Drinking Shiraz Down Annie’s Lane

Another delicious Shiraz from the annies laneland of kangaroos, venomous spiders and beer swilling crowds. Deep ruby red garment and a pronounced, sweet nose with vanilla, black pepper and blackberry. Full bodied, rich and with a somewhat medicinal –eucalyptus- streak. Good acidity and soft tannins in the tasty finish, which is smooth and long, packed with red fruit and spice.

    Some good shiraz comes out of the Clare Valley although it’s best known for it’s rieslings. But I like shiraz from there. Another good reliable label in the same region for shiraz is Taylors. They’d might be hard for you to get hold of but a step up to something really good would be: Tim Adams, Leasingham or Pikes, amongst others.

    The famous Australian region for shiraz is the Barossa but just as good, in my opinion, is McLaren Vale. All the above regions are in South Australia where the best Aussie reds come from – in the opinion of a parochial expat.

      hi Australianman. I agree, particularly on the Leasingham. We had the Bin61 for a couple of years. Truly delicious at 29.99 CDN. Unfortunately the item has been delisted by the province state monopoly (Liquor Distribution Branch) so we have it no more. I am also fond of Margaret, Frankland River Shiraz. Perhaps Barossa has produced too many big jammy varietals and now it has become a stereotype. One of the first ones I enjoyed was Mocculta, but that was a few years back. Cheers. ps. can you provide the link to your blog? ciao mate.
