Beresford BelltowerBeresford Bell Tower McLaren Vale Shiraz 2013 $20 ★★★½

Who doesn’t love a big, rich, Australian shiraz that radiates ripe, dark, dusty berries, sweet plum and chocolate?  This is one of those wines that I warmed to straight away because the price is right and it held it’s flavours for a decent length of time in the mouth – not like many of the cheaper examples that fall away within seconds.  It also oozes fruit cake spices, chocolate and a layer of liquorice.  Yummy.
