WINE OF THE WEEK: 2004 Watershed Premium Shiraz

ONE FOR LUNCH: WATERSHED Wines in WA’s Margaret River region is just six years young, but is already making its mark with exceptional Shiraz that has some asking if this variety from the maritime-climate region (warm days, cool nights) could ultimately be hailed amongst Australia’s best.

The 2004 Watershed Premium Shiraz has sweet cherry and white chocolate flavours, and spicy and vanilla characters from maturation in French and American oak. Soft tannins round out the enjoyment of this wine that at $24 is a good-value match with a winter-time osso bucco.
