Banrock Station Cabernet-Shiraz Blend Cabernet-Shiraz 2008

External Review by Premium Wine & Spirits:

On the light side, with pretty herb-scented berry flavors that echo nicely on the clean, pure finish. Drink now.

This fruity red is softer and more friendly in style with pleasing berry flavors and smooth finish. Right at home with pork chops and grilled chicken.

A textbook, sculpted blend of two supremely complementary grapes that offers wine lovers multilayered aromas of cassis, black pepper, and spice and sinewy flavors of black cherry and dried herbs. Serve at cellar temperature. The ideal companion for garlic-crusted port tenderloin, filet mignon, or chorizo and mushroom pizza.

Soft and appealing for its ripe currant and berry fruit, echoing nicely on the open-textured finish.

Pretty, staightforward Chardonnay with citrus, pear and vanilla notes floating through. New label from BRL Hardy.

The Banrock Station Shiraz Cabernet Sauvignon 2008 wine is a highly popular red that's a typical Aussie Shiraz, at a tempting price. Sales of this Australian 'Rhone' blend will benefit the UK's Wildfowl & Wetlands Trust. The warm spicy berry fruit flavors and hints of oak are ideal with pasta, casseroles or roasts.

Ah, the great outdoors. On the nose, raspberry, blackberry and plum meet tobacco and hickory, campfire-like aromas. Palate smolders with smoke, oak and charcoal over fruit flavors; this is a big, but not too heavy, wine. Slightly hot finish is peppered with black fruit flavors. This will overshadow many dishes - try it with barbecue or s'mores.
