De Iuliis Hunter Valley Shiraz

The rise and rise of De Iuliis shiraz has been a captivating spectacle in recent vintages. No surprise that it swoops in with one of the best $20 (street price) newcomers in 2011. This is the young and friendly member of the family; refreshing and relaxed, with vibrant cherry/berry fruits and tangy acidity. Soft, supple tannins make it just the thing to tuck into right away. $20 at WineStar and Chambers Cellars.
