Shiraz pairs well with many types of food. It is the most versatile wine when looking for a food pairing. Shiraz usually comes from a warm environment and it might be a little lighter, more fruits forward and less acidity on the finish. Shiraz often has flavours of black cherry, black pepper, blackberry, plum, bell pepper, clove, liquorice, espresso and dark chocolate. Therefore, it goes well with grilled meat or vegetables with chilli sauce that complements the taste of the Shiraz.
Below are a few recommendations of Shiraz that go well with Grilled Lamb or Chili Colorado.
