For the cellar

De Iuliis Steven Vineyard Shiraz, Hunter Valley 2011 $40

All the De Iuliis shirazes from 2011 are very good, this being the most concentrated and the most elegant. Dusty dry-spice and floral aromas, stylish and smooth on the tongue with powdery tannins, savoury flavours and excellent texture. Very long finish; very fine wine. Drink now to 2031+. 13 per cent alcohol. 94/100 (Huon’s Wine 360)

Food: aged hard cheeses
