Uncork This - Paringa 2007 Shiraz South Australia

It's not often you find a really, really good Aussie shiraz for two fivers. Paringa can do it year after year since they own their vineyards and therefore can keep costs low. The 2007 effort tastes like an Australian fruit salad: blueberry and blackberry followed up by a smidge of eucalyptus and a wash of soft leather. Dry and medium bodied with good acidity. Outstanding value. Sw=2. $10. 3.5 stars. Find the wine in your area.

This wine is featured in this week's Corkscrew column - Clean Up the Habit: Handling your wine spills.

image-1I walk in the door with sweat still dewing my face, having just transitioned from goosebumpy temps at the office, walking through roasting heat, then into a baking sauna doubling as my dark-blue vehicle. In 95 degrees, the air conditioning has little hope of keeping up and it groans under the stress. I refocus on positive thoughts, the contents of my fridge: ribeye steaks, homemade... | more...
