South of Adelaide you'll find Australia's Fleurie wine region. There's a special vineyard there, Stranger's Reach, where the vines see no irrigation, their grapes ripening in the hot Australian summer with the breezes from the Great Southern Ocean to cool them at night.

Handpicked, traditional basket presses squeeze every ounce of fantastic flavour from the grapes after fermentation and enjoy a lavish 18 months in French oak.

Superb by itself, or with any full-flavoured dish you can think of, it's drinking well already, but you could cellar this for another five to ten years with ease. Wonderfully rich, supple Cab to die for.

Dandelion Vineyards Pride of the If you think Australian wines are pretty much the same, you really should treat yourself to a bottle of this delicious Cabernet Sauvignon red wine. Coming from the small Fleurie Peninsula region, it's a powerhouse of ripe blackcurrant, blueberry flavours showing just how good Aussie wine can be.

Tom Cannavan Reviews

Don't just take our word for it; here's what wine writer Tom Cannavan has to say:

"Wow, this packs a wallop. It’s not just the voluminous, silky and rich abundance of the cassis aromas, but there’s chocolate and plum, cedary herbs, black olive and graphite, in a powerhouse nose that takes no prisoners. On the palate, it is, of course, a concentrated and powerful wine, but there’s an interesting cherryish kirsch-like higher-toned edge to the black fruit too, firm, chalk-dry tannins and more cherry to the acidity. This needs some robust foods – a steak maybe – right now, but will cellar for many years too I suspect"

The Region

The vineyards of South Australia produce half of Australia's total volume of wine, with regions as diverse as the lower altitude Barossa Valley, producing rich, structured reds, to the higher altitude vineyards such as the Adelaide Hills and Eden Valley regions, perfect for the production of crisp, dry whites.

Blue Cheese Burgers with Sweet Potato Wedges

Burgers and red wine are a match made in heaven but don’t forget the blue cheese element which could scupper your wine choice. To contrast the creamy, salty notes of the cheese, head to full, fruity reds with good acidity. A classic Aussie Cabernet Sauvignon will pair beautifully.

Feijoada

A robust, flavoursome Portuguese pork stew that's not for the faint-hearted, this needs a full, ripe red wine to stand up to the porky flavours. Try big New World reds such as Shiraz or Cabernet. Dandelion Vineyard's Pride of the Fleurieu Cabernet Sauvignon will definitely fit the bill.
