Bargain of the week
Wyndham Estate 2013 Bin 555 Shiraz $13.29
Soft, rich Shiraz with savoury, chocolate, mocha and earth/forest floor character together with plum and berry. Reasonably light, smooth-textured wine that many wine enthusiasts take for granted as “too commercial” and yet it doesn’t have annoying sweetness, it isn’t smothered with oak and is a very satisfying red to drink. (Screwcap) Score: 89 ★★★½ – view on bobcampbell.nz
Food: Steak tartare, Potato crisps & Quail egg yolk.
