Angas & Bremer Cabernet Sauvignon 2015

Carson Wines £14.99 Over-delivering for the price, with good, clean, modern presentation, this was upfront with bramble and bright cassis fruit, overlaid on an intense, spicy, creamy, but modernleaning palate. Well-structured, with integrated but firm tannins, and a nice balance of oak, fruit and spice through to a long finish.

★★★★★

Project Wine Pioneer Road Reserve Shiraz 2014

Broadland Wineries £11 Vibrant fruit on the nose and palate, revealing cherry and plum, with a touch of leathery, meaty savoury character, this was vibrant and fleshy, with spice on the mid-palate. A lovely, approachable wine at the price and clearly presented.

Looking for distribution £19.99 With a smart, modern presentation, this suggested it was a modern all-rounder and the wine clearly delivered. A classic Aussie Riesling, with zesty green lime notes, apple and a hint of kerosene, through to dry honey nuances on the finish, this was harmonious, complex and well-balanced.
