About The Pack
Here's six smashing reds that are ready to go any time any where!
From light and juicy Pinot Noir, rich, plummy Shiraz and thumping Cabernet, we've got all bases covered.
At under $20 a bottle, this pack falls straight into 'no-brainer' territory!
2018 Unico Zelo Harvest Pinot Noir
Adelaide Hills Pinot Noir might not be as 'out there' as much of the Unico Zelo range, but when you look deeper this wine is a unique idea in its own right.
The concept behind the Harvest project is a profit share between Unico Zelo and local growers. All of UZs proceeds go to charity, the growers see greater profits then their fruit would usually supply - it's a win/win wine in concept and, happily, the juice is just delightful.
The 2018 release is a light, bouncy Pinot all about easy drinking and deliciousness. Hats off Brendan and Laura! Lovely wine, great cause and super value.Read more about 2018 Unico Zelo Harvest Pinot Noir
2017 Somos Tintito
This is a mystery red blend from Ben and Mauricio at Somos wines.
It's a compilation of predominantly red Rhone varieties with a few other bits and pieces thrown in for fun. The aim here was to create "A wine driven by primary berry fruit, savoury spice and acid line. Textural light red." and they've nailed the MO.
This is a top value little red and is squarely in no-brainer territory for those chasing a medium-bodied red that is loaded with charisma.Read more about 2017 Somos Tintito
2018 Dormilona Tinto
Jo Perry continues her quest to make exciting, organically farmed, naturally made Margaret River wines, and this is a terrific introduction.
Don't be fooled by the name 'Tinto' - this is Margaret River Shiraz, but not like we know it...
Margaret River Shiraz has at times struggled for its own identity, but this is a style we love to see. Somewhat of a 'nouveau' release, it's medium-bodied at most, full of vibrant fruit and spice and good, firm structure.
100% whole bunch, 100% whole berry ferment, 100% deliciousness.
It's interesting, it's approachable, it's colourful, it's a bit of a no-brainer to be honest.
2017 Woods Crampton Barossa Shiraz
Yet again the Woods Crampton Barossa Valley Shiraz shapes as one of the year's true wine bargains. Shiraz lovers eat your hearts out.
The style of this wine is best summed up by the Woods Crampton boys themselves: "A modern, fruit driven Barossa Shiraz with a focus on drinkability. A world away from the over-extracted and over the top styles loved by the Americans. Cool Climate Barossa Shiraz?"
If you're a fan of this quintessential Aussie wine style, this is quite simply one of the best value Shiraz in The Barossa Valley.Read more about 2017 Woods Crampton Barossa Shiraz
2016 Longhop Cabernet Sauvignon
To walk the tightrope of fruit richness and drinkability in Cabernet Sauvignon is no easy task.
But winemaking duo of Dom Torzi and Tim Freeland have knocked this out of the park.
The vines that make this wine are up to 50+ years in age. When you take that into account along with the class act that is Dom Torzi crafting the wine, you don't see value Cabernet like this every day.
Andrew Graham awarded this 90 points, as did Gary Walsh. Bargain Cabernet you can drink now or cellar for a few years - winning all round here.Read more about 2016 Longhop Cabernet Sauvignon
