De Bortoli Woodfired Cabernet Sauvignon 2018

Sourced from De Bortoli’s own vineyard at Corop in Northern Heathcote, adding to a range that already includes Heathcote Shiraz and Heathcote Sparkling Shiraz. As a style it was intended to complement wood-fired and charcoal based cooking.

Jam packed with black fruit, it's a pretty robust red with a warming length across it.

Lick of tannin bolsters the middle, but it's rather a simple and straightforward affair. It calls for some solid grilled protein to lap it up, snags and some lamb kofta did the trick for us. 88
