The team at Dalwhinnie are very excited to present to you the new vintage releases of the Dalwhinnie Moonambel range, the Dalwhinnie ‘Eagle Series’ Shiraz and last but not least the timber boxed magnums of Dalwhinnie Shiraz 2005. This is a first for us and exclusive to our mail order clients. We are also very excited to present our ‘Vintage Release’ newsletter to you in both hard copy and electronic format.

The Pyrenees wine region is really quite unique, if you line up a dozen or more vintages of one variety, you will be rewarded with consistent wines that continually reflect the exceptional quality of the extremely low yielding vineyard at Dalwhinnie. In other words, serious wine.

Once again an early vintage with harvest commencing the 3rd week in February and finishing in late March. The growing season proved to be very good with ample rain and moderate temperatures. Some higher temperatures developed post Christmas but generally the ripening conditions were outstanding. We are thrilled to present to you some very stylish 2007 reds and an extraordinary Dalwhinnie Moonambel Chardonnay 2006. The Dalwhinnie ‘Eagle Series’ Shiraz 2003 looks magnificent in all its glory and the magnums of Dalwhinnie Shiraz 2005 will cellar beautifully, to be savoured in a few years time. Enjoy.
