1998 Ghost Gum Shiraz

South Eastern Australia


Although Ghost Gum is a variety of eucalyptus tree in the Australian outback, you're more likely to catch a waft of pine lingering behind sweet raspberry and smoke in the bouquet of this Shiraz. Not huge but assertive, it taps a happy dance of pepper and spice on its easy way down, begging to play with bold blue cheeses, grilled salmon or barbecue sauce. At $8.99 a bottle, one glass costs less than your morning latte.
