This Month's Feature - the Little Penguin Shiraz

Shiraz, a robust red wine, is often recognized by its distinctive flavors of spice and pepper. Australia, the home of the Little Penguin, has officially joined the ranks of the best producers of Shiraz in the world, despite the wine's French heritage. Try the Little Penguin Shiraz and you will enjoy scents of chocolate, spice and juicy strawberries while your mouth is treated to sweet fruit, closing with a smooth finish. Learn more about wines.
