Spanish and Aussie Reds Excellent with Greek Lamb Stew

We had guests and served Greek Lamb Stew from Supercook – a delicious stew with tomatoes, shallots, potatoes, lemon juice and feta cheese.  First, we enjoyed a bottle of Stork’s Tower Tempranillo/Shiraz 2008 from Tesco.  This unlikely-named wine is a Spanish red from Castilla y Leon.  It is smooth, full-bodied with spicy black fruit flavours and was an excellent match with the lamb stew.  The second bottle opened was a Rawnsley Grenache Shiraz Mourvèdre 2010, an Australian Red also from Tesco. Quite a contrast with the previous bottle, but still a good match with the stew.  Softer but still smooth, this wine had plenty of red berry fruits and Tesco describe it has having complex chocolate and coffee characters on the finish.  All in all, the Greek Lamb Stew was a very wine-friendly dish.
