This item contains 23-bottles of Lot 347 | 2022 Limestone Coast Sauvignon Blanc and 1 bottle of 2016 Blackbird Napa Valley Contrarian Proprietary Red. A stunning value given the Contrarian is $180/bottle at the winery.
Complex and expressive with aromas of black currant, cherry and black périgold truffle, Contrarian is ripe to impress with its notable density, tight tannins and illustrious texture. With a long finish of black licorice, blackberries, plum and toffee, the vintage evolves tremendously on the palate. 2016 Blackbird Napa Valley Contrarian Proprietary Red

The Aussies continue to deliver some of the most insane values I've seen. Lot 347 | 2022 Limestone Coast Sauvignon Blanc
I loved it from first sip, jumped on the deal, and, as fates would have it, it recently scored 93-points from Wine Orbit; here's what they had to say: Pristine and beautifully lifted on the nose showing crunchy apple, sweet basil and kaffir lime notes, followed by an intensely expressed palate that's juicy and lively. Varietally expressive with loads of upfront fruit flavours, making it highly enjoyable. At its best: now to 2026.
Hands down, if you love a New Zealand-styled Sauvignon Blanc, you're gonna love this.
A fresh, bright, zesty wine with aromas of lemon blossoms bolstered by apples and kaffir lime with papaya, banana, and tropical fruit pinned underneath. Juicy and softer than expected on entry, fresh zippy acidity jumps up on the backend amidst vanilla and orange creamsicle. The finish is mouthwatering and fresh with notes of lemon and lime. This, my friends, is oyster wine - time to stock up for spring/summer!
