Top Aussie Red

Hugh Hamilton The Rascal Shiraz, McLaren Vale 2012 $29.50

Here’s a big hearty winter red for those who want something gutsy with their roast. Very ripe, full-bodied, oaky as well as spicy, with earthy regional notes and a powerful, firmly tannic, solidly structured palate. It should age well too. Now to 15 years. 15 per cent alcohol. 91/100 – Huon’s Wine 360

Food: rare rump steak

Stockist: Lock Stock & Bottle, Abbotsford
