New winery/importer for me – Down Under Cellars – offers an inexpensive Shiraz from South Eastern Australia.

Vineyard:  Down Under Cellars
Varietal:  Shiraz
Vintage:  2008
Appellation:  South Eastern Australia
Price:  $5.99

Notes:  Pretty straightforward and simple.  Strawberry fruit on the palate with tea (yes, as in “I’ll have a spot of ….”) in the background that lingers into the finish.  I like it for the price.  For me, it drank more like a Pinot Noir than a Shiraz.

Important:  I am not a professional sommelier or wine connoisseur.  See “About” for the full disclaimer.
