Two Canberra region wines pass the bottle test
Back home in Canberra from the Barossa so the Owl decided he should try local. And pleasantly surprised I was too, with a Collector Wines 2014 Marked Tree Red Shiraz and a 2016 Lerida Estate Shiraz. Both passed the bottle test and if I preferred the Collector it was probably because of the good company I shared it with. Tasting wine is like that. The circumstances matter.
Both wines at $26 at Dan Murphy's.
