Yes, vino-lovers, after a small hiatus caused by, well, laziness, it’s that time again..
Today’s lovely wine is..
A gorgeous Western Australian Shiraz. As I mentioned before, Shirazes (and Syrrah’s in Europe) have a peppery, blackcurranty earthy taste, not totally unlike a Rioja, except they lack that deep red earth full body of a typical Rioja.
This wasn’t a massively expensive wine but it was a good one – easily quaffable and a definite ‘buy again’. I bought it was an every day drinker, but it would pass muster as a nice Saturday afternoon, sun going down unwinding on the paito underneath dappled shade drinker too.
