Queens wine

Not really.
Buckingham Estate
Reserve Shiraz 2006 14%
Western Australia

There is a cool climate for wine in Western Australia. The main area is Margaret river sitting on a peninsular down from Perth.
The result of the cool climate is that this Shiraz is fresh and lean more like a french wine than a typical juicy Australian Shiraz.

Dark purple black in the glass. A nose of lovely perfumed ripe fruit with touch of spicy oak and licuorice. On the palatte fresh fruit, medium bodied with a light fresh texture.
Morrisons £6.00
