Paired with: Annabel Langbein’s Steak and kidney pie in Canvas Magazine NZ Herald Sat 4th June 2022

Boost your core-ingredient count from two (steak + kidney) to six by serving up a gloriously spicy glass of this blend of merlot, tempranillo, cabernet franc and cabernet sauvignon. Roaring with ripe boysenberry, plum and liquorice layers on the nose and palate alongside a dusting of dark cocoa, this cockle-warming red will have you hankering for something savoury, peppery and ribsticking. Plush, plump and smooth to sip – it’s a vibrant, wallet-friendly wine for any day of your Wintery week.
