29 dollars: Michael Hall "Sang de Pigeon" Shiraz 2014
I've known Michael and his wines for a decade and they are always at the acme of polished, ripe and terroir-driven winemaking. Michael's wines are unashamed deliverers of pleasure and the Sang de Pigeon Barossa Shiraz nails the pleasure principle to the wall! "Barossa Shiraz" is a cliché and one that this wine neatly avoids being rich and concentrated but without excess or any loss of finesse. It is a truly fine wine to be drunk copiously in conjunction with hearty food. Highly recommended.
