The Black Chook 2014 Shiraz

There is a huge market out there for big, bold and macho reds; full of vinous testosterone like teenagers on a big night out looking for action. This is a blend of shiraz from McLaren Vale and Langhorne Creek, two regions of South Australia where they can always get their fruit ripe, and it is a red that demands attention. It is cocky, sweet and juicy on the palate, chock-a-block with dark, inky fruit and full-blooded. Not a wine for wimps, but if you love the style you'll enjoy this. And the price is right. $18.
