An Australian Red Blend is Very Good with Lamb Meatballs in Tomato Sauce

We found an interesting recipe in the Slow Cook Book called Lamb Meatballs in a Tomato Sauce.

The meatballs are made from minced lamb, onions, chilli, garlic, chorizo, paprika and seasoning.  The sauce contains onion, garlic, red wine, tinned tomatoes, smoked paprika, Tabasco sauce and seasoning. We served with spaghetti and sprinkled over some Parmesan.

We paired this dish with a bottle of Dark Corner Durif Shiraz 2014, an Australian red from the Sunday Times Wine Club. 2015-10-16 18.47.09

We detected berry fruits on the nose with sweetness and black fruits on the palate.  There were vanilla and chocolate notes on the finish and we thought the wine was a very good match with the meal.
