Indulge Yourself

Tahbilk Eric Stevens Purbrick Shiraz, Nagambie Lakes 2008 $69.50

With the benefit of bottle-age over most current-release reds, this is superbly mellow and drinking beautifully, with its deep brickred colour and complex, mellow, leathery earthy developed-fruit bouquet. There are hints of spices including star anise, too. It’s slightly forward: a great drink and a worthy style. Now to 2033. 14.5 per cent alcohol. 95/100 (Huon’s Wine 360)

Food: aged Comté or Beaufort cheese

Stockists: Five Way Cellars, Cremorne Cellars
