Rhone Style Blends

This category pays homage to the juicy, earthy red wines from the classic Cotes-du-Rhone wine region in southern France.  These wines are blends, each varietal contributing a unique personality trait to the final wine such as; syrah enhances the structure and complexity, grenache for it’s easy-drinking fruitiness and the brooding, leathery mourvedre.

Waltzing Matilda is a Rhone-styled red wine from Southern Australia with shiraz (syrah) and grenache – a winning blend that’s easy-drinking, fresh, juicy and smooth with pure fruit characteristics along with splashes of spice and floral notes, very quaffable.  Juanita Roos
