Margaret Valley, Western Australia, Australia
Unlike the rich, powerful Shirazes of South Australia, Western Australia's cooler climate produces wines more reminiscent of the Northern Rhône. Leeuwin's version features aromas of dark red fruit with delicate violets in the background. The palate reveals plump cherries, bright red currants, boysenberries and pepper tightly framed by bright acidity and stuctural tannins on the lingering finish. Pair this Aussie lad with ox cheek stew or lamb shawarma.
