Simply brilliant shiraz
Just when you thought it had sunk without trace, shiraz is back with a bang. t’s not often that you spot a marked trend in the wine world. Mostly things trundle along much the same as usual. Prosecco, New Zealand sauvignon blanc, malbec, yada, yada, yada… But what’s this? Suddenly a whole load of delicious shiraz is hitting the shelves. This is particularly welcome from Australia, whose output had shrunk to a choice between sickly-sweet cheapies and overextracted, chewy monsters that were practically a meal in themselves.
