Many critics score this McLaren Vale wine highly.
Critic tasting note: Still a medium hued crimson colour, no whole bunches here, nine months in older French oak. Spicier than the previous wines, a little meatier in terms of its aromas. Mouthfilling and ripe fruit, really quite tangy, there's a plummy quality, but a rasp of tannin and souring acidity that gives some grip and real gastronomic appeal." - 91/100, Tom Cannavan
Deep ruby in the glass, this cabernetSauvignon commands attention from the moment it is poured. Rich, luscious scents of sweet berry fruits entice the nose, opening to wisps of cola, licorice and spice. An intense core of ripe blackberry and boysenberry greets the palate, giving way to notes of cassis, vanilla and earth. Firm tannins and food-friendly acidity balance the plush fruit, leading to a long, pleasant finish.
The intense character and complex nature of this Cabernet Sauvignon is a strong partner for meat dishes such as beef stew and roasted venison. Try it also with a flavourful starter, such as gorgonzola and walnuts, or a simple dessert, like espresso gelato.
Aromas of leather and forest floor greet the nose and are enhanced by dark cherry, plum and vanilla oak. The palate has elegant fine-grained tannins and an incredible texture that supports a lovely earthy, truffle-like complexity. A perfect balance of fruit and oak in a complex, weighty style.

Guigal Cote Du Rhone Red
Lovely blend of the three most classic Rhone grapes. 50% Shiraz giving black pepper and blackcurrant, 45% Grenache, bringing redcurrant tartness and Mouvedre to round out the flavour. Dryness and damson notes with green notes. A spicy, complex wine with good structure and a long finish
This rich wine with its red fruit aromas combined with spicy notes of white pepper and liquorice will delight epicureans. It possesses remarkable freshness and offers distinct tannins that are nevertheless finely-worked from a long maturation on wood. A great buy for entertaining over a beef flank steak with shallots!
A blend of traditional Douro red grape varieties, led by the perfumed Touriga Nacional, with the addition of 20% Syrah, a variety which Quinta do Noval believes is perfectly suited to the climate and soils of the Douro. The wine is aged for 10 months in French oak barrels, 12 % in new barrels. The nose reveals spicy aromas, followed by chewy flavors of chocolate, and dark plum. A firm acidity on the palate, slightly smoky finish which enhances the purity and the freshness of the fruit.
