Reviews and Ratings

Great value under $20 on this full-bodied, smoky and meaty Barossa Valley Shiraz. Look for fleshy, smoky plum, dark berry compote and underbrush flavours on the palate on this, dark, lush and mouth-coating red wine. Pair with all things grilled from the BBQ. MINE: 3 Rings 2016 is a big, juicy and robust Shiraz from the Barossa Valley. Deep ruby in the glass, with full-on dark raspberry and blackberry aromas, finishing spicy and woodsy. Dry and rich with crushed raspberry, blackberry, black pepper spice anise and cedar spice flavours on full and lush on the palate. Could benefit from a couple more years in cellar. Pair with a roast beast. OTHER: Rod Macleod rated this wine as 91/100. OTHER: Linda Mertes WSET 2 rated this wine as 90/100 with the following review: A good-value Shiraz that is full-bodied and extra-dry. So food-friendly! Dried blueberry aromas and firm tannins on the palate. Decant and pair with anything BBQ'd, especially ribs in a thick, sweet/spicy marinade. Check out the clever wine label- front and back! OTHER: Jisun Hahn CAPS Certified Somm rated this wine as 90/100 with the following review: Always reliable and an excellent value Shiraz. Deeply coloured with fleshy ripe plum, Asian spice with hints of star anise, notes of tobacco and cocoa spice. Would love this for any BBQ or a hearty beef stew on a cold winter's night. OTHER: This hi-octane shiraz - almost 15.0% alcohol - wafts from the glass with alluring aromas of dark berry fruit - currant and raspberry - interlaced with mixed spice and grilled savoury herbs. It coats the palate with gusher of flavour - black currant jam, bittersweet dark chocolate and notions of kirsch liqueur. It finishes in a balanced, lengthy and warm finish with persistent palate-replays and hints of gamey bits. You won't go wrong pouring it with oven baked or barbecued back ribs mopped with spicy barbecue sauce. Score - 90 (Vic Harradine, winecurrent.com, Dec. 7, 2019). - Community Wine Reviews
