Matt’s review:

Get the BBQ ready as this fine Barossa Shiraz is primed and ready to be enjoyed with richly flavoured BBQ grub. Big and bold, with juicy dark fruit, black cherry, smoky bacon, mocha, pepper corn, and leather on the nose. The palate shows refreshing dark berries, black cherry, pepper, and spice. Enjoy this complex and value-priced Barossa Valley Shiraz with BBQ fare or hearty winter dishes. My favourites: tangy ribs, gourmet burgers, smoked brisket, or charcoal grilled beef tenderloin. Winemaker Chris Hancock, MW (Hon.) who’s crafted one of the most iconic wines in the world, Penfolds Grange, continues to make this wine which is one of the most impressive value-priced Aussi Shiraz’s you’ll find. Enjoy 2017-2021. Tasted March 2017. 90 points. Matt Steeves – http://www.quercusvino.ca
