Stepping into the world of red wines can seem daunting at first, with countless varietals to choose from. Australian brand Rewild offers a range of eco-conscious, 100% vegan-friendly wines, making the process of choosing your perfect red wine easier.

  1. Red Blend – Rewild’s Red Blend is ideal if you fancy a lighter style red wine. It bursts with fresh fruit flavours, featuring vibrant notes of blackcurrant, ribena, and blueberry. It’s great for outdoor occasions like picnics or alfresco dining, pairing wonderfully with deli meats and cheese.
  2. Merlot – Merlot is the perfect crowd-pleaser and an excellent choice for a date night. It’s medium-bodied, with abundant blackcurrant and plum fruit, hints of chocolate, and aniseed. It pairs particularly well with caramelised veggies and braised meats, offering a wonderful balance of flavours.
  3. Shiraz – If you have a penchant for dessert, then Shiraz might just be your wine. It boasts fresh blackberry and raspberry fruits, alongside decadent hints of chocolate and vanilla. This medium-bodied, smooth yet dry wine pairs well with rich, full-flavoured dishes, or even your favourite chocolate dessert!
  4. Cabernet Sauvignon – If you need a wine for a dinner party or family affair, Rewild’s Cabernet Sauvignon is an exceptional accompaniment. It has light blackcurrant blueberry aromas, hints of black olive, dried herb, and brambly notes. The mid-palette sweetness balances the acidity perfectly, making it a delightful pair with red meat courses.
