An perennial favourite for fine wine lovers in Adelaide, Apothecary 1878 has a wine list that continues to offer a glorious and deep global selection of exceptional wine. The list continues to show a strong focus on high quality producers of ‘best wine regions’ with current and back vintage wines lovingly selected. There are exceptional wines from Burgundy, Champagne and marquee regions of Italy, but the gems are found in Alsace, Rhône and Beaujolais, as examples. Beyond the vinous offering there’s one of Australia’s great collections of spirits, so much so that a designated Scotch whisky pairing is available. Indeed, the single malt selection is epic, with many rarities found amongst the listings. However, the strongest focus is on local wines, a true treasure trove here, though you'll find judicious balance between stalwarts like JJ Hahn, Torbreck and Henschke, alongside the avant-garde of BK Wines, Jauma and Ochota Barrels. A marquee collection emerges once more.
