Blends $15-$20 Hamelin Bay 2009 Rampant Red “Never fails to impress, does this wine from the southern Margaret River appellation. Real mouthful of flavour with ripe oppulent fruit displaying a mix of black fruits and plum pudding. The tannins are typically supple, while the oak is deftly understated.”
