The Bec Hardy team's top picks from

My team and I are often asked about our favourites from the and last time we did a blog post about this it was really popular – so here we go again!

As we come into late summer / early autumn, I always make sure I have one of my own favourites in the fridge at home – the Bec Hardy Clare Valley Riesling 2021. Richard and I have really been loving this wine over summer! We’ve also got some of the 2017, 2019 and 2020 Lakeside Chardonnays at home and they’re all drinking great – so the new vintage Lakeside SA Chardonnay 2021 is a steal at less than $50 per 6pk. An inexpensive Chardonnay that ages? Yes, please!


If you’re looking for a mid-week, light red quaffer, the Bec Hardy SA Shiraz Cabernet 2020 is one of our Logistic & Production Coordinator Ashley’s favourites. Chosen by Jane Masters MW for our Canadian distributor, we bottled a little bit extra for followers of the

A wine our Customer Experience Specialist Anna has been enjoying, the Export Label Mourvédre 2020 is reaching the end of its run and won’t be coming back! Again, as special release for our friends in Canada, the whole team (and a lot of customers) has been loving this wine at home. 

A new addition to the Wine Shed Sale is the Export Label McLaren Vale Shiraz 2021 (made for the UK) – think southern Rhone Valley, lighter, spicier and a terrific Shiraz from a stellar vintage. This wine is a little lighter than a Cabernet Sauvignon or Shiraz, with really good acidity, and we’ve noticed a few bottles enjoyed by our Communication Manager Hanne!

One final recommendation in the reds? It’s rare to have good cellaring propositions in the but the Export Label McLaren Vale Shiraz 2019 offers just that, with 10+ years ahead of good cellaring. And a top pick of our Digital Marketing Coordinator, Christina!

And if you want to do your bit for the environment while having a drink, top up on the Nature Foundation McLaren Vale Premium Shiraz 2019 – $3 from every bottle goes direct to conservation in South Australia, assisting to preserve over 1.15m hectares of Nature Foundation’s habitat.

Finally, we’re often asked why we don’t always publish the full name of the wine. The answer is quite simple: As good as these prices are, they can sometimes upset a distributor or importer, hence why we sometimes have to be a little more discrete with the naming of the wines. This ensures that we keep everyone happy, you included, by delivering great value, premium wines at wholesale prices, directly to your door!
