Every month, I cast my eye over the Twenty Five Doors wine club and nominates my ‘keen eye pick‘. These are unique offers directly from wineries that aren’t available anywhere else.
Pack of the Month
Punt Road “I See The Future”
2017 Airlie Bank Franc x 3
2017 Punt Road Gamay x 3
Punt Road wines are terrific value. Their Airlie Bank label is a gem with great wines at great prices. The Cabernet franc takes a refreshing nouveau approach with a touch of funky (whole bunch) ferment adding character. The Gamay is similarly bright and breezy with loads of red fruits and savoury spice. Both are designed for instant pleasure with a light chill and a basket full of picnic goodies. Five stars on the quality/value quotient.

A Single Bottle Worth Your Attention
2016 Soul Growers 106 Vines Mourvèdre
$110 per bottle
Mourvèdre is all too often overlooked in favour of its Rhône siblings, shiraz and grenache. Here it flies solo – from 130 year old vines – soaring to new vinous heights. Wait a decade if you can – or partner with a rustic cassoulet.
The Twenty Five Doors vision is a personal connection between every wine lover and their favourite wineries. They partner with wineries to give you access to personal cellar door wine experiences and incredible wine directly from source. These are limited offers for members only. Visit their website to learn more. Use the code ‘thewineman’ to become a once-off member and buy from the wine club.
