And if I was a lighthouse keeper, I’d want something good in my glass on dark and stormy nights, so lucky these guys have come to the rescue. With a solid score from Sam Kim and a package this good, send a message in a bottle home to the folks. With all the spiced dark cherry and slightly herbal earthiness you might look for, along with silkiness and approachability, you’ll be thankful you saw the light.

Since winning Australia’s most prestigious winemaking award, the Jimmy Watson, in 2009, winemaker Jeremy Gordon hasn’t slipped a millimetre. 2014 saw Amelia Park named Margaret River Winery of the Year at the Melbourne International Wine Comp, and in 2015 Jeremy was a finalist for International Red Winemaker of the Year at the International Wine Challenge. Amelia Park bought their own vineyard in 2013, and the quality of wine has only improved accordingly. This 2017 shiraz has heaps of blueberry, red fruits and spice, along with licorice, strawberry and earthiness. It’s at the very cutting edge of syrah meets shiraz styling, thanks obviously to terroir but also to smart crafting and some whole bunch fermentation. Very clever stuff, at once complex and easy to enjoy for its layers of charm.

This riesling is super fresh and zesty, from free run Watervale juice. It’s packed with all the citrusy things, with classic Clare crispness. But this is backed up by flinty mineral finesse and a soft richness. Atlas are a staple here at the ‘fo, precisely because they keep upping the ante on wines like this one.

Feeling royally thirsty? Then maybe you’ve got a hard-earned thirst that’s fit for a king. Still waiting for the coronation ceremony? Then let’s all raid the Cellar of the Princes, because you know dad’s been hoarding the good stuff. Indeed, this is from the dress circle of Châteauneuf-du-Pape, from vineyards in a 10km radius. Basically, this is pink Châteauneuf-du-Pape. So whether you’re a prince, princess or pope-in-waiting, we’ve got your wine to wait with right here. This wine stacks its cards up to be fresher than… well, a well-known prince. Grapes are destemmed and pressed immediately, so no stemmy characters letting the team down. It’s then fermented at cool temperatures to retain all the aromatics. Then it’s aged in stainless tanks for three months to tighten everything up and let it settle. Then it’s bottled under screwcap and on the fastest intercontinental boat possible, direct to mofo mouths.

Silver medal Royal Queensland Wine Show 2018

If you’re an Adelaide stalwart, the Tolley name will be synonymous with brandy from way back. Simon’s Great, Great… GREAT Grandfather Albion Tolley did indeed start a wine and spirit trading business in 1874, so descendant Simon has the fire in his blood. Graduating as a viticulturalist himself in 1999, his wine truly is made in the vineyard. His vineyard consultancy came first, followed by 27ha of Adelaide Hills vines, and in 2015 his own wine label was launched. This is a natural and considered progression to the glass, in my mind. The savvy vines are clones of those from the famous Château d'Yquem, but here expressed as a dry white wine. The result is a lime-meets-tropical, fresh and layered savvy that is completely self-assured. Impeccable balance, weighted by history and styled to modernity. Fashionable or not, it’s a lovely drink.

Rob Dolan just scored ‘Newcomer Winery of the Year’ from James Halliday, and this chardy is a brilliant example why that award was bestowed upon him. Ultimately it’s a fresh and mineral style, but with all of 2016’s ripe fruit - rockmelon, citrus and stone fruits - it’s fleshy as well as fine-boned. Peachy keen, you might say. Makes you hanker for the weekend. That kind of keen. Don’t let us stop you. It’s the weekend somewhere, by some definition.

If you’re a botrytis semillon kinda wine, you wanna win trophies. And if there’s one trophy you want in your pool room, it’s the one from the Rutherglen Show. The ‘Best Sweet White’ trophy, to be precise. Yep, you want to beat all the other sweet whites around, including your iconic sibling who’s twice the price. Good start then. Good finish too. Yep, you can expect all the tropical fruit, toasty-nutty oak and creamy, chocolatey flavours the best botrytis dessert wines rock. But there’s supreme balance and freshness, which is the key to truly great sweet wine. Everything in abundance, and nothing out of place. Still easy to over-indulge. Must be getting close to Christmas.
