Shiraz-mataz: the LCBO’s best five syrahs under $20
The wine most likely to make you forget it’s February
Syrah, a.k.a. shiraz, is my winter wine—a seductive red with fiery pepper notes and warming alcohol. It is often an expensive wine, whether it’s a traditional and elegant version from the northern Rhône in France or a rich shiraz from Australia. But there’s much more range today, and the syrah landscape is broader, better priced and more dynamic than ever before. Here, my picks of the best syrahs under $20.
