If you’re after something altogether different, this Extra Special Barossa Shiraz could be up your street.

The wine is big and bold with dark cherry and plummy notes, spices and a hint of mocha.

Not the cheapest but as one of Asda’s Extra Special wines it is exactly that for the price.

It’s what the Aussies do best – supermarket wines, big flavours at less than a tenner.

Long may it continue.
