"This is a delicate beauty, its flavor depth carrying none of the weight that devoted Aussie red wine drinkers may expect. On the other hand, if you prefer reds that leave plenty of room for food, check this out. It's more Rhone-like than cabernet, with black pepper spice and great length of baked strawberry freshness (a contradiction perhaps, but a delicious one). The tannins are a little sticky, if you're looking for a caveat. But then look at the price...it's as if you're back in the 1980s.""

Product Description:

Wine means different things to different people. For us it's a part of life and for sharing with family, friends and acquaintances. More importantly it's about sharing over a meal or enjoying a glass with nibbles as you chat . Many wines these days are simply statements about themselves: "Hey, look at me". We want our wines to be drinkable, balanced and complementary to food, not showpieces in their own right. We never release any wine under the Route du Van label unless we have enjoyed it over a good meal. This is our simple test for good road trip wines!
