Yes, this is the most expensive wine in my portfolio and no, I don’t expect that all of my customers will be chafing at the bit to get it…but maybe you know someone who might be interested. It’s not a change of direction for Tiger Wines, but when I was offered the opportunity to get 12 bottles, through my Hickinbotham Clarendon Vineyards connection with Jackson Family Wines, I jumped at it.
Here’s a few things to consider:
It’s Robert Parker 99 points.
It was on very tight allocation in the US, i.e. one needed to apply to buy it retail. No point in applying now as allocations have closed. Singapore was allocated just 12 bottles. There’s 4 left.
It’s US$375 retail there.
It comes direct to Tiger Wines from Jackson Family Wines (JFW) rather than through a parallel import.
A lesser-rated vintage is currently on sale in Singapore for S$710.
I have 4 bottles left in stock in Singapore at S$585 ea. including GST.
So many ratings!
No lack of information on this wine and all of it good. Maybe that shouldn’t be a surprise as Chris Carpenter plays a hand in the making of this wine and he’s got a few 99 & 100 point Robert Parker Cabernets up his sleeve already at Jackson Family Wine’s Lokoya and Cardinale vineyards.
Richard Hemming of jancisrobinson.com gives it 17/20. From robertparker.com, Lisa Perotti-Brown gives it 90. Sells in the US at US$75. See below for the ratings of Huon Hooke (96), Gary Walsh (94), Halliday (94) and James Suckling (94).
In stock and ready to go. Enjoy!
