Domaine A now available retail in Singapore

Standard

During 2011, Tiger Wines introduced a range of Tasmanian wines into Singapore that had never been seen here before – Pressing Matters, Spring Vale, and Waterton. Now there’s Domaine A as the first new listing for 2012. Domaine A has been shipped to Singapore before but it quickly disappeared into investment holdings and was not generally offered at retail. Well, that’s changed as Tiger Wines has a good supply of Domaine A’s current range of Cabernet Sauvignon and Pinot Noir.

On offer now is the 2005 Domaine A Cabernet Sauvignon which despite the vintage, is the current release. Wine Advocate gives it 94 points (“outstanding”) and Langtons has promoted the Domaine A Cabernet Sauvignon from “Distinguished” to “Excellent”. This is from Domaine A’s latest newsletter:

This wine retails in Australia at A$70 (I saw it in Dan Murphys at that price last month) and here in Singapore it is offered at S$88 (incl gst)

2005 / Domaine A / Tasmania / Cabernet Sauvignon / S$88 at Tiger Wines

James Halliday 93 points (“highly recommended”), Jeremy Oliver 94 points (“gold medal”), Wine Advocate 94 points (“outstanding’”). Drinking to 2025.

Order from tigerwines@singnet.com.sg

Domaine A also makes Australia’s best Sauvignon Blanc, Lady A, and certainly its most expensive (A$60), but those in the know snapped up the stocks on arrival so it’s now completely sold out in Singapore.
