Top Aussie red

Brand’s Laira August Tide Dry Red, Coonawarra 2010 $27

Described only as a Bordeaux blend, this is a tasty, more-ish Coonawarra with a core of dark-berry flavours. The colour is deep red-purple and it’s bold, bright and rich, with ample fruit but also some savoury, mellow qualities that augur well for drinking young. Now to 10 years. 14.8 per cent alcohol. 89/100 (Huon’s Wine 360)

Food: beef bourguignon
