What we need is an all purpose red that sings be it rain, hail or shine. The Out of Step Shiraz 2014 from the Yarra Valley is that red. Lovely tart blackberry on the nose mixed with supple slately minerality. The wine opens up in the palate with more slatey minerality, concentrated blackberry and a real sense of Chinese masterstock – seriously.
So this is your wine when you want a red – rain, hail or shine and always $28.
