- BY the CASE
Simply put Australia makes boatloads of wine and not all of it is good let alone great. There are exceptions though and Benchmark Wines prides itself in offering the best efforts of some of Australia’s fine wine makers and producers. Fine wines in Singapore is term that is often thrown around without caution or care and rarely is the term Australian included. Benchmark Wines begs to differ; many of the worlds most renowned winemakers are making wine in Australia backed up by years of experience in making wine in Europe and the USA in between vintages.

The 2009 Tim Adams Protégé GMS is a blend of Grenache, Mouvedre & Shiraz.
Lovely perfumed aromas with a well balanced medium bodied & delicious spicy palate with lifted berry aromas & flavours which complement typical Grenache spiciness.
A soft, rich finish.
Another terrific wine from Tim Adams!
An easy to drink red wine that is perfect for Singapore's humid climate.

"This is crisp but powerful with nectarine, spice & citrus notes trending positively through the palate. More than a touch of class about it." - James Halliday
90pts - James Halliday 'Australian Wine Companion
"Made with a sweet core but with full-strength alcohol. A perfect dessert-style wine for a picnic lunch. Fuchsia-crimson & extravagantly perfumed. Rose petals & rose water, stone fruit, raspberries, ripe strawberries. It's refreshing & delightful at once."
The sweetness of the wine comes from picking the fruit later with higher levels of natural sugar, then stopping fermentation before the wine is completely dry. Whats left is a low alcohol, delightfully still dessert wine that tastes like roses & strawberries & is perfect to accompany berries, fruit pies & soft cheeses.
