McLaren Vale Shiraz Tasting note

This month in honor of “Aussie Wine Month ” I have limited myself to drinking Australian wines only.

Mclaren Vale Shiraz, a remarkably symmetrical wine whose approach and finish are completely harmonious. The black plum and apple fruit are ripe and could have ended sweet and syrupy; instead you’re left with an elegant, dry kiss good-bye. Pour a glass alongside the nicely balanced sweet and sour accents in a dish like Korean-Style Grilled Beef Short Ribs and Scallions

This translated into non-vinous English means;

This wine’s sweety jam flavors cleverly hide the impact of a juggernaut of alcohol. Mouth puckering tannins so dry, you will involuntarily suck in all four cheeks simultaneously while it finishes with the smoothness and balance of a well spanked arse!


About winephantom

The recession has hit hard, no more tipping the last 1/2 glass out of the champagne bottle because it's a tad too warm. My lender would be kicking down my door for his interest if he knew I was drinking at all. Now I spend my time with the €5-€10 bottles discovering some real value and encountering some swamp donkeys to be avoided. This blog is a Wine Diploma holding palate, forced to trawl the murky depths populated by the bare knuckle fighters of the "entry level" wine world, trying to reveal the real crackers. Tasting notes exposed!! Regular explanations of the rubbish that are tasting notes! Wine Waffle indeed! Stories and trivia about wine.
