Ozzie, I am gonna pick up a bottle of shiraz this week and try it. Haven't really had the bux lately, but I can afford it now, and am looking forward to tasting this miraculous 'nectar of the gods'. Should I drink it over ice? I understand it is a fortified wine or akin to sherry(?).G'day tal,
Glad to hear you're about to partake! Whatever aussie shiraz you pick, you won't need to add ice - no, no, no! Just open the bottle and savor the sweet aroma , let it 'breathe' for a few minutes (hell, that's just torture!) then pour it out. Ahhhh, heaven!
I'm not sure what brands you have available, but if you can get get a Penfolds shiraz, I'm sure you will enjoy it. Or a Rosemount - but make sure it's not a 'blend'.
