Gold Medal – New Zealand International Wine Show 2018
Double Gold Medal – China Wine & Spirits Best Value Awards 2018

With a name like The Great Bonza it can only be from Australia and it's that classic Australian blend of Shiraz and Cabernet with the added bonus of a good dollop of Durif (10%). Produced by John Quarisa who's well known for wines such as Johnny Q, Caravan and Shot in the Dark. Johnny likes his wines to express big personality, juicy fruit and excellent value for money. This one fits that brief perfectly. 

NZIWS 2018 (2017 Vintage)
"The wine offers lovely fruit sweetness with seductive oak complexity, showing plum jam, blueberry and olive characters with a touch of dried herb note. Juicy, smooth and lingering with plenty of tasty flavours".

4 Stars & 18/20 Raymond Chan, November 2018 (2017 Vintage)
"Full, dark, black-hued ruby-red with slight garnet hints on the edge. The nose is a little restrained in expression with aromas of dark-red and black-berried fruit with dark raspberries harmoniously interwoven with subtle blackcurrant nuances. This has a stylish intensity that grows in the glass revealing cassis hand herb elements. Full-bodied, the palate is sweetly rich and plush with flavours of dark raspberries and blackcurrant fruit along with cassis and herb detail. The fruit forms a finely concentrated core which is supported by fine-grained tannin extraction and structure with fresh, lacy acidity which enlivens the mouthfeel. The flavours carry with good linearity and drive to a lingering finish. A little shy on the nose initially, this shows good depth and intensity of blackcurrant and dark raspberry fruit unfolding cassis and herb notes on a fine, grained textured palate with a fresh mouthfeel. Match with herb-marinated beef and lamb dishes over the next 5+ years. A blend of 60% Shiraz, 30% Cabernet Sauvignon and 10% Durif from South Eastern Australia, fermented to 14.54% alc., the wine aged 6 months in oak and tank with staves".
