Simply put Australia makes boatloads of wine and not all of it is good let alone great. There are exceptions though and Benchmark Wines prides itself in offering the best efforts of some of Australia’s fine wine makers and producers. Fine wines in Singapore is term that is often thrown around without caution or care and rarely is the term Australian included. Benchmark Wines begs to differ; many of the worlds most renowned winemakers are making wine in Australia backed up by years of experience in making wine in Europe and the USA in between vintages.

Paxton 2020 Rosé combines Shiraz & Grenache, grown using the Paxton ‘smart farming’ program that focuses on soil health and biodiversity. The bright fruit characters are those of a healthy vineyard. Winemaker, Richard Freebairn, crafted this wine to be crisp, flavoursome and refreshing. A delicious rosé with pretty rose petal notes and refreshing raspberry aromas.
Serve straight from the fridge for the perfect summer drinking wine.
90+pts – Robert Parker – “The Wine Advocate” Established in 1979, Green Valley is one of the original Margaret River Vineyards. The 30+ year mature vines produce a wonderfully balanced wine with the Margaret River’s signature Cabernet character.
“Deep garnet in color, the 2012 Cabernet Sauvignon is scented of crème de cassis, ripe plums & blackberry preserves with hints of mocha & cloves. Ripe, richly fruited & medium to full-bodied on the palate, it has firm, finely grained tannins & great length.”– Robert Parker
Wanderer is made using a few different vintages of Petit Verdot, a grape variety which hails originally from Bordeaux. This allows us to create a blend with complexity and freshness.
‘Wanderer’ is an elegant yet full bodied sparkling red made using our own home-grown organic Petit Verdot. It has a vibrant bright purple colour, with a nose ripe with blueberries, plum, black cherry and a hint of violets. It is perfect as an aperitif or can enjoyed with a variety of food. Serve chilled.
Pinot Gris is increasing in popularity and we believe it’s a variety well suited to one of McLaren Vale’s coolest sites – Paxton’s Thomas Block. The Paxton Pinot Gris is a crisp and fresh style that also captures the interesting characters and essence of the variety.
The 2020 vintage is the 13th release of this single-vineyard wine and displays fruit freshness and structure highlighting the suitability of this site for the production of premium white varieties.
A delicious Pinot Gris from one of Australia’s most respected wine growers – David Paxton. Paxton’s organic wines are produced on Biodynamic principles without the use of synthetic fertilisers or pesticides with a focus on promoting healthy, living soils.
Our twenty-second release of The Fergus is named after our neighbor who was good enough to sell us his Grenache grapes in the vintage of 1993, during a desperate shortage of Shiraz and Cabernet. We quickly realized that a wine born from logistics had real potential as a medium, but soft style with immediate food compatibility.
“The sensational 2001 Shiraz Stolen Block exhibits a dense ruby/purple color in addition to concentrated blackberry liqueur notes intermixed with melted licorice, pepper, & a hint of wood. This stunningly proportioned, thick, juicy Shiraz will provide enjoyment.”– The Wine Advocate
