Tonight was a steak night, which called for a hearty red wine. With the forthcoming move Down Under, an Aussie number seemed appropriate.
I'm not sure how much it's drunk in Australia itself but the McGuigan Estate Shiraz is on offer at Sainsburys at the moment and has a couple of IWSC trophies to its name. I can see why - it's full-bodied, robust and packed full of flavour.
It pairs well with a juicy steak but easily has enough flavour to hold its own for some quality quaffing in its own right. One more reason to look forward to the move later this year!
