An area in the Wine Shop that doesn't seem to get enough attention but deserves more is Australia. We have some great wines at bargain prices that you should try.
Jim Barry 2014 Lodge Hill Shiraz $18.99
"This juicy, medium-bodied Shiraz is filled with mouthwatering cherry-berry fruit. Some silky tannins provide structure, but this is much more about the here and now than any sort of cellaring. The fruit persists through the finish, joined by hints of herbs and bacon." 90 Pt, Wine Enthusiast
Bleasdale 2014 Langhorn Crossing Red Blend $10.99
"Ripe cherry and blackberry aromas show very good energy and an enlivening jolt of peppery spices. Plush and seamless on the palate, conveying real power to its black and blue fruit, lavender pastille and white pepper flavors. Finishes broad and fleshy, with repeating spiciness, velvety tannins and strong persistence. This wine has the balance to reward patience but is also pretty appealing right now." 90 Pt, Vinous
St. Hallett 2015 Poacher's Blend $10.99
"Crisp Meyer lemon and melon flavors are accented by lime zest and ruby grapefruit notes, a hint of honeysuckle on the sturdy finish. Sémillon, Sauvignon Blanc and Riesling." 87 Pts, Wine Spectator
