Tarrawarra Estate J-Block Shiraz, Yarra Valley 2012 $35-$38 Value: good

There’s a smoked-meaty reductive note to start with, plus spicy shiraz aromas and the wine is very slurpable, medium-bodied and easygoing, with soft, powdery tannins. A fine cool-climate shiraz of great drinkability, balance and fine-grained texture. Now to 15 years. 13.7 per cent alcohol. 94/100 – Huon’s Wine 360

Food: pink lamb backstraps

Stockists: Prince Wine Store, Melbourne; Five Way Cellars, Sydney
