Fox Gordon By George Cabernet Tempranillo

Small volume, artisan-crafted reds rarely come as affordable or as readily available as this. A beautifully restrained, honed and textured finish is the trademark of each of Tash Mooney’s wines, here bringing control and definition to generous, up-front blackberry and blackcurrant fruit. There’s an air of lifted violet perfume and an undercurrent of tempranillo’s savoury spice. Tash names this her favourite wine of all – and it’s not hard to see why. $14.25 at 1st Choice.
