Lamb Shanks are in the oven and I needed some red wine to accompany them (both in and out of the oven) as they cooked, so chose a Starvedog Lane 2005 Shiraz Viognier from Adelaide Hills.
This is a very deep red wine with pepper to the nose. To taste, it is quite tannic, soft and dry with an underlying plum flavour. It is a full-bodied wine with a long tail. It started off tasting a bit acidic but this subsided once aired. It's an okay wine to drink, but not one I would be rushing out to buy again.
As for the lamb shanks, they are smelling great.
