Advantages Fantastic flavour, moderate price.
Disadvantages None if consumed in moderation.
I like a nice glass of shiraz in the evenings, but finding one that I both like and can afford is not always easy. However, LINDEMANS Bin 50 Shiraz fits the bill perfectly (and it's fantastic with dark chocolate).The grape:
Bin 50 Shiraz 2007 is a full bodied, well balanced wine with plum and spice flavours. It is a medium wine - not overly sweet but certainly not a dry wine. This wine is a multi-region blend, but don't let that put you off, the fruit may be sourced from a range of wine growing regions but the blend is perfect. The wine is matured with American oak which makes it smell slightly like treacle.
Colour: Plum with crimson highlights.Nose: Dark fruity aromas - mulberry, plum, spice, vanilla, dark chocolate.
Palate: A medium to full bodied wine tasting intensely of plum, dark chocolate, spices and vanilla.Wine Analysis:
Food Matches: pasta, red meat dishes, dark chocolate or cheese.Regional Source:
those who drink red wine in moderation have a decreased risk of heart disease. This is believed to be due to the polyphenols, including tannins in red grapes which seem to provide an antioxidant and antiviral action. This wine contains sulphites.
* Dieters beware - with 7 calories per gram, the number of calories in alcohol is second only to fat (9 cals/g). The calories in alcohol are metabolized first by the body, ahead of burning fat - which is not desirable if on a weight loss diet.In my experience, LINDEMANS produce complex, high quality wines at everyday prices (in this case around £7) and this Shiraz is one of their best. Don't buy 2005 as this seems to have been a bad year for all shiraz, but other than that it's well worth trying - look out for special offers in most of the large supermarkets.

Dr. Linderman said, 'the one purpose of wine is to bring happiness ...' and it certainly seems to work for me.
Please don't forget to recycle your bottle.
