Wine is the most versatile and luxurious gift you can gift. With Father’s Day just a few weeks away (6th September 2015), a beautiful wine gift can make your dad’s day. Show how much you appreciate him with a thoughtful wine choice. Some wines get better with age and require a few years in the cellar, while some can be enjoyed immediately. It’s always good to find a wine that fits in with Dad’s personality.

The Outgoing Dad

Is Dad gregarious, a little rough around the edges and are Sunday afternoon barbeques his favourite activity? Why not gift him a wine he can enjoy when he has friends over and the grill is on. Robert Oatley’s Four In Hand Shiraz is our pick! Best enjoyed with tangy ribs, burgers and smoked duck, this beautiful Shiraz from the famous Barossa Valley in South Australia can sit for 5-7 years or opened immediately.

The Thinker

For a Dad that’s a little more reserved and soft-spoken, we suggest the Heathcote estate traveller, which includes the Heathcote Estate Vintage 2012 Shiraz and our Bockers & Pony wine traveller case. The 2012 vintage is wonderfully balanced Shiraz with a rich core of sweet fruit and a deep dense palate. Great for now and will also cellar superbly. Another great option could be our Wine Appreciation gift hamper, delightful gourmet treats coupled perfectly with the Heathcote Estate vintage shiraz and 2 Riedel stem less shiraz glasses.

The Wow Factor

If you’re looking to particularly spoil Dad this Father’s Day, gift him a prestigious wine. One he can cherish and you can both enjoy together. Very much like Penfolds Grange, the Henschke Hill of Grace has become one of Australia’s flagship wines. The Henschke Hill of Grace vintage 2010 has an extraordinary scent of exotic spices, licorice and crimson plums. Its palate is complex with dark, rich layers and its finish is smooth, long and fine.
