A little birthday treat…
Drinking: RK Beechworth Shiraz (2009).
This Shiraz is like a little oasis – it’s not something you’re likely to find without the help of a charming and well-informed Vintage Cellar boy.
The reason being- this wine is a limited edition, made exclusively for Vintage Cellars by boutique wine producer Rick Kinzbrunner (Giaconda Vineyard)
The RK’s very clean and uninformative label hardly does this wine justice. The flavour is an exquisite mix. It has the delightful taste & colouring of purple plums, red berries and something slightly spicy or astringent- like eucalytpus. In conjunction with it’s very silky texture, this Shiraz stands fast as a very sexy bottle.
I thoroughly enjoyed every sip.
As is the case with a lot of boutique releases, you’ll have to splash out a little bit for this one – it retails for about $50 – $60 per bottle depending whether you purchase across 6 or 12. Check it out at the Vintage Cellars’ website. This one has very limited stock so I’d take a peek sooner, rather than later.

Sharing is Caring…
This is such a lovely wine, I’d recommend saving it for someone special to drink it with.
For me, that’s half the fun.
