It's BIG, It's BOLD, and It's BOGLE!

Voted Editor's Choice by Wine Enthusiast Magazine TWO YEARS IN A ROW, the Phantom Red is bigger than ever, at a limited price of just $29.99 while stocks last!

The Bogle Family have been farming in the Clarkesburg region of California for five generations, but moved from traditional agricultural farming to Winegrowing fifty years back. They have a somewhat legendary reputation for crafting top quality wines with big, bold, complex flavours ... and this limited release Phantom Red is certainly no exception!

Take two of the most robust grape varietals like Petite Syrah ( otherwise known as Durif ) and Zinfandel, age the wine for 28 months, using new - one to two year old American Barrels, and bottle the wine unfined. What do you get? ... It's Bold, it's Beautiful, and for all of its up front plush fruit characters, there's also texture, complexity and tannin!

This is a Red Wine experience unlike many others, that does not apologise for its up front and undeniably pleasing style! Like a true Phantom it's a mysterious apparition of ripe fruit and relentlessly lingering spice, with haunting intensity and concentration. Full-bodied with red and dark berries, dusty cedar notes, sweet vanilla on the finish, and layers of creamy texture to round out those exuberant tannins.

There is never enough of this wine to satisfy NZ demand, and we have an exclusive limited time offer of just $29.99 while our stocks last. Don't pay up to $41.99 elsewhere, buy today and enjoy the savings!

It doesn't come bigger than this Californian red blend.

Bogle are infamous for their, massively ripe, buttery and oaky styles of Chardonnay and this Phantom red blend follows famously in its footsteps. A blend of 52% Petite Sirah (aka Durif) and 48% Zinfandel, not for the faint hearted, its big baby, like cloaking a monster in an eighties ball gown, shoulder pads and all. Not only are these varietals renowned for their bigness, the wine is aged for 28 months in 1-2 year old American barrels. It’s a statement and bigness is my name.


lashing of dusty, coconut oak gush from the glass supported by mulberries, chocolate, brown spices and coffee grinds. Tastes, Generous plush forward fruit showing red and dark berries flavours, cedar, dusty and vanilla notes follow. The palate has a creamy texture helping to tame the somewhat rustic, obvious tannins. This is for those who love big, bold, oaky red wines. Decant just prior to serving to help soften those oak tannins. Serve with a juicy steak with fries on the side.
