Anyone that has wandered the aisles of their local bottle shop in search of a good bottle of wine knows that the wine industry is mind-bogglingly large. Most of us don’t have time to dedicate to researching the hottest drops of the season or scouring the city for a particular vintage, but the team at Magnum + Queens has made it its mission to do just that so we don’t have to. The online wine subscription service sources quality varietal wines from small, craft and sustainable producers and ships them across Australia – right into our hot little hands.
This month Magnum + Queens has released a box called The Outsiders, which features a collection of under-appreciated wines that deserve time in the spotlight. Varietals include rare drops such as Malvasia, Garnatxa Negra, Cabernet Franc and Primitivo, sourced from regions including Provence in France, Puglia in Italy, Valdeorras in Spain and Langhorne Creek in South Australia. All Magnum + Queens wines are curated by sommelier Virginia Selleck, with subscription packs available in addition to an online store for individual purchasing. Have a squiz online before you even think about quaffing some random drop from the bottle-o.
