Tiger Wines latest price list, new wines and a suggestion.

Standard

Tiger Wines latest pricelist is attached. Please note that stock levels change daily.

Next airfreight is scheduled for March with wines expected to be ready for delivery in Singapore in week beginning 19 March. Last orders 12 March.

Check the link below to access the list.

What’s new on the list?

The full range of Hickinbotham Clarendon Vineyard for the 2015 vintage has been added. There’s a Silver Medal winning Riesling from Laurel Bank, and the 2017 releases from Two Tonne Tasmania are ready for pre-order. There’s also a couple of 2013s from Craiglee and a great Shiraz from Provenance in Geelong.

What’s not on the list but will be coming soon is a new and expanded range of Jackson Family Wines including very small quantities of La Jota and Mt Brave Cabernets from Napa Valley, and some new Oregon Pinots from Gran Moraine and Penner-Ash.

It’s probably timely to explain a little more about how Tiger Wines works.

Well, more like a wine club than a typical on-line retailer. Loyal clients get first look at wines that are in short supply and heavy demand. If I only get 6 bottles of that 99 point wine, then my best clients are going to get first chance to buy, and that means that if you are only a subscriber to the website, you’ll never see those wines. So…if you live in Singapore (I can only sell wines in Singapore) and are happy to get a direct email about once a week, then send an email to ‘tigerwines’…using the @singnet.com.sg address with PLEASE ADD in the subject. You can unsubscribe at any time and personal data is not shared with anybody.

Cheers!

Brown Magpie “Paraparap Reserve” Geelong Pinot Noir 2013

Standard

If you’ll excuse the pun, Brown Magpie wines tend to fly under the radar even in Australia. They have an extremely loyal following in Geelong and that’s where most of their wines get sold, but it’s not a well-known brand in other parts of Australia. Tiger Wines is the only distributor they have outside of Australia so you get to see what few others do elsewhere.

Some of you purchased this wine back in March 2015 when it was first released at A$40, but I purchased this stock only last year when it was re-released at A$60. Hence the jump in price here to S$73.

Halliday suggests it should be at least 5 years before opening, ie. 2018, so you should still put it away for another year if you have the patience.

From my memory of drinking this wine, it is a big pinot, not unlike in style to the pinots that come from Brian Franklin at Apsley Gorge. And like Apsley Gorge, a big decant is highly recommended.

Enjoy!
