Shiraz is widely perceived as Australia’s premier grape variety. An intense black grape, it produces a variety of red wine styles, from medium red in the Hunter Valley, through to rich black red in the Barossa Valley and McLaren Vale - all available to buy online here at Wine Selectors, from the winery to your door. When buying a good Shiraz wine, look for those that are deep and dark in colour, full of chocolate, licorice and fruit with spice and pepper characteristics and firm, fine tannins. Shiraz is best enjoyed alongside rich spicy meat dishes like pepper steak, veal schnitzel or roast kangaroo. Check out Cabernet Sauvignon or Pinot Noir for an alternative red wine variety.
