They say Australia is the “Lucky” country… and with its abundance of big rich reds we’d have to agree. “Luckily” for us they’re only 3-hours fly time or a 2-3 day sea passage from our shores… giving us ready access to the many great reds they’re globally renowned for. At everyday prices they do some of the best reds in the world, in the prestige category they do wines like Penfolds Grange circa $1,000 bottle. In between they produce reds like this premium $30.00 The Group Fever Merlot complexed with small parcels of Mourvedre and Cabernet from the legendary McLaren Vale region. Crafted by the talented winemaking team at Constellation Brands Australian winery operations, The Group brand is being retired. Many FWD customers will have purchased and enjoyed The Group Shiraz and Group Chardonnay from our earlier spectacular brand clearances. This is the last Group wine CLEARANCE ever… make it your regular house red at a spectacular $16.00 bottle OFF… enjoy a serious McLaren Vale Merlot blend at the almost giveaway price of $13.99. If you stock up and drink this as your go to red for the next 12-months (longer if you can) you’ll keep a lid on your wine budget (probably reduce it) and drink top shell Aussie Merlot.


Crammed with rich aromas of dark cherries, plums, black liquorice, hints of cured meats and subtle oak.


Dark berry fruits caress the tastebuds, blackberries, mulberries, hints of pomegranate and cassis emerge throughout the palate journey. The tannins are robust and chewy, complimenting the rich core of fruit, very typical of Mourvedre and Cabernet. An outstanding, everyday priced red, to open as often as you please, now through 2025, one that everyone will find delicious. Serve with BBQed meats or hard cheese.

I was collecting some wine from Lunn Ave and it was on tasting. I had a sip and liked it but was unsure as I was in a hurry so I only bought 2 bottles to try with food. I have not been disappointed, Its got the softness of merlot with a finish of the cab sav and nice and smooth a 2019 had enough time to be very drinkable. I'm not an expert only an enthusiastic amateur, but I do know what a nice compliment is to have food. Our guests loved it and couldn't believe the price. I'm buying a case ...

Good easy to drink wine. Ripe red fruits and full bodied. Great value at this price point.

19th May 2023 | Gavin McNaught

I was absolutely delighted with this wine. The taste and pleasure from drinking it was exactly as described in the tasting notes. At your special price this was indeed an absolute bargain. Cheers Maggie.

Smooth drop that tastes as if it costs way more than it does.

18th May 2023 | Aengus Jankowsky

I really enjoyed it. Nice and smooth and a great price!

18th May 2023 | Bev McNaughten

Very nice, soft and fruity wine. Great value for the price

17th May 2023 | Yulia

A great wine that could do with a few more years of cellaring.

17th May 2023 | Carolyn McGivern

Great easy drinking merlot, goes well with anything you like,great after a few Coronas on a Friday

17th May 2023 | craig jones

The report of all the flavours is spot on- I am definitely tasting blackberry and the other fruits. It is strong, lasting taste - great with food or to drink on its own. My only preference would be to slightly sweeter wine, fewer berries, more sweet red plus.

17th May 2023 | Hazel Lanyon

Smooth and pleasing oak aroma, but not aggressive. First few sips bring, among others, spicy and earthly tastes without being too fruity. However, if the tastes could last longer, that would elevate the wine up at least a notch. Furthermore, the tastes seems to have lost a bit further down the sips. Having said that, the wine worth the price.

17th May 2023 | Hay Yiu Yau

A nice wine and drinks really well now.

17th May 2023 | Campbell Rutherford

I don't often look for a Merlot and especially not a blend. However, after experiencing the full bodied flavour and long finish I had to buy a few!

A pleasant wine that was well received with a lamb roast dinner.

16th May 2023 | Janehamilton

This is an extremely pleasant wine for casual drinking, pleasing flavour, body and bouquet and very good value at the price.

16th May 2023 | Paul Fielder

I recently had the pleasure of savoring a Merlot blend wine that completely captured my senses. From the moment I poured it into my glass, its deep, ruby red hue promised an exceptional experience. The wine's appearance alone spoke of elegance and sophistication.

16th May 2023 |

Switching from white to red for the cooler months and decided to start with The Group Fever. A very enjoyable, smooth wine, and incredibly well priced. I definitely wasn't disappointed.

16th May 2023 | Bridgit Tarr

Very nice medium bodied merlot blend. Great value, makes for an easy everyday option.

Stunning wine exceptional value will buy agaim

16th May 2023 | Lawrence Collis

Stunning wine at an awesome price. Rich and full bodied but with a smoothness I wasn't expecting. I am going to get some more.

16th May 2023 | Kathy Hartnoll

An honest wine. I think of a typical Aussie red crossed with an Italian East-coast red. Hard to believe it costs less than $15.

16th May 2023 | Andrew

Beautiful smooth wine rich in flavour. Bold, with a touch of oakiness and very drinkable.

16th May 2023 | Hana

Terrific value. Easy drinking everyday wine.

16th May 2023 | Callum

Great wine specially at this price. A good balance of spice and fruits. Not too try.

16th May 2023 | Basir Noutash

Good drinking. Exceptional drinking. Definitely would recommend & buy again.

16th May 2023 | Mark Riley

No such thing as perfection but for the price this is very close. Friends all say, this is good wine Peter.

16th May 2023 | Peter Lupi

Lovely blend full of fruit and Will cellar well for a few years yet. Great wine at the price.

16th May 2023 | Gary

I've had 2 bottles, the first had excellent depth and vanilla. The second has unfortunately been a bit thin and TBH, like a $15 wine. So only 3 glasses rating.

16th May 2023 | Keith Young

Beautiful, rich and concentrated. Blackberry and plums. Perfect for a winter roast beef

16th May 2023 | Sean - Mitchell

Delicious wine, splendid value for money- so glad I bought a dozen rather than my usual modest 1/2 doz.

16th May 2023 | Christopher Thomas Hart

Such a great deal! A beautiful red, went very well with BBQ grilled steak. All our guests complimented the wine!

16th May 2023 | Philip

Deliciously drinkable with a good punch.

16th May 2023 | Kay

Unbelievable for the price, great full mouth feel expected from a top merlot. After an hour in the carafe it was even more sensational
