Indulge yourself

La Croix de l’Ermite Crozes-Hermitage Les Chassis, Rhone Valley 2009 $35

A deliciously complex, elegant Rhone syrah at an affordable price. Savoury, foresty, spice and earth aromas with background blackberry; the palate is lighter and more refreshing than many high-octane Aussies. Good intensity and density, but it also leaves you refreshed, not overburdened. Now to 2021. 12.5 per cent alcohol. 92/100 (Huon’s Wine 360)

Food: barbecued Moroccan spiced lamb
