This week all three wines come from South Australia. We look at yet another inexpensive riesling from the Clare Valley that is great value and a big, powerful shiraz from McLaren Vale. We also look at a red blend from a Clare Valley producer adored by wine critics and drinkers alike.

Good deep rich ruby colour flows into the glass. There is a earthy early morning woods note on the nose that is rather jolly and welcoming. On the palate [...]
