Houghton The Bandit Shiraz 2014

This wine walked away with the Stodart Trophy at the Royal QLD Wine Show for the best one year old wine. Medium bodied wines seem to be taking similar awards across the country and it appears the future could well be with this style.

Purple florals, tangy spice but with fruit which is sensual and elegant. But there's a chocolate and cherry goodness driving this beauty all the way home. Puckering tannin sit on the finish which is ridden by the spice. 

A great drink made better by the price tag. Find it for just under $20.

Very good+
