Cabernet Sauvignon is the most widely planted grape variety in the world and Coonawarra, a small strip of land in the heart of the Limestone Coast in South Australia, is one of the few regions where free draining soils and maritime ripening conditions achieve the ultimate varietal expression.  Coonawarra Cabernet Sauvignon has the savoury elegance and structure of a Bordeaux yet the fruit purity, ripeness and concentration of Australia.  The award-winning Coonawarra ‘clarets’ of the 1960s through to the 1990s represent a golden era for the region when legendary medium bodied wines with fine acid and tannin structure aged for 20 years or more.  Coonawarra’s current winemakers are working with the benefit of mature vines, modern, innovative viticultural practices and refined oak use to create today’s modern wine styles.

Raïdis Estate is a boutique estate in the heart of the Coonawarra.  It was started by Chris and Fran Raïdis more than 40 years ago, and today it is owned and operated by the next generation of the Raidis family, Stevo and Emma.  They live their dream every day making premium, minimal intervention wines using sustainable vineyard practices.

The Billy is a totally opaque black / dark red colour with a dark red hue. Scented aromatics of ripe blackcurrant and mulberries laced with cedar and tobacco characters prevail, followed by black olives, mint, violets and dried herbs.

Taste Profile of this Wine

The Winecroft Wine Style Meter is a key tool to match you with the wines we believe that you’ll love. We do this by matching the style of each wine to your personal taste profile, which is established with the science-based Winecroft taste test.

The needle shows the style of the wine:

  • Light: These are delicate wines which are easy to drink.  Whites will be dry, crisp and zesty.  Reds will be paler in colour with lighter tannins (tannins create a drying sensation in your mouth).
  • Medium-bodied: These wines offer up loads of fruit flavours with a balance of zesty acidity and tannins (in the reds).
  • Full-bodied: Red will be bigger, bolder and have higher levels of tannin. Whites will be rich and creamy,

The Wine Style Meter is a quick, clear and simple way of gauging whether you’ll like a particular wine based on your personal wine profile.

Winecroft Style Meter

 

 

Our ongoing quest at Winecroft is to do away with winespeak so we can talk clearly about the wine. One of the ways we achieve this is by using our Wine Style Meter, a key tool to match you with new wines we believe that you’ll love. We do this by matching the style of each wine on our list to your personal taste profile, which is established with the science-based Winecroft taste test and will evolve as you taste new wines.

The needle on the Wine Style Meter points you towards the following wines:

Once you settle the needle on the style of wine you like, our Wine Style Meter is a quick, clear and simple way of gauging whether you’ll like a particular wine from our wonderful winelist.

 

Wines each month

Each month we will recommend 4 superb new wines to try, individually matched to your latest taste profile. As a new Winecroft member, you will receive these 4 wines, delivered to your door.  In subsequent months, you will have full control over the wines you receive. You may find your wine preferences evolve over time, you would prefer more red than white, or you decide last month’s recommended wines weren’t quite right for you. In which case, you can update your taste profile and change or add to the recommended wines each month. And if you enjoyed one of the bottles so much, you can always order more.  You may, on the other hand, find you are just too busy to think about it, in which case you can opt to receive the wines hand-picked for your profile.

The one thing that won’t change is that our members will always be drinking top-end wines that are on wine lists of the world’s best restaurants, for typically less than a third of the price.

(Quick note – for new members who have just made your first order, when you look at your order details you will see next month’s recommendation.  Initially, this will contain the same wines as your first order but don’t worry, the Winecroft team will be working behind the scenes to quickly update this with 4 great new recommended wines based on your profile.)
