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. Curtis Small Batch Grenache Shiraz 2020
    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
  2. 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
  3. 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
  4. 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
  5. Dune The Empty Quarter Red Blend 2021
    You can have 2 out of 3. Power, fragrance and balance. Actually, this wine manages all 3, a fresh, red fruit and floral aromatics lead to a palate which is both crunchy yet smooth and laden with mulberry, cherries, marzipan, vanilla, cured meats and white pepper. A stunner! Learn More
  6. Farmers Leap Pillar Box Red 2021
    This is a gorgeously vibrant blend of Shiraz and Cab from the Limestone Coast. It has heady perfume of red fruits, blue fruits and florals leading to a palate bursting with cranberry, blackcurrants, mint, cedar and a hint of eucalypt Learn More
  7. Haselgrove 'Switch' GSM 2018
    Special Price $35.00 Regular Price $40.00
    This is a big wine by GSM standards and brooding to boot. There’s lots of dark fruit, swirls of spice and earth, chocolate and plums. It is superbly succulent, lithe relative to its impressive fruit weight and an each way bet for necking now or in 10 years time. Learn More
  8. Heirloom Vineyards Anevo Fortress Grenache Touriga Tempranillo 2018
    Special Price $62.00 Regular Price $80.00
    Selected from Heirloom’s best McLaren Vale vineyard. We saw musk, plum skin, spice, cherries, earthiness, Earl Grey tea, blackberry and black pepper. A sense enveloping and incredibly beguiling wine finished with a dusting of fine powdery tannins. Magical. Learn More
  9. Henry’s Drive Shiraz Grenache Mourvèdre 2020
    Special Price $30.00 Regular Price $40.00
    An almost perfectly realized blend of Shiraz, Grenache and Mataro, packed with red, blue and black fruits. There’s nutmeg, cocoa, plums, fig and a hint of coffee. Excellent palate weight and smoothness. A joy to drink! Learn More
  10. Hobbs Tin Lids Shiraz Cabernet 2019
    Special Price $40.00 Regular Price $56.00
    A very rich and ripe red wine offering blueberries, prune, and pepper on the nose. The palate is concentrated, offering blueberries again, dried herbs, plenty of oak, and lots of tannins. Perfect with a substantial red meat dish. Learn More
  11. Jeanneret Hummer Merlot Shiraz 2016
    Special Price $45.00 Regular Price $55.00
    Massive- a big, dark and super rich red wine, yet smooth and textural. Plenty of oak, and good acidity. On the tasting panel, we kinda expected to hate this, given it's 16.3% alcohol – fair to say we were wrong! Learn More
  12. Kilikanoon Meymans Shiraz Cabernet 2019
    Special Price $35.00 Regular Price $50.00
    A standout from the Kilikanoon stable. From Kim Brebach, who gave it 96 points. ‘The fruit is gorgeous, rich and generous, the wine is big but soft and seductive, and the oak handling exemplary. The texture is velvet, the balance is perfect.’ A stunner which you can drink now, or age for up to another dozen years or so. Learn More
