De Bortoli (an extremely good producer) have a massive portfolio of wines. Why they need the SKU provided by the La Bossa wines is beyond me. To be fair, I don’t have a very good business mind. What’s more disconcerting is that this Shiraz Cabernet Merlot medalled in the 2012 National Capital Wine Show.
Confection and mulch on the nose. Thin and mawkish on the palate with hard, green tannin. Awful sour/sweet interplay. I was uncomfortable being in the same room as it. 75
