Wine Pick of the Week

Ntalie Maclean's wine pick of the week

By Natalie MacLean

Wakefield Wines Syrah Shiraz
Clare Valley, South Australia, Australia

Blackberry liqueur richness with a hint of mint. Full-bodied and ultra-smooth with excellent replays of dark fruit flavours across the palate. This is an incredible wine for the price. The grapes for this wine come from vines that were planted in 1969, and that concentration shows in the wine. Some spice and vanilla oak on a long finish. Pair with: lamb cutlets, sharp cheddar, Mexican dishes, pork spareribs, grilled tuna.
