Definition Barossa Shiraz

A sleeping giant of a wine that deserves to be on the front page of every wine magazine in the world. Bright, with staggering complexity (think tangy grape skins) and lift on the finish. This is Shiraz with vitality and – the first time I think I’ve used this word in a tasting note – urgency. It feels packed with excitement, drawing you into the next sip, surging with fruit and a drift of cheeky spice.

At £10.99 this is a steal and headline act from Australia’s Barossa. With the weather turning frosty, this is liquid comfort for the colder months.
