The colour is almost opaque, black purple mauve colour with black purple hue. The nose is quite perfumed, with violet top note, followed by ripe raspberry, spice and confectionary. On the palate the tannins are quite tight – over a very strong spicy back palate. The fruit is subdued with dry tannins persisting.

It is always easy to pick out the Blewitt Springs Grenache given its flamboyant, jammy blueberry and black raspberry style. The full-bodied, rich, showy 2005 Grenache Blewitt Springs is deeper-colored than the Clarendon Hills and Hickinbotham as well as super-pure.

Buying At Auction?

Your Questions, Answered

What do you need from me to get started?

We will need you to confirm that you are over 18 (for obvious reasons!) and to open an account by registering on the site. This will include provision of credit card details for any eventual purchases. You will also need to sign that you have read the terms and conditions.

How many wines are in each Lot?

You will see the quantity (number of bottles) stated above the price. Please note that the bid-price is per bottle so you will need to multiply the price by the number of bottles in the lot to calculate the total price of the lot.

Can I cancel my bid if I change my mind?

All bids are final - please think before you confirm your bid.

How much is the Buyers' Commission?

We have an extremely competitive buyers' commission of 16.5% (GST inclusive). This will be added to the final winning price of your Lot at the end of the auction.

What are your freight charges?

Please see our Delivery Policy for full details relating to freight.

Is there a Guarantee on my wine?

Under Australian law, consumer guarantees do not apply to goods purchased at auction - all such purchases are at the risk of the Buyer. We will always provide as much detail as we can as to the visual condition and provenance of each Lot, however this is done so as a guide rather than as a guarantee.
