From South Eastern Australia
From the bottle:
'....our careful selection of grapes grown across the region has delivered wine with rich fruit flavours of plum and blackcurrant. Shiraz is a great food wine and this smooth, full bodied red has a warm spicy finish that is a great match for lamb and beef or tomato -based pasta dishes'
Price £7.99 (Available from Tesco, Sainsburys, Majestic Wine)
On the nose you get the spicy black pepper followed by the lovely fruity undertone of blackcurrants. Coming to the taste the spice is there as you would expect with a Shiraz with the fruit holding well. The acidity comes through slightly afterwards to balance. A medium bodied wine, with nicely rounded tannins.
