M's Wine Review - Leasingham Bin 61 Shiraz 2008

This particular wine is made from grapes sourced from the Clare Valley which is a little further north of the famous Barossa Valley in South Australia. The Clare Valley is famous for its shiraz, cabernet and riesling. However, the 2008 year and vintage was a challenging one due to the lack of regular rain and an unseasonal heat wave in March.
Regardless of these challenges this shiraz is very well made; surprisingly smooth, full of fruit and extremely easy drinking. I can’t say it's huge but it has enough length to leave a pleasant long lasting taste in your mouth.
I've had this wine a few times now and consistently it has exceeded my expectations of a solid South Australian shiraz and, to be perfectly honest, it's a safe and easy option for any dinner party!
RRP $18-$24
