Yesterday I posted about my uneventful, anti-climatic trip to Trader Joe’s. But one of the best buys was my $2.99 bottle of Shiraz.
Are y’all familiar with Shiraz? It’s from Australia and is a popular red in the region. The flavor is bold fruity – blackcurrant, cherry, blackberry, plum, and raisin. Good paired with red meat dishes. And of course it has the antioxidant characteristics of red wines. If you’d like to sip a Shiraz and have a Trader Joe’s in your area, then try the $2.99 bottle – no big investment if you don’t like your bottle of Shiraz.
No matter what bottle you snag, you need a cute bottle chiller to keep your red at the right temp. Not cold but chill. This bottle chiller is nice for table side, just the right height. Both versions are nice but I favor the Less version with the round handles, just a better design than the molded handles on the More version.
Have you tried Shiraz or do you have a favorite wine? Which bottle chiller do you like?
