    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.

    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 2013 vintage is no different. To be honest we reckon some of his competitors must wonder how he does it at such a keen price!

    In the words of James Halliday, one of Australia’s leading critics, Quarisa’s wines offer “so much for so little” and this ’14 vintage Shiraz doesn’t buck the trend. Rating it 90/100, Halliday said “This is a very impressive medium-bodied shiraz – decant and pour for royalty.”

    Medium to full bodied, rich, dense black fruits and screaming out for a big, juicy steak!
