De Bortoli Deen Master's Blend Vat 184 2015

A blend of Shiraz, Durif, Petit Verdot - realised to coincide with Father's Day, and timed so to honour De Bortoli patriarch, Deen De Bortoli. 

Ripe and sturdy aroma here, a generous tribute to its namesake. A mix of black fruit aromatics, subtle licorice notes.

Themes familiar and flowing through the palate. Fine tannin, definite line of black fruit, again that licorice, with subtle fennel notes. Well blended wine, perfectly approachable. Just like he which it honours? 90
