TOM GABLE ON BEST WINE FOR THE MONEY
GUEST BLOG / @tomgable—PillartoPost.org wine buff has located a remarkable wine at a fair price that goes well with early Fall BBQ’s and burgers and/or pizza.
His latest find is from Australia, a 2016 Kangarilla Road Shiraz McLaren Vale at about $20 (near Adelaide). “This Aussie Shiraz offers a dull mid-dark garnet with peppery, manzanita, and a ripe grape nose. It is definitely fat, grapey; a bit one-dimensional with a long hot (14.5 alc) chewy finish,” says Gable.
Shiraz is a full-bodied red wine is a popular planting in the Rhone Valley, France and in Australia.
As we mentioned in an earlier post, wines like these at fair prices and excellent taste seldom last long in wine shops.
