Backbenchers do not have a seat in the ministry and individually have little power to influence policy. Merlot has always taken a backseat compared to more fashionable wines.
Although often misunderstood, when carefully crafted in the vineyard and winery, merlot can be a rich, full flavoured, yet smoot and soft wine.
This wine displays a rich spectrum of plum and spiced berry fruits. Wonderful with roast beef, smoked meats and for afternoon tea with fruit cake.
A Frontbencher is a member of the Ministry and spokesperson for the Government. Like a good frontbencher, our shiraz speaks volumes about our wines.
Seamless and distinct, this shiraz is rich, long flavoured, with soft tannins, fragrant spice, pepper and dark berry fruit. This wine displays eminence and class. It is fantastic with chargrilled lamb or a thick sirloin.
