Kate Hill Tasmania Riesling 2015


Kate’s rieslings are just so easy to drink…crisp, clean, not cloying and a refreshing change from chardonnay and sauvignon blanc.

I’ve still got plenty of bottles in Melbourne that can come up in the early June airfeight.

No minimum purchase, one bottle is fine.

You might also like to try Kate’s 2016 Riesling. 97 points in the latest Halliday book, and the highest rated Tasmanian riesling listed. Going for S$47.

La Jota Howell Mountain Napa Valley Merlot 2015


94, 93 Wine Spectator…same price here as in the US

I’ve got 16 bottles of the 2015 La Jota Howell Mountain Merlot for sale here in Singapore at S$128 all up (alcohol tax, gst and delivery included) which makes it about the same as the US cellar door price of US$85.

Tiger Wines is the authorised Singapore distributor for some of Jackson Family Wines premium selections so these wine have come straight from JFW in Sonoma to Chai Chee by airfreight.

In stock and ready to go, no minimum purchase.
