El Desperado Red Blend 2022


Known as the Red Blend, when you get a red wine that's as easy to throw back as this, it doesn't matter what the make up is. What a fabulous slurp this is from El Desperado.

El Desperado Tempranillo 2021


Dangerously smooth, this takes pizza and pasta night to another level. Throw me a burger to match though, but a ragu will be just fine. A fabulous Tempranillo from El Desperado that oozes value at 20 bucks.

Backline Je Fais Cabernet Blend 2018


There's some juicy factor here with a little weight behind it. A bit like a retired footballer one could say. The label is owned by three former Wallabies - Drew Mitchell, Matt Giteau and Adam Ashley-Cooper.

Three former Wallabies come together to create a wine label made by Ben Riggs.
