December Drinking Tip #4: ENJOYING the BEST TEN DOLLAR SHIRAZ in the WORLD

ConoSurShirazAnd better than a lot of the stuff at twenty and thirty dollars. How can this be you ask? Well, all I know is that there is something magical in Chilean vineyards and when coupled with brilliant winemaking the results can make a mockery of the established wine world. The Cono Sur winery is modern, hip, happening, cutting edge so the wines have an extra shot of razzle-dazzle.

I’ve loved the Shiraz when it came out last year and now with some bottle age it’s developed an earthy, woodsy character to partner the spicy/peppery flavours. Feels grounded and nourishing. Richness meets gusto. I could see Ralph Lauren drinking this at his winter cottage. Tell him I sent you.

Enjoy Cono Sur Shiraz with any hearty, winter meal.
