The wine is above all drinkable, nearly thirst-quenching with exotic floral aromas, captivating fruit leaning towards berries and bramble with a striking verve and concrete minerality moving to subtle tannins and a refreshing finish.

Robert Parker's Wine Advocate

Outer quote mark This is the flagship wine from Cruse Wine Co. Made up of 51% Valdiguié, 13% Carignan, 10% Syrah, 8% Pinot Noir and other mixed reds, it was made using about 20% whole cluster and bottled unfiltered. The 2018 Monkey Jacket has a nose reminiscent of cru Beaujolais—peppered salami, blueberries, gravel dust, dried savory herbs, crushed granite and bright red cherries and berries with smoky/mineral touches. The savory, earthy palate is light to medium-bodied, very soft and juicy, finishing savory. (EB) Inner quote mark (12/2019)

Our notes


Producers notes


Delivery is currently free of charge for both straight and mixed cases Australia Wide. (*excludes remote postcodes in WA and NT) (*excludes fundraising orders)

In most instances, a case is 12 bottles, including all mixed cases. Please note that the case quantity can vary between 3-12 bottles, depending on individual wine value and packaging configuration.

The number of bottles that define a straight case is marked in the product pricing page (i.e. "as part of any 6", "single bottle" and "3 or 6 or 12 bottle case").

Where all or part of the order is less than a case (as defined in the product pricing options, or 12 bottles if mixed) shipping will be charged as per your postcode at our cost price, this charge amount will be visible before your order confirmation and payment.

For example, a mixed bottle order of 18 bottles will include a freight charge for the second mixed case of only 6 bottles. A mixed 24 bottle order would be totally freight free.

Our intention is to offer free shipping to as many wine lovers as possible, however, given the geographically vast size of Australia, it is not possible for us to offer free shipping to 100% of postcodes. For estimated delivery times and further information see here. If you have any additional questions, please email us on or call us on 1300 55 44 35
