Red Blend Wines

Single varietals are great, no argument here. But there is something magical about a winemaker’s ability to blend two or more different varieties to create something very, very special, that in some cases can be greater than the sum of its parts. Whether it’s the iconic Aussie blend of Shiraz and Cabernet Sauvignon, or a GSM and its variants, or the latest trend towards blending more new world varieties, we love a nice red blend. These are the latest red blends to leave the Tasting Panel grinning goofily with wine dribbling down their chins...

  1. Ca 'Botta Alta Valpolicella Ripasso Superiore 2018
    Special Price $45.00 Regular Price $65.00
    A stunning Valpolicella made using the Ripasso method, or 'repass'. Highest quality, high altitude Corvina, Rondinella and Corvinone are fermented on the pressed skins of an Amarone ferment, giving higher alcohols, colour and a good degree more complexity. Rich, dark and savoury, this beast offers cherries, chocolate, graphite, minerals, plum, blackberries and blueberries here, along with white pepper and cedar. A stunning red wine that pairs majestically with roast meat and ragu. Learn More
  2. Ca 'Botta Alta Valpolicella Superiore DOC 2019
    $60.00
    Remarkably intense for a superiore, with dense fruits and excellent acidity tempered by French oak. The bouquet offers cherries, plums, sage and red flowers along with chocolate, smoke, minerality and olive tapenade. The palate is packed with ripe cherries, blackberries, blackberries along with white pepper. Soft and elegant tannins and balanced acidity leave your palate fresh. The second glass beckons. Learn More
  3. Ca 'Botta Rubicondo 2019
    $55.00
    Black, rich, concentrated and savoury, this wine is made from 14-day air dried, traditional regional grapes Corvina and Rondinella softened by Merlot. It offers black fruits, spice and cedar. The fruit sweetness is excellent and well balanced by savory touches. An absolute bargain. Learn More
  4. Ca 'Botta Torcinato Valpolicella Superiore 2018
    Special Price $89.00 Regular Price $99.00
    Our 3rd vintage of the Torcinato, and absolutely the finest to date. This is a big and exceptionally well-structured and refined wine which requires at an hour in a decanter before drinking. It is powerful yet silky smooth, with intense red and blue fruits, cola, tobacco, blackberries, cherries and fresh thyme. Fruit is air dried prior to fermentation for 45 days meaning that 1.6 kg of fruit are required to make each bottle! Learn More
  5. Ca ’Botta Cajo Amarone DOCG 2016
    $180.00
    Ca’ Botta’s highest quality fruit is air dried for 100 days prior to fermentation meaning that 2.2 kgs of fruit are required to make each bottle! This is incredibly, long, concentrated and complex… savour this over a few hours and you may well see black tea, spices, blackberries, cherries, rosemary, dark chocolate, prunes, green peppercorns, and coffee. Stunning. Learn More
  6. Ca ’Botta Cerviero Rosso Veneto 2016
    Special Price $79.00 Regular Price $89.00
    In theory this is an entry level wine for Ca’ Botta, carrying the IGT designation rather than the more favoured DOC or DOCG status. Why? Because this is a wine made using Amarone methods using primarily Amarone varieties with the inclusion of Cabernet which is not allowed in Amarone production… They add Cabernet to build freshness and change the tannin profile … to make something as good but a little different to a traditional Amarone. 2.2 kilos of fruit are needed to make just one bottle. We found herbs, black fruits, cherries, spice and pepper here on a pallet which is both concentrated and ethereal. A cracking wine and an absolute bargain. Learn More
  7. Chateau Bernot Bordeaux 2018
    Special Price $35.00 Regular Price $38.00
    In theory an entry level Bordeaux, this actually drinks like a vastly more expensive wine. The depth of fruit, effortless fleshiness and fruit weight of the palate and seamless glide into a bed of fine tannins marks this as a wine of class and style. Red fruits, back fruits, spice, cedar and minerality are all on the go here. Grab a few bottles to try, we suspect you’ll be back for more. Learn More
  8. Curator Wine Co. Hamlets Rosé 2022
    Special Price $20.00 Regular Price $25.00
    A blend of Montepulciano with some lightly barrel aged Grenache. Watermelon, spice, strawberry, red apple and a creamy texture make this an immensely enjoyable drink. Learn More
  9. Curtis Small Batch Grenache Shiraz 2021
    Special Price $60.00 Regular Price $80.00
    Produced from 120-year-old Grenache bush vines and 80 year old Shiraz vines. The fruit is cold soaked for 14 days before a slow ferment. It is then pressed into new and 2 year old oak where it is allowed to mature 18 months. The resulting wine is deep and complex with black fruits, vanilla, plenty of cedar and spice leading to a long, generous and finely tannic finish. Learn More
  10. Dandelion Lion’s Tooth of McLaren Vale Shiraz Riesling 2019
    Special Price $28.00 Regular Price $40.00
    A wine that is both rich and crunchy with black fruits mingling with reds thanks to the inclusion of a small percentage of Riesling juice and skins in the ferment. We saw cherries, chocolate, clove, spice and plenty of fine tannins. Decant if drinking now or cellar for a decade of more. Learn More
  11. Dandelion Lion’s Tooth of McLaren Vale Shiraz Riesling 2020
    Special Price $28.00 Regular Price $40.00
    A wine that is both powerful and zesty with black fruits ceding to citrus thanks to the inclusion of a small percentage of Riesling juice and skins in the ferment. There are plums, mulberries, spice, lavender, earth, citrus, balsamic and more in this powerful and complex blend. Decant if you are going to drink now – otherwise consider cellaring. Learn More
  12. Dandelion Moonrise Kingdom Shiraz Grenache Petite Sirah 2021
    Special Price $100.00 Regular Price $120.00
    Wow! A rich, voluptuous yet well-structured red from Dandelion’s biodynamic Firehawk Farm vineyard. Inky black fruits are pierced by blackberries and then scented with cedar and spice. Long, rich, and balanced. An exceptional wine. Learn More
