Variety Shiraz
WINERY Annie's Lane
RRP 25

Sparkling reds such as this Clare Valley wine have a special affinity with Christmas. It has a nose of jammy dark berries, spice and tarry complexity. There's ripe, plump flavour, a creamy texture, soft tannins and a long, smoky aftertaste. (Crown seal; 13.5 per cent alcohol.)
Ageing? No.
Food ideas Roast turkey; Peking duck.
