Yalumba Patchwork Shiraz 2010 (Australia)

Food Pairing
Substantial red-meat dishes

It is not organic, but it claims another ethical virtue. It is "vegan and vegetarian friendly." Translation: No animal-derived clarifying agents, such as milk or egg whites. Rich and boldly fruity, this Barossa Valley red delivers concentrated plum and blackberry flavours supported by vanilla, spice and tangy acidity. Pair it with substantial red-meat dishes. $25.99 in B.C., $24.99 in N.S.
