We started off with Sandra’s F______ Red in June 2016 & with the help of Oak Room Wines, we have added 4 other drinks in memory of Sandra Green. Sandra prematurely passed away from bowel cancer 3rd June 2016, she was only 44. Her children, Lachlan, Aidan & Jemma are promoting ‘Sandra’s Wacky Wines’ and are officially working with Bowel Cancer Australia to raise money to fight cancer, in honour of their Mum.
Sandra loved her wine, her family, her friends & loved a celebration! Oak Room Wines will donate $40 of every dozen sold directly to Bowel Cancer Australia. Cheers to Sandra Green!

Judges: Russell Cody, Rob Diletti, Andrew Santarossa.
Class comments: “Chardonnay is the most exciting class to judge in Australian wine shows at present. Wines are complex, balanced and soooooo Burgundian. Lost are the days of sunshine in a bottle – because we are serious international winemakers now. Viva La Chardonnay.”
Sandra’s Wacky Prosecco – Label design Aidan Green
A classic Italian variety combining a clean, crisp and fruit driven premium sparkling wine. A sure win at any party, celebration. Quality cold meats and a good cheese plate highly recommended.
Sparkling Sandra – Pinot Chardonnay Brut

Colour: Pale Straw
Nose: The aroma is fresh & fruity with the yeast evident.
Palate: The palate is soft and creamy leading to a refreshing clean acidic finish.. Try with freshly shucked oysters with a squeeze of fresh lime.

Sandras Red Rock Cab Sauv
Old Vine Eden Valley Ultra Premium Cabernet Sauvignon – RRP $140 per bottle.
From the cellars of our premium selection, this beautiful Cabernet displays generous dark berry aromas. On the palate is intense, succulent berry and spice flavours, distinctive tannins and a firm elegant finish. Added complexity from an excellent vintage.
The fruit was crushed into small 2 tonne fermenters and fermented for 10-12 days with hand plunging in the morning and again in the evening, pushing the skins down into the fermenting juice, further imparting the precious colour and flavours in to the developing wine. After fermentation the skins were gently basket pressed for further flavour and colour extraction. The wine was then racked to a mixture of new and three year old French and American oak hogsheads. Every six months the wines were racked to tank and returned to oak, slowly removing deposits and assisting with clarity.
Leg of rare roast lamb with rosemary jus.
Fruit: 100% Eden Valley Cabernet Sauvignon
Colour: Red brick with hints of purple hue
Nose: Blueberry, mulberry, mint, plum and mild anise
Palate: Rich concentrated mixed berry, deft use of oak provides amazing tannins balance and structure.
Alcohol: 14.2 % Alc Vol
Cellaring: Consume now through to 2024
Notes: This exceptional wine has not been filtered and will develop a crust over time – hence decanting is highly recommended.
