This pack is a collection of very small batch and exclusive wines that you won't see in a shop and you'd be lucky if they ever brought it out for a tasting at their cellar door. In fact, for us to get our hands on these bottles took a lot of wheeling and dealing. So here it is. The supremo of the supreme.
Oh, and what's Rhodium? Considering the rarity of these wines, we decided to seek out the rarest metal on earth. Everyone has Bronze, Silver, Gold and Platinum. This is even better. This is Rhodium.
Try this with this month's cheese packs.
This month we have chosen four wines that will work across all four cheeses in our Therapy Box or Globetrotter Pack. We aren't going to be hard and tell you it needs to be paired exactly in a particular way. Rather, explore the flavours of the cheeses and wines and see what you like best. Naturally we have only selected brilliance. Let us know how we went!
In this month's Rhodium Edition:
2017 Charli Jaye Chardonnay, Brockenchack An elegant and sophisticated Chardonnay with bright aromatics brought on by a cooler spring with good rains. Delivering aromas of kaffir lime, guava and spring blossom that develop into notes of stone fruit, melon and citrus.

MV Mosaic Collection Sparkling Meslier Brut Rosé, Levrier This has to be one of the most beautiful bottles on the market. Featuring the greyhound necklace, this pays homage to Jo Irvine's love of greyhounds and her work in rescuing these beautiful creatures. The grapes are specially grown in the Adelaide Hills and matured for 24months prior to bottling. It is matured for a further 12months in the bottle before it is released to you. It's bubbles baby! This goes with every cheese!
2017 Brother John May Reserve Release Shiraz, Sevenhill
Some things are best left to last. This wine is the pinnacle of what Sevenhill is about. Named after the last Jesuit Priest winemaker, Brother John May, this wine is steeped in sentiment, passion and history. Brother John May is famous in the Clare region, having served as winemaker from 1972 to 2003 and still shares his advice to ensure Sevenhill will forever be at the forefront of Australian quality. Picked from a small block that was planted by Br May in his early days at Sevenhill, the low yield and ultra-high quality have created a masterpiece. Plenty of rain in Winter and Spring 2016 looked promising, however, a cool January slowed ripening right down and pushed out harvesting significantly. A burst of hot weather, late in February 2017 pushed things along for a March pick early one morning in the cool. Matured in new French oak Hogsheads for 18months, this is the ultimate prize wine.
2014 Mosaic Collection Anubis Cabernet Sauvignon, Levrier
This one has picked up some banging gongs around the world, so let's get it on. Cab Sav is still one of Australia's favourites but when you get someone like Jo Irvine creating it, you'll soon realise you've been doing this drop all wrong. Jo personally selects the fruit from a single vineyard in Eden Valley and then matures it for 24months in French oak before bottling. It will ruin every other Cab Sav for you. But then again, you'll have a new love.
