An Aussie Shiraz/Cabernet is a Slow Burner with Jerk Chicken

We finished off the Jerk Chicken from Monday evening (see 9th April) and decided to risk a red wine with this dish.  We opened a bottle of Coogee Bay Shiraz/Cabernet Sauvignon 2010 from Waitrose.

This is a full-bodied Australian red and we tasted red fruits, vanilla and spicy plums.  As with the Chilean Sauvignon paired previously with this meal, this too was something of a slow burner.  By the time we were on the final glass, we both agreed the wine combined reasonably well with the Chicken.
