    Johnny Q is John Quarisa (the winemaker) and he’s been around the traps making wine for some of the biggest names in the Aussie wine world before he kicked off his own cool little wine label. This is his Johnny Q Cabernet Sauvignon and it’s been a winner year after year after year.

    His motto is “you just can’t take life too seriously” – but you’d seriously have to be a mug to miss out on trying this one. Consistently over delivering for the money, his 2015 Johnny Q Cabernet Sauvignon vintage is no different. To be honest we reckon some of his competitors must wonder how he does it at such a keen price!

    Rich, sweetly fruited, medium to full bodied Cabernet from South Australia. Johnny calls it “down to earth” and reckons that even though it’s a full bodied style, you’ll find it a pretty easy going drop fit for any occasion.

    A Double Gold medal winner and 86/100 by Aussie’s No.1 wine guru James Halliday, who said “A well made wine, the use of oak staves joining with luscious blackcurrant fruit“. Perfect with a nice cut of sirloin!
