Wine: Foggo The Wild Thing
Reason for purchase: Part of the birthday party wine selection.
Review: Well another Foggo gem won its way onto my party wine list, and this one could well become a staple. It is a typical Foggo Shiraz, well aged and well rounded.
There is typical McLaren Vale pepper, with great fruit flavour that has mellowed nicely with the benefits of 5 years on oak. I'm told this one can last the distance in the bottle, so I might need to keep a couple for the long haul and see how it goes.
Definitely up there with wines like the Oomoo as the perfect every day red. Grab a case when you're next at the 'vale.
