De Bortoli Sacred Hill Syrah Dolcetto
If you are looking for a red that is smooth, soft and inviting, you have arrived at your destination. This shiraz dolcetto blend from De Bortoli is a medium-bodied, sweetly-fruited number that is full of ripe berries and fruit crumble smells, along with touches of soft spice. The palate is juicy fruity with a kiss of sweetness, ultra-soft tannins, and a bright, mellow finish. It's only 8.5% alcohol, and is perfect for chilling down on a warm day.
Appearance: Bright rich magenta in colour.
Nose: Fresh cherry and rich fruits of the forest with a hint of spice.
Palate: Lashings of ripe summer berries with natural grape sweetness balanced by soft tannins to finish.
Food: Thai red beef curry, antipasto plate or Italian favourites such as pizza and pasta. Served slightly chilled.
Cellaring: Best enjoyed chilled whilst young and exhibiting the fresh summer berry fruits.
