The Board is running an Aussie promotion but I want to tell you about a wine that’s not on the feature tables. This is probably a good time to admit that I drink less Aussie Shiraz than everyone else in Canada. Too sweet, too dense and just too obvious. But I’ve just tasted one that going on my summer shopping list.
What I like about Deakin Shiraz is the brightness and the refreshment. There’s a little Beaujolais spirit giving it a fun, lighthearted feeling. An invitation to gulp. Could be the hit red of the BBQ season.
