Its colour can be derived from a vast assortment of grape varietals ranging from grapes that are reddish, deep purple, and even a beautiful blue on the colour scale. These grapes give rise to a wine that is colour classified with such descriptors as garnet, almost black, dark red, light red, ruby red, opaque purple, deep violet, maroon and the list goes on. It is the grape skins that are responsible for the red wine’s distinct colour spectrum. The skins are in contact with the grape’s juice during the fermentation process, allowing the dispersion of both colour and tannins. The individual wine’s particular red hue depends on the grape type used in the process and the length of time the skin’s pigmentation is in contact with juice. There are right around 50 key red wine varietals that consistently manifest themselves in today’s worldwide wine market.

This is dense, but has a sleek, racy feel overall, with lively black currant, anise and raspberry fruit laced with maduro tobacco, savory herb and iron notes.

This has a hearty, slightly rugged core of dark currant, plum sauce and fig paste, while the edges are polished and racy, with alder wood, sweet spice and anise providing a nice contrast through the finish.

This is packed, boasting a great, rugged mountain fruit feel to the chunky but integrated structure that supports the dark fig, currant and blackberry fruit.

Has a fragrant musky oak aroma, gentle spices too; there's some fresh mineral tones, fine spiced cherry and sweet pepper. It has handy shape and build through to the back palate where it launches delicate aromas on a fan of tannin. Long cherry flavour - superb.

The name for this wine is often joked about. Some thought the wine to be so big and heavy that your arm hardly worked after consuming a reasonable amount.

A ripe, voluptuously textured effort, it offers up loads of sweet kirsch, blackberry, ground pepper and hints of flowers to go with a medium to full-bodied, layered and nicely focused feel on the palate. Sweetly fruited, with low acidity and a sexy, hard to resist profile, this beauty should be enjoyed over the coming 3-5 years.
