Aaaannnnd that’s a wrap on our annual Shiraz Festival pop up two weekends ago, and we couldn’t be happier. Firstly, the sun was shining, yes… shining and warm…. who knew?!. Which meant that we welcomed heaps of very happy festival goers inside the winery shed, outside at barrels and crates by the fire on a magical winters day. The festival saw many old and new faces, so a big THANKYOU to those of you who came along and joined us.
It’s Wine Time
Blow up the balloons, pull the party poppers it’s time to get your celebration on as we finally announced the release of the 2106 NEW VINTAGE Wines. The demand in 2015 kind of took us by surprise and saw us sell out of all wines by about April of this year. But it is with great pleasure that we introduce you to these guys again, because they are back, and judging by the reaction we have had at the Shiraz festival and the tastings we have done with some of Wine Store partners – people are super happy with all of the new releases. So to get you re acquainted, please allow us to introduce you to…
2016 Sauvignon Blanc
A refreshingly delicate wine, bursting with zest of honeydew and citrus characteristics, underlined by an impressive minerality. Gather your friends and get your taste buds ready for this lip smacking white.
2106 Pinot Gris
Try some small batch magic in this estate grown BAIE Wines best seller. This wine packs rich, creamy honey and pear flavours, with a full ripe palate and firm acid balance. A delight for the already converted and sure to attract some new devotees.
There’s a reason why we’ve been seduced by Rose’ in recent years, and you’ve found it all right here in this bottle. The 2016 BAIE Rose’ delivers delicate flavours of strawberries and red fruit with a delicious dry savoury finish.
Have you joined the Tribe?
Now with all of the new vintage wines on the website and ready to be delivered, this is the perfect time to join the BAIE Wine Tribe free online.
Why – we hear you ask – it’s simple – if you become a Tribe member we want to say thanks in every way possible, so when you order a 12 bottle case of any of the new vintage wines, you not only receive free delivery anywhere in Aus, you will (drum roll please) activate first of many of the Wine Tribe rewards, which is a $50 voucher from your chosen partner store (Stone and Grain, Barwon Heads Wine Store, Bottles and Barrels). That’s it – it’s that easy – you’re welcome!
Keep Up With What’s New
Just so you get the sneaky heads up before anyone else – given we are celebrating the new vintage release in July, we are giving away a twin pack (VALUE $50) of one of the new vintage wines each week for 3 weeks. This week it will be a twin pack of the stunning 2016 Sauvignon Blanc. Check out the details on Facebook and Instagram this Saturday. In addition we have our first new vintage tasting for anyone in Geelong, who hasn’t had a chance to try the new wines at Bottles and Barrels this Friday 15th July 5.30pm – 7pm. And to make the night extra dapper… anyone who would like a free suit measurement can hook up with the guys from Bellington Estate who will be there too!
What an awesome July here at BAIE Wines – Shiraz Festival and New Vintage releases hurrah – thanks for being part of the fun!
