2012 De Bortoli Family Selection Shiraz
This wine is a real value buy. Medium-bodied, soft, smooth, fruity with hints of oak and chocolatey flavors, this Family Selection Shiraz 2012 from the De Bortoli family in Australia is a dry, inexpensive, and very quaffable wine bound to keep the masses happy - great for larger gatherings.
Has good acidity and will go well with hearty, savory flavors, i.e. meats, cheese, pastas. We will be pairing this with some grilled salmon and oven roasted vegetable.
Verdict: A charming wine that's unobtrusive, approachable and very pleasant.
