Grenache, shiraz and mourvèdre, the classic Rhône-inspired grape trio that found a compelling new home in Australia, gets a juicy, upbeat interpretation here. It's a happy wine, on the leaner side of medium-full-bodied, with black berry and blueberry fruit, integrated tannins and a twist of cracked pepper. Matches: well-done steak, grilled pork chops, lamb burgers; $14.99 in B.C., $12.99 in Manitoba, $17.05 in Quebec, $18.49 in New Brunswick, $17.48 in Newfoundland.
