For the cellar

Penfolds Magill Estate Shiraz, Adelaide 2010 $130

This lush and lovely shiraz is at the elegant end of the Penfolds spectrum. The dark, dense colour is youthful the aromas are of smoky spices, with sandalwood talc high-notes. It’s medium full-bodied and fine-boned: a delicious and balanced red. Still shows oak, so age it a few years. Best 2015 to 2035. 14.5 per cent alcohol. 95/100 (Huon’s Wine 360)

Food: hearty beef casserole
