Driftwood The Collection Shiraz Cabernet Sauvignon 2016

This is the entry level for Driftwood Estate. If you can find for under RRP, doing good.

Driftwood, The Collection, Shiraz, Cabernet Sauvignon, Margaret River, 2016

Easter egg chocolate sweet nose underwritten with savoury pink salt and pink pepper corns, bay leaf, black currant pastille and violets. Sandy tannin structure. Sweet fruit of rose water/Turkish Delight comes first with licks of pepper and spice before varietal red/black fruit. On the swarthy side of drinking…for those that want to appear slightly edgy, yet remain on a budget.

RRP: $22
Alc: 14.5%
Rating: 16.75/20
