Bargain Of The Week

Le Cirque Whiz Bang Shiraz, Barossa Valley 2012 $16

There’s a firmness in the tannins but the wine has plenty of depth in colour, aromas and flavour, with hints of straw, coffee-grounds and dry-spices. The palate is medium-full bodied, and savoury, with good length and some after-grip. A little cellar time would be beneficial. Best 2015 to 2025. 14.5 per cent alcohol. 87/100 (Huon’s Wine 360)

Food: barbecued sausages

Stockists: Camperdown Cellars; Oatley Cellars; Pyrmont Point Hotel; Sackville Hotel
