Matt Fowles wine match

With a choice be­tween smoked duck, veni­son and quail the best op­tion is wine that can stand up to any of th­ese dishes with­out over­pow­er­ing them.

Field and Game - - BUSH TO BANQUET -

The Sydney In­ter­na­tional Wine Com­pe­ti­tion is dif­fer­ent to the norm be­cause the judges do not taste the wine alone, they are judged with food, which is per­fect for the wines we pro­duce at Fowles Wines.

Our Are You Game? 2015 caber­net sau­vi­gnon was listed in the Top 100 of over 2000 wines en­tered and awarded the Blue Gold Medal and Ke­menys Per­pet­ual Tro­phy for Best Value Dry Red Ta­ble Wine.

2015 was in the top 10 warm­est years on record in Vic­to­ria and the warm­est year on record for our planet! Rain­fall was very low. This com­bi­na­tion of con­di­tions pro­duced red grapes of in­tense colour and flavour.

In the glass this wine is a dark inky red colour with some shades of pur­ple. The aroma is full of ripe dark berries and lots of dark cho­co­late, with some sub­tle mint and smoky notes. The palate is full-bod­ied, rich with a juicy black­berry qual­ity, a lovely soft fin­ish, and great length.

You can reap the ben­e­fit of lay­ing this bot­tle down for 10 years but if you’re cook­ing great wild food why wait!
