Classic Aussie Cab Shiraz in all its ripe fruit, toasty spice and smoky liquorice glory. It's as at home as a glass solo as it is with a hearty plateful of bangers and mash. For a full throttle, generously fruity red, charge open the Quarter Horse.
"A tasty, easy-going blend of crunchy Cabernet and spicy Shiraz. Aussie red with a smile"
Dan Parrott Buyer for Australia
This is a welcoming red from a cellar in northern Victoria. It was founded in the 1950s by a family of Italian origin, often the case in Australia. Although they have many Italian varieties planted, Quarter Horse is a classic Aussie blend of ripe, curranty Cabernet and spicy liquorice Shiraz, well ripened in the Victorian vineyards. It's the work of winemaker Andrew Byers, a talented guy who first thought he'd become a professional golfer, but decided after a stretch of work experience at the famous Villa Maria winery, that his talents lay there. His dad was mightily relieved! This is rich, ripe red – supple and fruity enough to enjoy on its own, but spot on, too, with marinated lamb shanks or some melt in the mouth pulled pork.
