The Barossa Valley is known throughout the world for long aging wines, such as Penfolds Grange. But don’t be fooled, it’s also home to plenty of good value, hearty and honest red wines well suited to early drinking, like this one. It is deeply coloured and has a classic Barossa feel with blackberry compote fruits over a bed of sweet mocha oak. Dry, generous, and mouthfulling, it is well pitched for a mid-week shiraz with fleshy dark fruit flavours and more sweet oak on a supple palate with a nice touch of pepper to finish. Enjoy with lamb chops.
