More about this wine from McLaren Vale, Australia
The Nashwauk vineyard overlooks the coast of the Fleurieu Peninsula and the town of McLaren Vale, which has become a super trendy wine region of late. The 1990s saw the boom (and huge bust) of big wine brands like Yellow Tail that came from the land Down Under, but wines like this Shiraz really show how amazing Aussie wine can be. The afternoon cool sea breeze is a big reason why this juice is bursting with flavor. Plus the landscape is simply gorgeous.

The juice is big and jammy with a deluxe creamy texture that is only rivaled by some serious fruit like blueberries, plum & fig jams, and bright red raspberry. Eventually, the fruit fades into fresh cracked black pepper, baking spice, and a touch of vanilla. This Shiraz is indeed what Australian wine is all about. So pass on picking up the Yellow Tail and give your mouth a real deal trip to the land of Kangaroos and Koala Bears!
How to drink it

While...

An unexpected Polar Vortex has afforded you a much needed excuse to stay in on Friday night. You got dinner over with so you could finally lay out the Trader Joe's dessert buffet and pop on a cheesy Christmas movie.

Eating...

This rich Aussie Shiraz works perfectly with just about any hearty dish in your repertoire, but savory braised beef stew over fluffy mashed potatoes will knock it out of the park on a chilly winter night.
