Wine Pick of the Week

Ntalie Maclean's wine pick of the week

By Natalie Maclean

Two Hands Wines Gnarly Dudes Shiraz 2011
Barossa Valley, South Australia, Australia

Complex, full-bodied and delicious! Loaded with black fruit flavours yet it’s very dry and balanced, with a lovely long finish. Great dinner party wine. The “gnarly dudes” refer to the old, twisted grapevine trunks that are illustrated on this wine’s label. This is a classic red from the heart of the Barossa Valley. Serve this at a dinner party featuring a hearty meat dish, and listen to the murmurs of appreciation. Superb craftsmanship! More food pairings: black bean soup, lamb cutlets, beef brisket, grilled steaks.
