Great Shiraz for those of us that have a sweet tooth and love wines from the McLaren Vale region. A very safe bet to bring to a party. Tasted March 2012.

It's only wine but I like it

Tasted from the 375ml, this is a wine that embodies what I dislike about Aussie wines (at least, those from the warmer growing region). Super ripe, almost pruney with confected flavours (like raspberry jam) and obvious wood tannin. Beyond a bit of pepper, one would never guess that this is syrah/shiraz as it is nearly devoid of any varietal character. For fans of the style.
