The Unexpected Red Blend 2017 review - WineUncorked: Wine Reviews and Tips

co op

A great value flavourful Australian red made with from four (unexpected) grape varieties – Cabernet Sauvignon, Grenache and the lesser known Mataro and Zweigelt. The whole miss-mash is full of blackcurrant and treacle flavours along with some espresso coffee and chocolate. Even with all that going on it still remains quite freshly flavoured. A big red wine for enjoying with big red foods.
