Shiraz 74%, Malbec 11%, Merlot 10%, Tempranillo 5%. Perhaps a little more serious wine than the name suggests. While providing affordable every day drinking, this wine definitely delivers plenty on the quality front. Drink now and over the next 3-5 years. Ideal partner for a hearty winter stew.

Clear crimson-purple, particularly in the teeth of the '11 vintage; there is a lot of spicy, juicy berry fruits, and good tannins to back the fruit. The eclectic nature of the blend (shiraz, malbec, merlot and tempranillo) should not put you off. Good value. Rating 89 - Drink by 2017 - James Halliday, Australian Wine Companion (FEB/2014)

Medium weight palate that is soft, rich and juicy with bright berry, plum and spicy flavours. Fine tannins and balanced acid add some texture and length.
