De Iuliis Lovedale Road Shiraz Touriga 2019
75/25% shiraz/touriga, the latter imparting firecracker aromas of cinder, mulberry, wakame and pepper grind; the former, a density to the mid palate and a bouncy textural feel. Reductive approach. This has a lighter, inherently natural and fresher feel to it than other reds in the swag. Good drinking.
