Whether you are looking to toast a special occasion or build out the profile of your wine collection, there is always a case for splurging on a truly luxury bottle of wine.
Having a premium wine in your collection, no matter how big or small it may be, allows you to have that special bottle on hand should you need it, as well as providing you with a high-quality wine that you can cellar or sell into the future.
Here are five luxury wines that we recommend investing in to impress.
Louis Roederer 2021 Cristal Brut
This elegant Champagne maintains its density and poise through ripe white and citrus fruits that offer unbeatable perfume. Taut and textured, this is a Champagne that elevates your sparkling collection to the next level.
Tignanello, IGT 2016
For a red wine outside your typical varietals, this Tignanello offers a rich profile of black fruits, spice and chocolate with supple tannic structure. Blending Cabernet Sauvignon, Sangiovese and Cabernet Franc, the end result is a luscious, powerful fusion.
Penfolds Bin 169 Cabernet Sauvignon 2016
How could any luxury wine list go without a Penfolds? This rare varietal offers the classic blackcurrant and black olive aromas found in Penfolds with cinnamon, chocolate truffle and Italian flavours. This dry, full-bodied style is balanced and complete with just a hint of French oak.
Opawa 2018 Marlborough Pinot Noir
This attractive and elegant delivery of juicy dark cherries and raspberries offers subtle floral, thyme and toasted notes. Supple and balanced, this beautifully balanced red has a silky texture that is rounded out by soft, fine tannins.
Chateau Des Deux Rives Bordeaux 2016
Produced by a small family estate set on exceptional terroir, this varietal combines Merlot, Cabernet Sauvignon and Cabernet Franc to great effect. The result? Red berry aromas, toasted vanilla and nutty flavours defined by elegant, soft tannic structure.
