Aldi, Specially Selected Australian Shiraz, South Australia, Australia 2020
(at Winter warmers 2022 tasting, 31 Jul 2022)
Drinking Window: 2022 - 2023
My one word review of this wine is “power”. All the usual Aussie Shiraz descriptors are here with spice and black fruit leading the charge, but what sets this wine apart is its long-lasting satisfying tarry depth. For £5.99 it’s never going to be the world’s finest wine, but bottom line, this wine is better than it needs to be for this price. So if you’re after a bargain for winter parties, simple casseroles, beefy dishes, TV dinners, this is the bottle. It’s also a fab all-rounder to have on standby for festive guests dropping by without worrying too much about how much you’re pouring – as long as you’ve got a few extra bottles on standby!
