Top 7 Australian Shiraz Wines

Photo by Emily Clack
I am all about a full-bodied wine. I'm a Shiraz and Cab kind of girl. I get excited about fall because these wines are perfect for the season. Shiraz can also be known as Syrah, Sirac, Marsanne Noir, Entournerein, Serène, Hermitage, Crozes-Hermitage, Cornas, Côte-Rôtie, or St. Joseph. Check out these 7 Shiraz wines from Australia. Cozy up by a fire or try my pairing ideas.
