McGuigan Signature Merlot, 2015

Mellow Merlot from Down under, surprisingly good.

Brian McGuigan’s signed a lot of bottles before he retired!

The Stump Jump, d’Avenberg, Cabernet Sauvignon, 2011, McLaren Vale

Would I have bought this off the shelf? Probably not but I’m glad it came in the wineonline Pot Luck sale.
Earthy Cab Sav, lots of fruit, dry finish.

Nice philosophy, if you can read the label after a glass then you can have another glass. Named after a plough.

Difficult. Tasted like the look on Lesley’s face when she switches on R4 Longwave to discover they’re covering the Cricket! Avoid. In fairness, it was too old but should have aged better.
