It’s a Netflix night
Chateau Tanunda Barossa Shiraz
We are in Christmas countdown mode and I know I’m not alone when I say that I’m exhausted and a bit overwhelmed with my “to do” list. That’s why this evening I chose a nice full bodied Shiraz. I want to take the edge off and unwind. It’s always this time of year just days before the holiday I find myself saying “forget what you have to get done and just relax and enjoy”. So that’s what I’m doing.
Tonight we started a new Netflix series and I could be in for at least 3 episodes so this Shiraz will be by my side.
This wine is not the fruit bomb some Australian Shiraz can be. It is more upfront earth and spice with fruit being a secondary characteristic. There is some oak and it has balanced tannins. This Shiraz was nice for just sipping away watching a movie. It’s not complicated and doesn’t need your full attention. Just grab a glass and enjoy.
