De Bortoli Down The Lane Shiraz Tempranillo 2015

Spanish inspired label, Pamplona meets Verona.

Rubbery, bit of reduction, meaty - funk and fugue. Similar vein on the palate: juice and funk, gummy, resiny, fermenting meats. 

Primary and raw, cherries - calls for charcuterie, even olives. Joyous, share food and indeed the fruits of this labour. Not the most complex wine. Flows easily. At the $ you'd not be unhappy either. 88 

Tasted on: Friday 7th July, a Leaf to Fruit day
Source: Sample
Price: $12
Alcohol: 14.5%
