McGuigan BIN 736 Shiraz Viognier – Red Wine Review

Red Wine Review

“Rich, full flavoured wines bursting with varietal character are the hallmarks of our McGuigan Bin Series. Handpicked from our finest vineyards, the small quantity of Voignier grapes in this wine lifts the red-berried aromas and softens the spicy Shiraz fruit. The result is an elegant wine with a velvety texture and a long smooth finish.”

“This wine is ready to drink now but can be carefully cellared for up to 2 years. It would make a great accompaniment to lamb chops or roast duck with plum sauce.”

“An expressive Ruby red lights in the glass. The bouquet will be collected by fruity ripe berries such as red currants, blackberries and plums, combined with fine notes of fresh herbs. The palate reflects the aroma and are joined by discreet add chocolate nuances. The wine has good structure with present, soft tannins and a pleasant medium finish.

Explorers Vineyard Sauvignon blanc

“Selected yeasts, cool fermentation and early bottling have lent ripe aromas of gooseberry and honeysuckle to the nose of this wine made exclusively for The Co-operative by New Zealand Winemaker Matt Thomson. It has an intense, yet elegant, passion fruit and mineral complexity to the palate with a long rich Finnish. Serve chilled. Drink within 6 months of purchase.”

Man Vintners Cabernet Sauvignon Review

Man Vintners Cabernet Sauvignon 2010

“When we described this MAN wine as medium-bodied and fruity, we mean it as a compliment. Seriously. It has classic red berry aromas, a touch of vanilla oak spice and light, soft tannins. We suggest a pairing with grilled or roasted meat or a rich pasta – shared with your best man or woman or with man’s best friend.”

Sauvignon Blanc from New Zealand

“NZ SB combines the iconic flavours of New Zealand Sauvignon Blanc into a clean and stylish look. Elegant and modern, NZ SB is the contemporary symbol for the classic region of Marlborough.

Aromatic and classy, this wine is full of gooseberry and passion fruit flavours. Fresh and zesty, with a long lemony finish. From the classic region of Marlborough on New Zealand’s South Island.”

“This smooth red wine is a blend of Shiraz and Cabernet Sauvignon grapes grown in South Eastern Australia. With flavours of black cherry and ripe blackcurrant, it is perfect with tomato based pasta dishes and grilled red meat.”

Lazy Lizard Shiraz Vin de Pays d’Oc – Boutinot

Lazy Lizard Shiraz Review

“Lazy lizard is produced from the Shiraz grape variety, also known as Syrah, grown in the Languedoch region in the south of France. The Vineyard Lizards love to bask in the warmth of the late summer sun, which slowly ripens the Shiraz grapes to their full maturity, producing a smooth wine, rich in ripe spicy flavours.

Relax enjoy Lazy Lizard Shiraz, with red meats, barbeque’s and cheeses.”

“This Quirky Blend of Shiraz, Mourvedre and Voignier is deliciously smooth with rich blackberry flavours. Our Quirky Birds don’t like being cellared so drink while young, with friends and your choice of richly flavoured dishes”
