Natalie's Score: 94/100

This is an incredible robust red wine for the price! Full-bodied, lusciously rich and deep with a terrific long finish. Aromas of fleshy sweet dark fruit, a hint of pepper and savoury goodness. Mouth-watering and delicious. terrific with grilled pork shops, beef or lamb with rosemary. The Grenache in the blend gives this wine an extra richness, while the Mataro lends rustic tannins and the Shiraz, fleshy fruit. It's a terrific combo!

Named Varietal Blends-Red food pairings: slow-braised beef cheek, lamb shanks, grilled pork chops.
