Tesco's Finest range is very good at delivering regional and varietal typicity at keen prices, and this Barossa Shiraz is a great example. It's 94% Shiraz, with a little Grenache, Mataro (aka Mourvèdre) and Cabernet Sauvignon added for seasoning. Full-bodied, with plump black fruits, some subtle oak spicing and a twist of black pepper on the palate, this would be a perfect choice to accompany steak with black peppercorn sauce.
