Great red, bu beaten by the Malbec. This is still better than a number of Aussie Cab Savs at the same price. Keep these bargains and secrets coming !!

Price should not come into the equation with this great Reserve Cab Sav. Stunning Argentinian wine and hard to go beyond.

Big fan of Central Otago Pinot and this is well worth trying and the price allows you to buy much more than some other expensive Pinots..... and still have quality quaffing

Another great wine from Sth America. Full flavoured and a distinctive falvour. Great vlaue for money and will keep a stock of these for special occasions. NOT your average quaffing wine - way too good for that !!

Definitely a 5* wine from a great vineyard. One of my favourite grape varities and Argentina and "Benjamin" have a perfect combination here. Not a hugh selection of Malbec around, but why would you go past this on anyway !!

Another excellent Argentinian wine and a grape I have not tried previously. Lovely flavours and aroma and quite a different drink from standard Cab Sav or Malbec. Improved once it was opened and got to room temperature

A typical Marlborough Sav Blanc - which is a positive rating. Quite fruity if its not over chilled and very easy drinking. Excellent value for money and well worth repeating as a good quaffing beverage
