When I hear the term 'pub grub' I know I'll get a good feed for not much. This wine from Rymill falls into that category for a couple of reasons. Firstly, it doesn't cost a bomb and you get plenty for your dollar. On top of that though, this is found readily on premise in a host of pubs around the traps and will certainly match a steak or something of that ilk. Pub grub if you will.
Dense and dark. Good stuff for $20. A blend of Cabernet Sauvignon, Merlot and Cabernet Franc, think juicy black and red fruits, plums, chocolate, and a subtle spice. Some savoury herb and clove characters can be found too. A little drying but that brings with it a moreish complexity. Made for food and it suits its purpose just fine. Did I say bargain?
