TODAY we have a mixed bag - a shiraz, a cabernet sauvignon and a tempranillo-grenache-malbec – but each over-delivers on quality and value. This red has 14 per cent alcohol and is bright garnet. The nose has berry pastille scents and juicy blackberry flavour shows on the front palate. Dried cranberry, Turkish delight chocolate, cloves and toasty oak meld on the middle palate and the finish has minty tannins.
