For a great gift

Stuck on ideas for a present to give to your friends or family? Give them a bottle of Penfolds. One of the most reliable wineries on Earth, the Australian brand has been making great vino for over 150 years, and it shows no sign of slowing. For a sure-fire hit, grab a bottle from the Koonunga Hill range. The gateway to Penfolds’ collection, Koonunga Hill features everything from Chardonnay to Cabernet, offering balance, variety and lasting quality. The Bin 2 Shiraz Mataro, on the other hand, offers more spice and subtlety – perfect to pair with food or enjoy on its own.

THE DEAL: Get three bottles of Penfolds Koonunga Hill for $248 (normally $175 for one) and two bottles of Penfolds Bin 2 Shiraz Mataro for $318 (normally one for $188) while supplies last at Wellcome

For your next Cantonese feast

South Australia produces some of the boldest, most flavourful wines in the whole country, and a lot of them go great with the powerful flavours of Chinese cuisine. Try the Wolf Blass President’s Selection Gold Label Chardonnay the next time you’re cooking seafood. This wine’s balanced profile is a perfect match with rich fish and prawns, and it can also bring out more flavour from the spices. Or grab the brand’s Gold Label Cabernet Sauvignon, which pairs especially well with red meats.

THE DEAL: Get three bottles of Wolf Blass President’s Selection Gold Label for $300 while supplies last at Wellcome

For the ‘wow’ factor

Coonawarra, a pastoral wine-making region between Adelaide and Melbourne, is renowned for its unique red earth. This ruby-hued topsoil yields some of the most intensely flavoured grapes on the continent. It comes as no surprise, then, that this region has become a hotbed for premium wines. Want to impress someone you love or score points with your boss? Get them a bottle from Wynns Coonawarra Estate’s Black Label range. The two wines in the range – Cabernet Sauvignon and Shiraz – are ideal for cellaring and will satisfy collectors. But these bolds wines are just as delicious if you drink them now.

THE DEAL: Get two bottles of Wynns Coonawarra Estate Black Label for the price of one ($445) while supplies last at Wellcome
