The Great Bonza Shiraz-Cabernet 2015



Ripe, full and luscious, the palate bursts with blackberries, blackcurrants and plum compote, with a silky tannic backbone allowing secondary notes of cinnamon, mint and roasted coffee beans to unwind on the long, smooth finish. Winner of three gold medals, it’s a big rich red you’re sure to love. This is Johnny Q at his inimitable best – sourcing individual parcels of Shiraz and Cabernet Sauvignon from vineyards across Australia’s most premium wine regions and blending to perfection. There’s even 10% of Durif (aka Petit Sirah) in this to add another dimension.

Excellent with savory meat dishes.

  • Rich, full, ripe

Producer: Quarisa Wines

Established in 2005 and based in the McPherson Ranges in rural New South Wales, the small family business of Quarisa leases winery space and sources fruit from various established regions throughout Australia to craft full-flavoured wines of excellent value. For John and Josephine Quarisa, Australians of Italian heritage, their mottos ‘Passion is everything’ and ‘Never take life too seriously’ perfectly represent the heartfelt commitment they have towards their venture and life in general. Their passion extends beyond the boundaries of the wine industry  into their home, their family, and their hobbies and through the simplest things associated with everyday life. Laughter and fun are intrinsically mixed with hard work and good times. This life long, energetic partnership started at school when John and Josephine became high-school sweethearts and over the years they have grown and developed and are still passionately working together, laughing and loving every step of the way.

As a winemaker for over 30 years,during which time he has worked for some of the country’s largest and most well-known wineries including McWilliams, Casella and Nugan Estate, John has been awarded some of Australia’s greatest accolades including both the Jimmy Watson and Stodart Trophies. International and Australian Wine Show Judge, John’s experience and passion drove him to develop a range of wines that reflected the attributes he loved in great wines; down to earth, full of character and approachable are words which describe both the winemaking style and the winemaker himself.

In establishing their range of wines the Quarisas have drawn on their greatest passions in life; their children, love of art and Josephine’s artistic talents, their family, heritage and John himself, the fun - loving winemaker. The Johnny Q and Treasures range have been designed with an international audience in mind and the labels draw inspiration from John and his family.  Johnny Q features John actually dressed up for the action shots on the label, while Treasures captures an innocent yet unforgettable moment in time of John and Josephine’s children on a family holiday at the beach.
