Esk Valley Gimblett Gravels Merlot Cabernet Sauvignon Malbec 2014 $19 ★★★★★Esk Valley Merl-Cab-Mal NV (1)

Super-glossy and garnet-black in the glass, this seriously-overdelivers-for-the-price wine has racked up an impressive pedigree of awards at major wine shows in recent years.  I love the aroma of soy, blackcurrant leaf, dried herbs and carob.  Black plum, biscuit oak and a backbone of strong yet supple tannins make this a very big, impressive wine priced at a fraction of what it deserves.  Delicious.
