Fantastic! Local and hearty, this full-bodied red wine pairs best with a nice manchego cheese or Berkshire pork. Yum.

I'm not usually a fan of carmenere wines, but this one is nicely flavoured and not too tangy. If you're a fan of the grape, give it a try!

This wine offers a smooth mix of a number of different grapes and pairs really well with roasted pork. Well-balanced and fruity, this is definitely an easy-drinking red wine.

Loved this wine! If you're a fan of a more complex red wine or game/red meats, this one is perfect for you. Tasty and tangy with cherry aromas, this one is a staple for your kitchen wine rack.
