The Little Penguin "Shiraz" South Eastern 2010
Hold this hefty red to the light and marvel at the dense, bright magenta hues. Savor the splashes of chocolate, spice and juicy strawberries on the nose. The flavor has equally impressive dark sweet fruit, closing with an impressive length. This Australian Shiraz hold its own with hard cheeses and anything on the barbie, from red meats to blackened fish.
The little penguin wines are appropriate for any occasion. From a party with the whole colony to a quiet night in the burrow, the little penguin enjoys nothing more than socializing and foraging for delicacies.
Smells like spiced blackberries and plum with a bit of floral. Has a heavy texture in the mouth and a long finish that is juicy at first with a dry finale. Definitely a dark berry taste with a bit of spice. Very drinkable and a good price.

Nose shows light meaty, smoky aromas, and the palate offers up a soft-and-easy feel and plenty of mixed berry fruit. A safe, straightforward, please-almost-everyone Shiraz.
Smooth and juicy, with pretty blueberry and plum flavors that sail through the fine-grained, deftly balanced finish. Drink now.
Round, with a root beer note to the raspberry and cherry jam, finishing with polished texture. Drink now.
Fresh, open-textured and spicy, with hints of cinnamon and white pepper around a core of red berry flavors. Drink now.
