Top Aussie Red

Tar & Roses Shiraz, Heathcote 2012 $20

The colour is deep and dark, the bouquet loaded with blood-plum and smoky, meaty charcuterie aromas. It’s intense and fresh, with clean acidity and a slight bitterness that helps clean the finish. A straightforward, generously flavoured red at a great price. Now to 2027. 14.2 per cent alcohol. 88/100 (Huon’s Wine 360)

Food: beef tagliata with rocket

Stockists: Red Bottle Pyrmont; Best Cellars
