A Gentle Aussie Shiraz Very Pleasant with a Moussaka

We were in a bit of a rush and didn’t have time to cook anything from scratch, so we reached for Tesco’s Finest Lamb Moussaka.  Whilst this is not as good as home-made, it is reasonably tasty.  As indicated in previous posts, we have found Moussaka wine pairing at times tricky.  We opened a bottle of Blaxland Estate Shiraz 2009, a medium-bodied Australian red from Tesco.  This Shiraz is not as big and bold as many from Australia and we enjoyed a restrained blackberry spiciness. We thought it paired very pleasantly with the food.
