    Closure:
    A member of our PWS Sydney team, Pat has chosen this for his Staff Pick 2021, here's why:

    When I think of Christmas in Sydney, my mind goes to days spent at the beach. Sun soaked and full of Coles salads, cold meats and Riesling. However this year, the way the weather is shaping up, it's starting to look like snow on the beach could be a likely outcome. That’s why something richer, more voluptuous and hedonistic is called for. The 2016 San Filippo Brunello di Montalcino is a classic wine from a classic region. Brunello has long been a favourite wine at royal dinner tables and its easy to see why.  With smoked cedar, mahogany and teak followed by dark fruit, pressed blackberry and plum, its perfect for a rainy Christmas inside. I know what I will be pouring this year for the family. Go on, you deserve it! PAT, PWS



    The San Filippo 2016 Brunello di Montalcino offers a slightly exotic personality with smoked cedar, mahogany or teak followed by dark fruit, pressed blackberry and plum. The wine ages in large oak cask for two years. This is a robustly textured and muscular Brunello with full-bodied intensity that transcends both the bouquet and the mouthfeel. There's a lot going on, especially in terms of the wine's smokiness and spiciness, and there is good acidity and tannic structure to frame it all. Production is 15,000 bottles.
