A Tasty Australian Shiraz – Evans & Tate Split River

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

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.

Price: $7.99  

3.5 out of 5

    I’m loving this review, Linda. My wine tastes keep changing as I experiment and it’s so helpful to read such an in depth review. This will be one I’ll try and will serve it with apps at a girls’ lunch in the warmer months. Thanks so much.

      Glad I could be of help. I love tasting different wines and have even gotten help at some of the restaurants I visit when I tell them I often rate wines and am interested in finding out more about them. Hope you and your girlfriends enjoy it. Check out our post on Summer Picnic Wines for a great wine selection for warmer weather.
