Mataro continues to blossom apace as the sleeper red variety of South Australia. Fortunately the drinking public seems to agree. Have to admit we're still waiting for the #lastnightmatarosavedmylife hashtag to go viral, but we persist. It will happen!

Our notes


The Wine Front
From Armagh and Auburn in the Clare Valley. Cops a healthy 65% whole bunch. You want it savoury, you’ve got it savoury. Dried cherry, redcurrant jelly, rosehip, meat, dried herbs and spice. Medium-bodied, quite bloody and meaty, plenty of orange peel and dried herb lends a positive bitter twang, tannin has flesh and powdery grip, juicy orange and fresh strawberry acidity, and the finish runs long to carob, perfume and red fruits. No shortage of interest here. It’s a wonderful and expressive tilt at Mataro.

Producers notes

Tonic Wines is a small batch project being undertaken by two friends with similarly nerdy wine habits. Glenn is an experienced winemaker with genuinely practical skills…actually quite a lot of them. Dan’s background is in wine drinking, talking and educating and after a recent stint as a wine-stained cellar hand he now knows about ‘righty-tighty, lefty loosy’ but that’s about it.

We both agree on many things. First and foremost wine should be a delicious drink. It should also be a bit of fun and enjoyed with good friends in a riotous or relaxed setting. We’re also convinced that both Sherry and American football are way cooler than most people give them credit for.

We don’t really believe in boring wine. It’s a waste of time for your senses and deprives you of a memorable experience. Don’t short change yourself; life is too short. Only drink wine that makes you want to have a second glass.


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
