Talk about food-friendly! This medium-bodied wine might have been designed to accompany Mediterranean nibbles like a charcuterie plate or marinated olives. Andrew Wood, a winemaker without a vineyard, sources fruit from the McLaren Vale region with preference for making wines that offer something just a little bit different. This is a blend of montepulciano, sangiovese, cabernet and shiraz that offers immediate drinkability; an Australian wine with an Italian accent with bright fruit, savoury tannin structure, spice elements and a soft finish. Lovely stuff and immediately accessible. $25. www.waywoodwines.com.
