Indulge Yourself

Innocent Bystander Mea Culpa Shiraz, Yarra Valley 2011 $60

An expensive but superb experimental shiraz, with 100 per cent stalk inclusion in the ferment, but it doesn’t show. Fresh red fruit, pepper and spice aromas with a lick of mint. It’s medium weight at most with a taut, bright, fruit-driven palate of great style and charm. Top quality shiraz, high on drinkability. Now to 2026. 13.5 per cent alcohol. 93/100 (Huon’s Wine 360)

Food: duck confit
