This is another crowd-pleasing Aussie Shiraz. However, is bolder than expected -- the first sip took me back that it was almost too strong that it lacked any subtlety, almost like a soda. But if you let it decant for just a little while, the Shiraz mellows enough to be quite pleasing. It stands on its own quite well, but will overpower lighter foods. Recommended with strawberries or similarly bold sauces.
External Reviews for Two Jokers Shiraz
Rich and plummy with delicious blackberry fruit. The body is extremely dense and spicy with characteristic black fruit and berry and a touch of smoky earth. A perfect example of a flawless Australian Shiraz, at a price that is smart for everyday drinking.
Unscrew the cap and find aromas of roasted coffee beans and heated dark chocolate. On first taste, a little spice and tannin mingle with blackberries, raspberries and blueberries in a fine balance. As the wine breathes the fruit strengthens, but never overpowers the spice. I never tire of Shiraz like this. It drinks easily, but oh, what a joy to find great character also.
