A question about a recipe: New Mother's Magic Elixir (Lamb Stew)

Bc41160c f639 468e bb4e 22ca67453f93  img 1499

I have a question about the recipe "New Mother's Magic Elixir (Lamb Stew)" from MrsWheelbarrow. /What kind of wine variety is Cahors? I'm in Australia and I haven't come across it, wondering whether a decent Shiraz or Cabernet Sauvignon would work? Something else?

Cahors is a chewy, rough red – very peasant-y. A Shiraz sounds like a great alternative.

Cahors is its own variety, a rustic red from Languedoc-Roussillon in France. You'll get a different-but-delicious result with Shiraz.

That's also really useful to know, finding it should be much easier knowing this. Much appreciation!
