winning history. It's a Grenache charged red from very old

bold and smooth with black fruit flavour, dark chocolate and a
liquorice tang. Smooth enough to drink on its own and great with
spare ribs, steak or kebabs.
The Red Sedan Cabernet Shiraz 2016
South Australia 14% abv
Cabernet and Shiraz grapes were selected from top South
Australian vineyards, then fermented in small vats with regular

underlying tones of creamy vanilla and spice. A tasty accompaniment
to shepherd's pie, lamb or steak.
