The Oddbins Take

It all started when Captain James Cook and Sir Joseph Banks were given a "secret mission" by the British government to seek out the "great Southern continent". They took on this "mission" and stumbled upon a wild rock formation, bountiful with birdlife, plants and rich soils blessed by the sun and rivulets of water. Absolute ideal winemaking conditions some might say.


Hang on...so, the British government send these chaps across the world on ostensibly, a "scientific expedition" and they just so happened to stumble upon a land perfect for winemaking?
Pah! They knew what they were doing.


They knew that this "discovery" would one day equip the world with a dark red wine with a vibrant nose of cassis, violets, boysenberry and the finest toasted oak. They knew that a richness of fruit would emerge on first taste followed by a beautifully integrated oak and fine dusty tannin creating a long and delicious finish.


I bet they also want us to think that a "boysenberry" is a real fruit...
