Rich, deep and cheap. Australian shiraz is a killer deal. The Aussies grabbed some syrah from Europe, renamed it shiraz and planted it throughout hundreds of thousands of acres in South East Australia. The result: powerful, consistently tasty, affordable wine! Ted and I love it because that’s what 2 Guys Uncorked is all about.
This week we will review 3 well-priced Australian shirazes. At worst, they were tasty. At best, they were impressive.
