The Oddbins Take

Oveja Negra, if you hadn't gathered from the black sheep on the label, translates as 'Black Sheep' and that's exactly why we love these guys - they don't follow the herd with their wines.


Cabernet Franc and Carmenère is an unusual blend, but it works really well - Cab Franc's light body, finesse and peppery quality balance out the fuller, more ample fruit of Carmenère. We always thought it was a good idea not to try to fit in and this is further evidence thereof. Yeah boy!

    If you're underwhelmed by Rioja, unexcited about Bordeaux and think that 'farmyardy' is a disgusting way to describe wine, then this could be the case for you. From intensely juicy South African Shiraz to a brooding Chilean Cabernet Sauvignon and a zesty Kiwi Sauvignon Blanc, this tour of the New World will satiate vinous desires of the richer, fruitier and longer haul variety.
