Johnny Q Shiraz Australia

It’s always fun to happen upon a wine that is such a terrific buy you want to pull an Oprah. You get a bottle, you get a bottle and so on and so on. Johnny Q has a richly deserved following because this is so much wine for such a good price. It touches all the right buttons for an everyday tipple. Loaded with fresh fruit along with liquorice and spice in a soft, long finish….what’s not to like? It’s a lovely sipper on its own and a remarkably food friendly with everything from burgers to pizza, charcuterie to beef kabobs. I bet you can’t say no to a second glass.
