|GET the family together around this, a perfect match
with lamb roast or chops off the holiday barbie.
ONE TO NOTE: IF you like a good lamb roast, or just good ol' lamb chops off the barbie, a great wine to spoil the family with as you enjoy these great lamb-and-wine get-togethers over the coming holidays, is a Voyager Estate 2011 Cabernet Sauvignon Merlot from Western Australia's Margaret River.
88% Cab Sav, 8% Merlot and just a touch of Petit Verdot to round it out, this is a rich and flavoursome wine that's been almost tailor-made for enjoyment with lamb: it has wonderful sweet dark- and red-berry fruit flavours to the fore, suggestions of bayleaf for a touch or savouriness, and is rounded out with finely-grained tannins.
Its $70 a bottle for that special Festive family occasion, and if you're not into lamb, match it up with a Black Angus beef fillet with wild mushrooms and baked vegies.
