Wine Tasting Note: Sainsbury's SO Organic Shiraz, VdP d'Oc, France.

Soorganic Now we all realise that just because it is organic it is not going to have any great impact on the taste. It is the feel-good factor that matters in selecting an organic wine - the efforts of the producer to protect the environment and maintain the areas biodiversity. Organically produced wines often command a premium so to see one at under a fiver is unusual.

Wine Tasting Note: Sainsbury's SO Organic Shiraz, 2004, Vin de Pays d'Oc, France. (£4.99)
This has a nice perfume aroma - a touch of violets wrapped up in the blackberry and spice notes. The palate is chunky, a full-bodied wine. A touch of sweet fruit-richness upfront with a fine layer of tannins revealing themselves on the finish. Finish is a bit abrupt but what do you expect for under a five quid? For £4.99 (I think I brought this on offer with a £1 off) it is worth the money and a fine drink to accompany something beefy. Alcohol 12.5%.
