Lucky Country 2006 Shiraz (Australia)

Lucky Country wines used to be a label of Two Hands, but they have split off into their own off-shoot.  It certainly isn't the first time a popular wine label has pulled this trick, and it certainly won't be the last.  A famous example is Conundrum, which used to be a label for Caymus, but now if you look at their back label it says it is produced by "Conundrum Winery".  As for the wine, it's still a wonderful fruity and spicy version of Shiraz - with lots of dark fruit and pepperyness; just what you expect from a Shiraz ... and even with some age on it (6 years) it's still drinking beautifully, which means the label has changed but the wine inside is still a quality product.
