|AC/DC ‘HELLS BELLS’ MARLBOROUGH SAUVIGNON BLANC 2011 £101.88 (12 bottles), £50.94 (6 bottles)|
Following in the footsteps of Madonna and the Rolling Stones, AC/DC decided it was time to team up with a great estate and make their own brand of wine. They chose Warburn Estate, one of Australia’s Top 10 wineries and winner of a multitude of accolades around the world. As everyone knows New Zealand “has been crowned king of the world for Sauvignon” (WINE magazine), and the most intense come from Marlborough, so that’s where Warburn sourced the grapes.

It’s a dazzling apéritif, guaranteed to awaken your taste buds. Also a good match for fish and chips or mildly spicy Asian dishes.
|YARRUNGA FIELD BLACK LABEL 2010 £119.88 (12 bottles), £59.94 (6 bottles) |
Any release from Sam Trimboli is worth a fanfare but his Yarrunga Field Black Label deserves a 21 gun salute. For nearly 20 years Sam’s Yarrunga Field white has been a bestseller. So we set him a challenge – to create a Yarrunga Field red. His first was a delicious easy drinker. Then he came up with this – a top quality but great value alternative to the pricier, famous names of the Barossa. It’s a sumptuous blend of premium Shiraz, Cabernet and Merlot – picked from vineyards owned by some of the valley’s leading independent growers. Aged in oak barrels, it has spice and velvet smooth cherry and mulberry flavours, with hints of dark chocolate and soft vanilla. Best served with roast beef and all the trimmings or with a rich game casserole.
