Nothing over $30 bucks here, and a 94 pointer at less than $21. How low can you go? Try S$13.50!

Continuing with a dissection of the Vineyards Direct liquidation sale and all the caveats that go with that namely, that these are case prices and that they may very well be sold-out now or soon. Get cracking to sam@vineyardsdirect.com.sg if you’re in any way interested. Can’t imagine these prices being repeated any time soon.

2008 / Redheads Studios / Yard Dog / McLaren Vale / White / S$13.50 – Halliday rates at 87, drink to 2011, RRP A$12.50. Forget the quality, (which is still 4 star) look at the price!

2007 / Tahbilk / Nagambie Lakes / Viognier / S$17.90 – Halliday 89, Oliver 89, so almost a 4.5 star wine for under $20 bucks. Drink now, RRP A$19.

2007 / Grant Burge / Summers / Barossa Valley / Chardonnay / S$18.70 – Halliday rates 89 points, drink to 2013. Oliver rates 77 points (ouch!). RRP A$24.

2008 / Trevor Jones / Boots / Eden Valley / Riesling / S$20.50 – Halliday rates at 94 points. Shall I say that again in case you didn’t notice – Halliday rates at 94 points. Drink to 2017, RRP A$17.50.

2008 / Paracombe / Adelaide Hills / Pinot Gris / S$21.00 – Halliday rates 89 points, drink to 2012, RRP A$19.

2007 / Paracombe / Adelaide Hills / Chardonnay / S$22.10 – Halliday 90 points, drink to 2013, RRP A$21.

2006 / Cascabel / Fleurieu / Shiraz / S$23.80 – Halliday 89 points, drink to 2014 with a RRP of A$33.

2006 / Paracombe / Adelaide Hills / Shiraz Viognier / S$23.80 – Halliday rates 92 points, drink to 2014, RRP A$21.

2007 / Paracombe / Adelaide Hills / Sauvignon Blanc / S$24.90 – Halliday 94 points, drink now, RRP A$21.

NV / Grant Burge / Barossa Valley / Sparkling Shiraz Cabernet / S$25.50 – Halliday rates 87 points, RRP A$31.

2006 / Cascabel / McLaren Vale / Monastrell / S$27.80 – James Halliday rates it 88 points but with a RRP of A$44, who’s complaining? Drink to 2013.

2006 / The Colonial Estate / Etranger / Barossa Valley / Cabernet / S$28.30 – Halliday rates 90 points, drink to 2016, RRP A$33.

2007 / The Colonial Estate / Expatria / Barossa Valley / Semillon / S$28.60 – Halliday 91 points, drink to 2013, RRP A$35.

2006 / The Colonial Estate / Eclaireur Old Vine / Barossa Valley / Grenache / S$28.60 – Halliday rates 91 points, drink to 2014, RRP A$33.

Off the shelf – a random selection of wines on sale at various retail outlets. This one from Giant.

NV / Banrock Station / Sparkling White Shiraz / S$30.50 – I can’t find a rating on this wine but I can tell you that you can get it for A$8.95 down under. Big on Mother’s Day I’m guessing. Now, scan up the page and see what else you can get for S$30.50.

“Wine consumption in Asia is increasing four times faster than the world average and is expected to continue in the next five years” – Robert Beynat quoted in the FT, 19-6-10.

Wine quotations

"A good bottle of wine contains more philosophy than all the books in the world" - Louis Pasteur

“The unexacting palates of the masses…are content to ask no question [on origin] so long as a florin or half-a-crown will purchase a roomy flagon of strong , full-bodied, fruity wine” – CE Hawker writing in 1907
