Thanks Mr Branson. After speculatively submitting the wine the Virgin Australia Wine Panel about 9 months ago sales to the front end of the plane have gone through the roof. We continue to get orders from Virgin Australia so hope there is some wine available of the yet to be released wine to the general trade and public. We are down to our last pallet of the 2012 Chardonnay so expect the 2013 wine to be available soon. Here's a copy of the front end wine list!

4 out of 5 stars - A cut above
The pinot fruit here gives a pale pink tone to the pour, as well as classic, sweetly lifted strawberry fruits in its tasting profile. It's a lovely finessed wine, and encourages faint yeasty edges in the palate. A terrific little pinkie.

92 Points - 2009 Firebird Sauvignon Blanc, Tony Love described the wine as
"Field grasses with a fair bit of life spring out of the glass, a sense of herb gardens and fresh limes and tangy green apples to bite into, with plenty of crunchy acidity holding up a lingering finish."
Tony Love has reviewed the 2008 Firebrid Pinot Gris:
"fuller bodied style, showing gold in the glass, vibrant grape and melon flavours, fresh pear crispness and an exciting underlying acidity pinning an unctous mouth feel, finishing rich and satisfying."
Another 5 star winery rating in the 2010 Wine Companion 9 wines 90 points and above!
