On MENU's Wine list this week: Pierre Wahl's Rijks Reserve Shiraz 2011

We were so impressed with this well-wooded wine. You smell notes of the 40% new oak, warm red berries and lots of spice. It tastes a little of salty liquorice at first. It is soft and silky on the palate with long black cherry and delicate spice flavours. Very, very elegant with a touch of dark toasted wood on the end. An ultimate food wine
