Pegagus Bay 2014 Pinot Noir

Top tier New Zealand Pinot producer!

2nd Jun 2019 | New Arrivals

$59 per bottle (usually $69 per bottle) - limited time only!

Bordeaux has its 1855 Classification, Burgundy its appellation hierarchy, and, since 2008, New Zealand has had The Great New Zealand Pinot Noir Classification. Awarded by Matthew Jukes and Tyson Stelzer, this system is a rolling classification based on an average assessment of the five most recent vintage releases. It has been purposefully devised to highlight producers who make consistently excellent wines year after year.

Joining the ranks of 5 star wineries this year is Pegasus Bay. An incredibly prestigious achievement as only 7 out of 512 producers made the cut for this top tier ranking. To celebrate we are offering a special price on the 2014 Pegasus Bay Pinot Noir for a limited time only!

Ninth generation winemaker Dominique Portet, quite simply, is international winemaking royalty. From a winemaking family that stretches back 10 generations in Bordeaux, his father Andre Portet was vineyard and winery manager of Château Lafite Rothschild in Pauillac. A tenacious search for grape growing terroir to rival that of his native Bordeaux led Dominique to the cool climate of the Yarra Valley where he founded his winery in 2000. His son Ben now heads the winemaking team whose own resume boasts time spent with the likes of Bordeaux’s Château Beychevelle, Champagnes Louis Roederer and the Rhone Valleys M. Chapoutier. Ben joins us this Wednesday, 5 June for what is sure to be an incredible evening of tasting and discussion around both new and old world techniques, traditions and terroirs.

Beef Cheeks

Perfect for the slow cooker!

29th May 2019 | News

If there is anything good about winter, it is getting out that well-used cast iron pot to simmer away for hours on the stove, filling the house with a rich, comforting fragrance while rain pelts down outside. Beef Cheeks are the cheek muscle of cows and they are a very tough cut of meat. It's a budget cut that needs to be cooked long and slow to make it tender. It absorbs the flavours of braising liquid well and when you cut into it, it is stringy, almost like pulled pork or brisket.

Four Pillars 2019 Bloody Shiraz Gin

1 June 2019

28th May 2019 | Tasting & Events

The very popular Bloody Shiraz Gin from Four Pillars will be available from our Wine Loft on Saturday,1 June - the official launch date of the 2019 vintage! It has sold out two years in a row, with very limited amount being made. Don't miss out this year! Pre-orders are welcome - call the Loft on 08 9284 5176 or email

The 2018 release had great depth of colour and was much richer and more vibrant than 2017, carrying really beautiful purples and reds to bottle. Flavour-wise it showed dark fruit, red berry and spice. There was also plenty of that classic Yarra Shiraz white pepper. And of course a lovely ginny character carried those grape aromas, making it unmistakably gin. The palate was lovely and sweet, with long juniper and spice characters to finish.
