Mother’s Day is creeping up, and this year is going to be a little bit different. Whilst you won’t be able to take mum out for lunch or to a spa, you can still treat her to something great – some beautiful Great Southern wine. What mother wouldn’t enjoy a case (or a wine club subscription!) delivered right to her door? Mums deserve the best – and that is wine from our very own Great Southern!
For the Chardonnay Lover
If your mum loves a glass of Chardonnay, look no further than Silverstream Wines. They have a spectacular Vertical Chardonnay Pack which includes six wines from 2010 to 2016, instructions on how to run a vertical tasting, tasting notes and a tasting sheet to complete and compare! This is a rare opportunity so order now and host your very own tasting session with your mum!
Price: $150 per 6-pack or $280 per 12-pack plus free delivery anywhere in Australia.
For the Sauvignon Blanc Lover
Singlefile Wines has had some incredible recent vintages, and their Singlefile 2019 Run Free Sauvignon Blanc is spectacular! This wine is a crowd-pleaser and boasts hints of passionfruit, green melon, shelled peas, gooseberry and cut herbs. It is no wonder it was awarded 4.5 stars by Winestate Magazine. Your mum will be tickled pink with a bottle (or a case) of this wine for Mother’s Day.
Price: $270 per 12-pack plus free shipping anywhere in Australia.
For the Rosé Lover
For the woman in your life that absolutely loves Rosé, we recommend a case of the 2019 Willoughby Park Rosé. This wine is surprisingly elegant with a rich fragrant aroma of rose petals and with strawberries, cream and roses on the palette. It might just become her new favourite!
Price: $264 per 12-pack. Join their Cellar Club and receive 10% off your first purchase.
For the Riesling Lover
Our cool climate is perfect for producing Riesling, and the 2016 La Violetta Das Sakrileg is a stand-out. It was included in the top 20 Rieslings in Australia by Gourmet Traveller. The techniques used to make this wine are unconventional but result in great perfume and crystalline precision. This is one your mum will enjoy on Mother’s Day, but maybe get her a couple of extra bottles to cellar as this one will only get better with age (just like her!)
Price: $420 per 12-pack with free shipping to Metro Australia
For the Shiraz Lover
Lange Estate is offering a special mixed case featuring two styles of 2017 Shiraz; their TSR Shiraz and their Providence Road Shiraz.

The Providence Road has a lifted bouquet of plum pudding and dark chocolate with flavours of chocolate, liquorice, and hints of plum and sweet spice. Both wines will be perfect by the fire in the colder months.
Price: $330 per 12-pack (If you use the promo code AUTMUN30 you can get 30% off all purchases!)
If you really want to WOW mum, consider a sparkling Shiraz! This style is uniquely Australian and West Cape Howe produce one of the best! Their 2016 Sparkling Shiraz is currently on sale at $27 per bottle and will be sure to bring a smile to mum’s face.
Price: $162 per 6-pack
For the Pinot Noir Lover
Out on a Limb Wine is running an introductory special on their 2018 Pinot Noir. You get six bottles of this delicious Pinot Noir for an incredible $199! What makes this Pinot Noir special is the vineyard’s location; it sits alongside the Kalgan River near the mountain range, which creates a unique microclimate well suited to this varietal. Out on a Limb is a small producer that uses sustainable methods in the vineyard, so bonus points if your mum loves to support small businesses and is environmentally conscious.
Price: $199 per 6-pack plus free shipping Australia wide
For the Cabernet Sauvignon Lover
Rising Star is a lovely winery doing big things! Their 2014 Reserve Cabernet Sauvignon is a special release boasting complex, intense flavours of blackcurrant, dark cherry, spice and hints of mint!

This producer also gives you the option to mix the cases you purchase, which is nice if you want to give mum a few different kinds of wine.
Price: $215 per 6-pack or $405 per 12-pack
For the Port Lover
If your mum has a sweet tooth when it comes to wine, she may fancy the 2010 Yilgarnia Vintage Port. It is a unique Denmark Port with intense blackberry, aniseed, plum and mocha flavours – sounds divine, doesn’t it?! It’s an excellent drink to sip on during the colder months.
Price: $35 per bottle
