Tony Aspler’s Weekly Wine Pick: a robust, fruity shiraz from Australia


Published:

This is a powerful, fruit-driven Aussie shiraz. Deep ruby in colour, with a minty-menthol nose of ripe blackberries with a spicy cedar note. On the palate, expect a ripe blackberry flavour with a savoury herbal note and a firm tannic finish.

Food match: BBQ ribs, aged cheddar

 

Wyndham Estate George Wyndham Founder’s Reserve Shiraz 2009, Australia, $19.95. LCBO #107904
