No lack here. The Lackey 2017 is a big, bold Shiraz, opulent with dark chocolate, ripe blackberry, dark cherry, menthol and cracked pepper flavours finishing with oak spice. Pair with a roast leg of lamb.

Shiraz food pairings: spiced beef dishes, spicy ribs, lamb cutlets with piperade and goat cheese, hamburgers, black bean soup.

Reviews and Ratings

Trent Mayers rated this wine as 92/100 with the following review:

Shiraz is the Australian name for the grape much of the world calls Syrah. This is a full bodied, developing, well balanced wine aged in a mix of old and new oak. Intense flavours of blackberry, black plum and cherry, meatiness, cedar, leather, earth, and black pepper. It delivers a lot for under $20. If you like BBQ ribs and sauce, pick this wine to pair. it's already showing signs of development; so, drink now to 2022. 4+ stars out of 5.

The Lackey 2017 is a big, bold Shiraz, well-priced under $20. Look for ripe opulent dark chocolate, ripe blackberry, dark cherry, menthol and cracked pepper wrapped up in toasty oak spice. Pair with a rich leg of lamb roast. - Community Wine Reviews
