I can’t believe that it’s Thursday! All day yesterday I thought it was Tuesday so you now know why I am putting out my Wine Wednesday post on Thursday. I can’t believe I lost a whole day somewhere! Ah well, any day is a good day for wine, so here is another “Wine Wednesday” post featuring a delicious wine that won’t put a big dent in your wallet. I am no aficionado of wine but do love learning about all the different wines, their characteristics and which are best to serve with what foods. Mostly I go by my own tastes and those of my sipping buddies to bring you a collection of wines that you won’t be afraid to serve your guests. Cheers!
2010 Evans & Tate Split River Shiraz
A fresh Australian Shiraz from the western regions of the country that is a basic, good quality, unpretentious wine for everyday use. This Shiraz is very fruit-driven with flavors of plum, cherry and mulberry with hints of spice and earthiness, what I would call a kinder and gently Shiraz. It has some well-seasoned oak characteristics which gives it a nice aroma and a soft finish. This is a wine that needs the accompaniment of food to thoroughly enjoy it. Overall, a really decent wine for a great price.
Food Pairing: Pair it with barbecue, our rack of lamb or venison, bolder more flavorful foods, as well as hors d’œuvres such as pates.
Rating: 3.5/5 corks
