Each year, Saddler’s Creek winemakers handpick a selection of rare cellar aged wines to release.

Wines that have been carefully aged and ready for your enjoyment now.

This year’s release features our TOP SHELF wines from the Reserve Collections.

Reserve Wine & Food Pairing


Alessandro Reserve Collection pays tribute to the Laureti family’s winemaking heritage and in the memory of a beloved father of brothers Frank and Serge. This collection represent our very best wines. They celebrate the importance of terroir and the art of winemaking. Pristine fruit, a gentle hand and the finest oak give finesse, flavour and longevity.

Alessandro produced wine in Italy before migrating with his wife Maria and son Serge to Australia in the 1950’s. Wine has long been a part of the family culture. “Growing up, there was never a meal without a glass of wine, it became the Laureti way of life” Frank says. The Alessandro Reserve collection recognises a man for his principles in keeping life simple. Alessandro believed in working hard and with passion, he delighted in time spent with family and friends, all the while enjoying the pleasures of good food and great wine!

The Alessandro Reserve wines are complimented by the release of a beautiful and patiently cellared ‘Limited Edition’ Maria Reserve Chardonnay – a homage
to Alessandro’s wife and very much loved mother and nonna, Maria.

Maria Reserve is dedicated to the matriarch of the Laureti family. At 94 years young, “nonna” Maria continues to cook with passion, nurture, and care for her family. “Nonna” Maria lives her life by following a simple philosophy: be good, be kind, be humble.

The Maria Reserve showcases a limited edition of the reserve white wines which have been patiently cellared. These cellar release wines show incredible depth of flavour and complexity.
