One of the world’s most classic and popular styles of red wine, Bordeaux-inspired blends have spread from their homeland in France to nearly every corner of the New World. Typically based on either Cabernet Sauvignon or Merlot and supported by Cabernet Franc, Malbec and Petit Verdot, the best of these are densely hued, fragrant, full of fruit and boast a structure that begs for cellar time. Somm Secret—Blends from Bordeaux are generally earthier compared to those from the New World, which tend to be fruit-dominant.
We cannot think of Australia without thinking of Ben Haines. We have put his Pinot Noir in wine club before, and now we are bringing his brand back to you with his red blend. Ben Haines emcompasses everything we want to represent. Passion, good winemaking and wines with a sense of place. “What drives me every day is the connection with place, and its interpretation through winemaking. Learning from the past, being in the present and fostering excitement for the future to create expressive wines with balance, harmony and longevity.” – Ben Haines, winemaker
