ONE TO NOTE: WOLF Blass Grey Label wines have a well-earned reputation for being rich and powerful, yet with a wonderful approachability from their time in bottle before release.
A 2014 Grey Label McLaren Vale Shiraz that's now available is just one such of these wines, good winter rains having set up the vines for a dry spring that was followed by a hot January, much needed rains in February, and then cooling temperatures that slowed ripening for a great accumulation of flavours and tannin.
At $45 this one makes for a really rewarding pairing with slow-roasted lamb shanks under a star-anise and plum marinade.
