De Bortoli Willowbank Shiraz Cabernet 2010, South Eastern Australia, NSW

2013-05-12 15.51.25

This is a curious one I picked up from GetWinesDirect for $8, but I can’t find it on the De Bortoli website, and it’s not one of their listed export labels either. Med+ – intense crimson-ruby colour. Savoury notes of oak , salted plum and the sponge from blackforest cake. Dry, med+ bodied wine with fruity acidity, 13% alc. Soft tannins serve to prop up the finish. Flavours of plum and berry fruit. Simple but lingering finish. Drink now – 2015. 88/100. This is excellent with Tandoori chicken.
