Not heard from us since yesterday...?
Volume of traffic fried the server last night and if you wrote me between 6 and 11 pm last night, chances are I did not get your email.
If so please drop me a note and yell at me - I promise I will hear you this time...

For Advance Bookings:
|There are certain brands which are inextricably linked to what it means to be Australian. I reckon the collective Aussie consciousness will forever be in therapy over the loss of Vegemite to American-owned Kraft Brands, and even for me as an Antipodean interloper of sorts - I reach mentally for my quiet, happy place every time I see Britney staggering out of the Starbucks on Sunset Boulevard in Aussie Ugg Boots with matching muffin-top and short-shorts .
I guess the reality of todays version of the brave new world is that computer nerds were right. We are all resolutely and forever interconnected, and I should just move on and change the channel, but if anything should ever happen to the ownership of Treasury Estates leaving it named something like Treasury Tiger Estates instead - many of us may never fully recover from the loss ...
For the moment at least, things remain true-blue in that particular neck of the woods with some new and improved nips and tucks to the Treasury wine inventory. This saw the introduction of a Shiraz to the legendary Black Label Series - which up to now has been all about the Cabernet.
With Halliday`s 96/100 rating ringing from the rooftops - we took a good hard look at it last month and immediately grabbed everything our spies could secure - sadly with little remaining after the big name Aussie retailers had seen the value and got heavilly involved...
All viticultural racism towards Coonawarra being only about Cabernet is guarenteed to vanish with the first waft of top-notes laden with spice, black mulberries and sweet cedar. The palate is broad, luscious and far more generous than it should be at this price point, and with a length to match that just will not quit.
I recall once being aggravated by a starving vendor who challenged me that to refuse his product was un-Australian. I cant help feeling that he may have had a point after all when considering something as exceptional as this...
