Newsletter - May 2017 - Wine Wanted, Aussie Wine Month, Burgundy 2015 & Barolo Masterclass

by Simon Evans | May 19, 2017
We’ve just wrapped a huge auction for the month of May, with more than 3,600 lots on offer. In a fitting nod to Aussie Wine Month, more than 4,500 bottles of Aussie wine were sold.
2017 has broken records across the board for MW Wines, and buyer demand is insatiable; we are seeing, on average, better than 65% lot clearance rates, and unprecedented appetite for all types of wines particularly Premium Australian Wine and Burgundy. 
Following the broad success of May, we are already seeking consignments for our June auction. We accept consignments of any size – even just a single bottle.

For more information about selling your wine at auction, you can download our Vendor Information Pack here – or give us a call on 9419 6990.
We are please to bring you our first major offer of the much anticipated 2015 vintage Burgundies on a pre-arrival basis.

We know from tasting some of these from the barrel last year that this is definitely a vintage to be excited about. The offer also includes some 2016 Chablis from Maison Patrick Piuze. The offer can be found HERE and available tasting notes HERE.
This week we hosted a Barolo and Barbaresco Masterclass, featuring 14 wines including ones from legendary producers Giacomo Conterno and Bruno Giacosa.

Our host, David Ridge, guided us through the communes of Barbaresco, Castiglione Faletto, Serralunga, Monforte d’Alba, Barolo and Lar Mara in what was a fascinating journey. Thank you to all who attended.
Next Thursday evening, the 25th of May, from 6:00pm to 8:00pm we are excited to bring you a premium Australian new release tasting to celebrate Aussie Wine Month. We are featuring the newly released big gun reds from Moss Wood and Cullen, the superb 2015 Giaconda Chardonnay and a fantastic range of other Aussie premium wines.

This is a free event held at MW Wines in Collingwood, but RSVPs are essential as places are limited and the tasting is expecting a large response. To register your interest, complete this form here.
