Campbells Bobbie Burns Shiraz

Bobbie Burns is Rutherglen’s most famous table wine, and one of the few readily available outside the region. Its forty-first vintage is distinctively regional and as well-priced as ever. There’s a savoury edge of freshly-tilled earth to this spicy, peppery style. An intense core of dense black plum skin and liquorice provides impressive concentration without ever deviating into sweetness or heaviness. Well-balanced acidity and fine-grained, firm tannins promise medium-term potential in the cellar. $20 at Discount Wines.
