Wolf Blass's Eaglehawk Shiraz is not the best from this premium wine maker but at £5 per bottle it serves well. It is a rich velvety red bursting with the deep redness of cherries and an almost Arabian spiciness that would warm through even the coldest of winters. This delight is best served with an equally rich meal such as Roast Beef, Lamb Shanks or Venison. I choose the latter and the wine complimented it superbly.
My only complaint is a slight coarseness on the finish. This is not a usual character with the Wolf Blass range and I wouldn't want it to discourage any new drinkers to the brand, from trying others.
