De Bortoli Villages Heathcote Shiraz Grenache 2016

"Hand-picked, each variety separately vinified, matured in used French oak. Excellent colour; a juicy assemblage of black (majority) and red fruits built on a base of firm tannins. Its excellent balance puts it in the middle of now or later timing." 90 Points, James Halliday, The Wine Companion 2016 (on the 2014 vintage).
