Dark, almost raisined fruit lead to a lovely flavour of black cherries wrapped in a cloak of vanilla.

Rated 4 out of 5 by Aglassfull from Lovely wine The grenache grape usually makes for an excellent wine. This one is no exception and I was struck by the intense fruit in the mouth. Excellent value at just less than £4.50

Rated 4 out of 5 by Evvvi2 from Lovely fruity wine This wine is excellent value for money, really nice with food and on it's own. It is quite strong though, so not to be overdone!

Rated 5 out of 5 by Anibanani from Loved It! Australian Shiraz is my favourite wine and this one is way up there with the best. Delicious dark fruit flavours followed by a thump of vanilla. I'll be back at Asda tomorrow to fill my wine rack.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Bill73 from a cracker! I must say I enjoyed this wine a great deal- I'm getting some enjoyable flavours in my mind now just remembering the fresh fruity taste that sprung from the glass into my mouth when I tasted it-then reinforced them by another quaff -superb!

Rated 4 out of 5 by Bill2610 from Perfect for Price Having bought a collection of different reds this was by far the best. So I ordered more! It is a rich fruit tasting wine which is not too overpowering as in some wines.It is also great value for money and has the taste of a much more expensive bottle. I can thoroughly recommend this but don't be in too much of a hurry to drink it, be sure to give it time to breath or decant it and I'm sure you will enjoy this wine as much as I have.

Rated 1 out of 5 by SomersetConnoisseur from Sounded so promising, but turned out thin and sour A big disappointment: with all the prizes this wine has won and the promise of dark cherries and vanilla, I was looking forward to tasting an interesting and pleasing wine from Spain. Instead, I would not call it vinegary, but a sour, thin wine - and I tried leaving my glass in a warm room to see if the wine would improve and take on some character and body, but even this failed. I will be returning the bottle tomorrow for a refund. I hope it is just one bottle, not a whole batch which is like this.
