De Bortoli Down the Lane Shiraz Tempranillo 2015
Nothing overly complex here - it's quite chilled out just like the label. An easy drinking wine with good fruit and nothing over complicated. Handy value for the asking price, I suspect you'll be able to find this a bit cheaper in retail land.
Think red fruits, charred meat and black pepper spice. Some sweetness lingers although the fruit is a little dilute. A warm rush courtesy of the spice rolls in late and clings on for a long finish.
Made for food, this suits the purpose well.
Drink now to three years.
