Aw, cake! What is not to love about rich, dense, dark, luscious, creamy cake? Especially, if it's in a glass ready to drink. If you haven't experienced Layer Cake Shiraz, we'd like to introduce you to this immensely drinkable and approachable Australian wine. And, when we say approachable, we also mean at a great price.
A little trivia: The owner of Layer Cake Winery also owns Hundred Acre where a Cabernet Sauvignon may go for $300. Winemaker Jayson Woodbridge recently spoke with The Spruce if you want to learn more about how a mid-price wine and a California favorite are making wine lovers happy around the globe.
This gem is 100% Shiraz using grapes from vineyards in McLaren Vale and the Barossa Valley in South Australia – one of the top Shiraz growing areas in the world.

BONUS: Food pairing and recipe
Combine the soy sauce, vinegar, brown sugar, Sriracha and garlic in a large bowl. Add the beef and onion and toss to coat; cover and refrigerate 1 to 4 hours. Preheat a grill to medium high and brush the grates with vegetable oil. Thread the beef, onion and scallions onto eight 10-inch skewers and brush with more oil. Grill the kebabs, turning occasionally, until marked, about 7 minutes for medium rare.
