While Hamelin Bay have a rather low profile, here's a winery producing rather tasty traditional Margaret River wines. 

This Cabernet Merlot is a ripe and chunky style with punchy flavours and lots of 'em. Cedar, dark berries and more dark berries is the focus here, with light tannins and a long finish.

In other words, here is a chunky Margaret River red, from a great vintage, made by an underrated winery (and at a great price).

Expert Reviews

There’s a lot happening here, mocha notes on one side, savoury/earthy olive on the other, dark berry fruits occupying the middle ground. 93 points - James Halliday - Halliday's Wine Companion

How's it taste?

Colour: A deep red centre surrounded by a bright red rim. Bouquet: Lifted red fruits, raspberry and cherry aromas, with underlying cigar box and plum jam characters. Palate: A refined and elegant wine. This Cabernet Merlot has restraint and brooding power with a succulent mid-palate. The finish is dry with fine dry emery tannins.

How was it made?

68% cabernet sauvignon, 24% merlot and 3% malbec, estate-grown, destemmed, fermented with cultured yeast, matured for 12 months in French barriques (16% new).

A really great wine deal must must be accompanied by great value. There is nothing better than getting an incredible bottle of wine for a fraction of what similar quality wines sell for. My recommendations gives you the very best "Value for money" wines at different pricepoints.
