Top Aussie red

Paracombe Shiraz, Adelaide Hills 2009 $21 

This has a touch of elegance, which is not common among ’09 South Australian shirazes. Deep red-purple colour; menthol, spice and mint aromas, including pepper and clove. Full-bodied, fleshy, rich and smooth with very good balance. Drinking well now, and for 10 years. 14.5 per cent alcohol. 92/100 (Huon’s Wine 360)

Food: grilled lamb chops
