Cooter & Cooter Shiraz 2018 (McLaren Vale). This is one of the best Shiraz under $20 I have tasted in a long long time.
Australian Shiraz is going through a resurgence, as the winemakers move away from the over extracted and over the top styles of huge oak, huge fruit and huge alcohol.
The modern style is now all about elegance, however you still want the fruit and the flavour.
This wine offers all that and more and for under $20, is a steal. If you love your Shiraz, this is a wine you need to stock up on.
The colour is dark and brooding, with rich chocolate aromas and dark fruits. The palate is smooth, elegant rich and inviting.
This is a sensational bottle of wine and a great example of the modern Australian Style, perfect for grilled lamb on Australia Day. McLaren Vale shiraz at its best.
If you love Pinot Noir, we also have a great Adelaide Hills example from the same producer. Put together a great mixed dozen of the two.
Cooter & Cooter is a family business and a husband and wife team with over 20 vintages between them. They have previously worked for a number of high profile wineries and Cooter & Cooter is their labour of love. They only produce three wines, and they all represent extreme value and quality.
