Yep, beef and red wine are a match made in heaven! Glad it was good. Is this wine a blend or a single varietal?

Was this wine from New Zealand? The name kinda sounds like that.

You win something - we just haven't figured out what yet! It's funny about names, isn't it? I can usually pick out the Australian names. Italy is kind of a given ...no prizes for guessing those

@ Chef June- This wine is from New Zealand..
@Kitchen elf - 82% Merlot, 15% Cabernet Sauvignon, 3% Cabernet Franc... so its a lovely blend ! :) Have a look at the Bottlenotes site for more details on this wine...
