#NWTW Week 35: What I’m Eating With My Aussie Shiraz

Australia, For The Foodies, New Wine This Week, Reds

week 35 oxtail stew

Pretty easy one this. This wine is big, it’s bold, and it packs a big old punch of seasoning in the palate. Sounds like a load of waffle? Well I just mean it’s likely to be pretty peppery on the taste and it’ll be high alcohol and fat bodied in the mouth.

I’ve just got a delivery of another meat box, and in there I’ve managed to sneak a few pieces of oxtail. So a thick oxtail stew is coming up. Thick, heavy, and full of flavor to match the wine stride for stride.

Got to make sure I season it well for two reasons. The pepper will match the pepper aftertaste in the wine, and the salt (which is a wine’s best mate!) will drag out as much acidity and flavor out of the wine to keep it plenty drinkable.

As a bit of a nod to the eucalyptus flavours that I’m hoping to get hold of, I might add a bit of mint in there too. Only a bit mind.

Cheers
