WINE OF THE WEEK: Starve Dog Lane’s McLaren Vale ‘crossbred’ Ibrido

ONE FOR LUNCH: Another interesting blend is Starve Dog Lane’s new McLaren Vale ‘crossbred’ Ibrido, five European-origin wines brought together into a drop that’s beautifully mouth-filling with sour cherry, dark chocolate and roasted coffee bean flavours, biscuity tannins and good acid.

The Mediterranean-like climate of McLaren Vale is ideally suited to the varieties in this wine: tempranillo that originally hailed from Spain, nebbiolo, sangiovese and barbera from Italy, and shiraz from France.

Good buying at $24.99 to match with grilled lamb loin chops, baby lentils and roasted capsicums.
