A Big Australian Red Complements a Home-Made Beef Stew

Teresa made a home-made minced beef stew, with root vegetables, beef stock, herbs, tomatoes, a little red wine, garlic and Worcester sauce.  We opened a bottle of Holroyd Farm Shiraz/Petit Verdot 2007 from the Sunday Times Wine Club.  This worked quite well.  This is a big Australian red, with blackberry fruit, damson, plum and hints of smoky liquorice.  However, this smooth, rich fruity example did not overwhelm the food.
