Rocland Estate Duck Duck Goose Shiraz, Barossa Valley 2012 $18

Both the cabernet and shiraz under this snappy label are great buys. Deep colour, clean fresh blackberry and spice aromas with hints of pepper and nutmeg. It’s a medium-bodied wine with soft tannins, moderate length and plenty of charm. The palate is deliciously smooth and balanced. Now to 2024. 14 per cent alcohol. 91/100 (Huon’s Wine 360)

Food: beef and vegetable stir-fry
