The Barry Bros Shiraz Cabernet 2016

If you like a Shiraz Cab blend, this one is a very safe bet. If the red and white capsule doesn't shout "pick me" from your wine rack the taste of the first bottle will send you back for more. Reliably good and 'no surprise' given the Barry family winemaking heritage in the Clare Valley. This wine is made by the second generation, brothers Tom and Sam Barry.

The Barry Bros Shiraz Cabernet 2016

"A rush of mulberries and blackberries then comes spice, florals and coffee grounds with a whiff of eucalypt. The palate is finely tuned, medium-bodied with supple tannins and some grip on the finish." 90 Points, James Halliday, The Wine Companion 2016 (on the 2015 vintage).

"In the under $25 category, this wine is hard to beat in  terms of quality and value for money. Vibrant and approachable style for this  classic Australian red blend, with a juicy red fruit core and surprising depth  of flavour right through to the finish. Highlights the promising winemaking  future for the Barry family through young brothers Tom and Sam (hence the Barry  Brothers Label!) Tasted at the Queensland Wine Show this year and it ''knocked  our socks off'' when we looked at the recommended retail price.  A point reinforced at the Melbourne Wine  show, when it collected yet another trophy. Impressive in every sense!" 95 points winegenius.com.

"A somewhat garish retro label for this 70/30% blend of shiraz and cabernet sauvignon, but there is a wealth of juicy and rich blackberry and blackcurrant fruit, cosseted by warm vanillan oak." 91 Points, James Halliday, The Wine Companion 2014, on the 2012 Vintage.
