McGuigan, The Philosophy 2012

Australian wine giant McGuigan has released one of its most ambitious wines yet in the UK – a Cabernet Sauvignon/Shiraz blend priced at £100.

Called The Philosophy, the 2012 vintage is made from small parcels of Cabernet Sauvignon and Shiraz grapes grown in the Clare Valley and Langhorne Creek in the Barossa, with McGuigan keeping aside the best-quality fruit for the blend.

Boasting “deep layers of cassis, blueberries and plum underpinned by vanilla and chocolate”, the “rich and full-bodied” red spends two years in French and American oak before bottling, and a further two years in bottle before release.

RRP: £100.
