There’s no denying that a ‘Cab Sauv’ is a full-bodied red wine. Like watching a Dwayne Johnson movie, you know what you’re in for. Considered one of Australia’s great red wines, the small thick skinned berries impart lots of colour and delicious flavour. A wine which ages well, the flavours are of copious blackberry and cassis (blackcurrant) fruit, liquorice and earthy chocolate oak with hints of herbs and pepper. Get the slow cooker out, it’s time for lamb shanks and winter vegetables with creamy polenta.
