Now this wine was a treat. Brought over for a meal by my brother. This wine wants to be different. For a start it not only brings along the crushed grape juice in the bottle, but also what looks like some ground pepper. You notice the pepper especially towards the end of the bottle – it’s trying to tell you: look I’m different to other wines! It is, it has a soft “tingle on the tongue” feel at the start of the bottle, and when you get towards the end of the bottle it is a definite “tingle on the tongue” as the ground pepper says hello. A treat to be had with red juicy steak, or slow cooked beef cheeks (yum yum).
This wine can be found at your local Dan Murphey’s for $30 (or less when you get it for a bargain on special!)
