Dan Murphy's share the secret to drinking perfectly cellared wine without owning a cellar.
Did you know you have access to Australia’s largest wine cellar housing over 3 million bottles of wine? In the perfect climate controlled conditions of this cellar sit wines identified by some of Australia’s top wine judges and experts as those that will most improve with a few years under their belt. They are regularly tested, and when they are at their absolute drinking prime they are made available to buy at your local Dan Murphy’s.
Ever since the Prahran store first opened in 1952, Dan Murphy’s have housed a Cellar Release section for the express reason of bringing affordable matured wine to the people. You don’t need to wear a cravat and be an ‘aficionado’ to appreciate well aged wine. All you need is a palate and an opinion, after all the beauty of wine is in the tastebuds of the beholder.
The good news is entry level bottles of Cellar Release wines are under $15, putting them firmly in the affordable category. Of course if you want to head into premium territory you’ll find a selection of Penfolds vintage Grange and some amazing wine from Bordeaux. And it’s this ‘something for everybody’ ethos that characterises the Cellar Release range and makes it one of Australia’s best kept wine secrets.
So don’t go building your home cellar just yet. Look for the Cellar Release seal in-store or explore the range at danmurphys.com.au/cellar.
