Each year the first week in May sees one of the most anticipated events in Australian wine: the release of Penfolds Icon and Luxury wines. Brad looks at one of the very best wines from this year’s release in the St. Henri Shiraz.
Danny looks at a couple of wines for those of us with a little less spending money however. His first wine is a Chardonnay from Shadowfax drawn from multiple cool climate sites throughout Victoria. The other is a bargain priced Shiraz Viognier blend from Punt Road’s second label, Airlie Bank.
This week’s recommendations are:
- Shadowfax Chardonnay 2008 ($27-$30)
- Penfolds St. Henri Shiraz 2006 ($75-$90)
- Punt Road Airlie Bank Shiraz Viognier 2008 ($15-$18)
Cheers… and happy wine buying!
