Natalie's Score: 89/100

Smoky, savoury and delicious Australian red wine that bursts from the glass! Layers of sumptuous fleshy black plums and berries wrapped in toasty oak. Full-bodied, smooth and supple. Mallee trees dot the limestone coast where the grapes for this red wine blend grow. Great value for the price. Best served at room temperature, it is perfect for casual get-togethers.

Shirz Cabernet Sauvignon food pairings: barbeque, from prawns to pork.

Reviews and Ratings

Jane Staples - Certified Sommelier rated this wine as 89/100 with the following review:

Ripe plum and blackberry aromas and flavours, augmented by spice and milk chocolate. Smooth supple tannins and lip-smacking chocolate on the finish. There's lots to love in this S.E. Australia Shiraz-Cab blend, and the price is right, too!
Tasted April 2018
Matt Steeves - Certified Sommelier rated this wine as 88/100 with the following review:

“Mallee” is the aboriginal name for eucalyptus tree, and on the South East Limestone Coast of Australia those sun-drenched mallee trees are a popular sight. A Shiraz-rich blend with a dose of Cabernet Sauvignon, from the Padthaway and Wrattonbully regions. This deeply coloured and richly flavoured blend shows layers of smoky dark fruit, kirsch, blueberry, sweet baking spice, and eucalyptus notes. Velvety smooth and well structured, the stewed fruit, black raspberry, and dark cherry are backed with fine tannins making this wine a great choice for enjoying with tangy BBQ ribs, pulled pork, gourmet burgers, or celebrating a great evening with friends. Tasted May 2016. 88 points. Matt Steeves - www.quercusvino.ca
The 2014 Shiraz-Cabernet Sauvignon has bold, full-bodied flavours of ripe blackberry and plum with hints of mocha and toasty oak. It’s a big wine with a long, smooth finish.
