What a belter! Double Gold winning Coonawarra Cabernet made by the king of bang for buck Aussie Reds, Johnny Q!

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.

A Double Gold medal winner at one of the largest international wine shows in the Asia Pacific area, the CWSA (China Wine & Spirit Awards). A Double Gold medal means every judge awarded it a Gold medal score! Then throw in another Gold at one of Europe’s biggest wine shows, the Catavinum World Wine & Spirits Competition in Spain, and it’s just yet more bling for this label.

It then also made Cuisine magazine’s Top 10 NZ & International Bordeaux style reds, scoring 4 1/2 Stars and a Best Buy award. The judges said “The complexity from time spent ageing is evident with lovely dark fruit richness, softened plush tannins and aromas of fine leather and aged cedar.”

Using 100% Coonawarra fruit (a region best known for its Cabernet) – it’s a flavour-packed style red, medium to full bodied style and loaded to the gunnels with lush, velvety, juicy red and black fruit and cassis flavours (wine snobs will also tell you to look out for mint, dark chocolate and vanilla!). It is seriously, seriously easy to enjoy!

Quarisa’s 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. To be honest we reckon some of his competitors must wonder how he does it at such a keen price! Oh and if you’re pairing it with a feed you can’t go wrong with a chargrilled sirloin!
