De Bortoli Willowglen Shiraz Cabernet 2017

Special Price $15.00 Regular Price $16.00
When you’ve been making wine since 1928 you get very good at it - and De Bortoli are exactly that, with a range that spans the gamut of Australian wines and regionality. Amongst their wines are the Willowglen range - good fruit driven wines that over deliver. This is definitely the case with their 2016 Shiraz Cabernet, made in the typical dry red Australian style - a lovely fruit driven wine full of red fruit, oak and cherry. Medium in body, but not flavour, with fine tannin binding the wine together. The perfect over delivering quaffer. Sorry, this product is not available individually.

Shiraz (which is essentially Syrah) is a dark-skinned grape grown throughout the world and used primarily to produce powerful red wines. Wines made from Syrah are often powerfully flavoured and full-bodied. The variety produces wines with a wide range of flavor notes, depending on the climate and soils where it is grown, as well as other viticultural practices chosen. Aroma characters can range from violets to berries (usually dark as opposed to red), chocolate, espresso and black pepper. No one aroma can be called "typical" though blackberry and pepper are often noticed. With time in the bottle these "primary" notes are moderated and then supplemente ... Read Full Article

Cabernet Sauvignon is unmistakably one of the world's most recognised red wine varieties.

Shiraz (which is essentially Syrah) is a dark-skinned grape grown throughout the world and used primarily to produce powerful red wines.

Wines made from Syrah are often powerfully flavoured and full-bodied. The variety produces wines with a wide range of flavor notes, depending on the climate and soils where it is grown, as well as other viticultural practices chosen. Aroma characters can range from violets to berries (usually dark as opposed to red), chocolate, espresso and black pepper. No one aroma can be called "typical" though blackberry and pepper are often noticed. With time in the bottle these "primary" notes are moderated and then supplemented with earthy or savory "tertiary" notes such as leather and truffle.

"Secondary" flavor and aroma notes are those associated with several things, generally winemakers' practices (such as oak barrel and yeast regimes).

Proud Parents

Cabernet Sauvignon was born in the 17th century in an accidental parenting mix-up and is the spawn of a Cabernet Franc and Sauvignon Blanc entanglement which occurred in south western France. (Which reminds of a joke where a Chihuahua and a Pug walked out a bar one day..) Immediately its popularity amongst winemakers increased as its
