  • Review: Phillip White 94++ points!
    “It has plenty of spicy piquancy, from its oak, but there’s no chance of that carpentry getting much of a say in. Kahlua and licorice, plum liqueur, Cherry Heering and deep framboise and cassis liqueur swim lazily about in its incredibly intense bouquet; there’s even that wicked black smell of freshly-polished Spanish leather, like great tempranillo. The palate is an unctuous anointing oil from some heavenly religion not yet invented. While it’s in your mouth it’s all velvety and thick; as it leaves it gives the mouth a creamy coating of bitter chocolate and cherry dessert, and the breath a drying adult tang of alcohol, as if you’d just swallowed a Kahlua and vodka cocktail, with maybe a dribble of Campari. I have never had a wine like it. It is not porty, but more like some of those devilish coffee/chocolate/orange liqueur cocktails I blended in the Exeter as a kid. Magic. Hot. Scary. Impossible.” 

  • Phillip White, 1st August 2007

    The 2005 Alice’s Shiraz spent 28 months in seasoned American oak hogsheads. Aromas of smoke, asphalt, meat, game, truffle, and blueberry soar from the glass. On the palate this full-bodied Shiraz is velvety-textured, layered, spicy, and richly fruity. While not quite as riveting as the 2004 edition, it has enough structure to evolve for several years and should drink well through 2025. Greenock Creek Vineyard & Cellars, owned by Michael and Annabelle Waugh, remains one of South Australia’s iconic wineries. Start with a great terroir, add in old vine material and meticulous winemaking, and end with extraordinary results.

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.
