Stormhoek Shiraz disappoints

I didn’t mean this blog to become a wine review site, but following my Pinot Grigio taste test earlier this week, I spotted a bottle of Stormhoek Shiraz in Sainsbury’s last night, and – once again, calling it work-related – I decided to give it a try, on behalf of the blogosphere.
The initial smell when I unscrewed the cap was most promising: certainly the best wine I’ve sniffed this year (so far). I was expecting a really weighty red, just how I like it. Sadly, it didn’t follow through. Not a bad wine; in fact, perfectly respectable – but not exceptional. After the very impressive Pinot Grigio, it was a bit of a let-down.
