If you’ve only ever drunk one glass of Aussie red wine in your life (shame on you!), it’s a good bet it was a Shiraz.
Whether it’s a spicy, full-blooded Barossa Valley heavyweight; an earthy, complex Hunter Valley number; or an elegant, more subdued cooler climate red, Shiraz is a perpetual favourite of sluggers and sommeliers alike.
The rest of the world calls it Syrah, but Australian winemakers have made the variety their own; with top-shelf Shiraz such as Penfolds Grange and Henschke Hill of Grace earning cult followings and lofty praise around the world.
It’s an ideal match for red meat, with the body to balance the powerful flavours of everything from filet mignon to Uncle Terry’s charcoal special. Bold, boisterous and best served in a big glass.
As Australia’s most popular red, Shiraz delivers exceptional value for money to be had at every price point, and with thousands of different producers to sample, it’s the perfect drop for both filling the bottom row and whipping out on a Tuesday night.
When it comes to “Aussie Red”, there’re none more Aussie or Red than these bad boys. Search here by price, region or brand and have a box of good ol’ Australiana delivered to your place.
