Rutherglen, North East Victoria, Australia. 13.3%
Cinsault, a variety still widely used in regional French blends. I think this is the first time I’ve ever seen it in Australia.
Quite fresh fruit on the front palate, remarkable given its 8 years. Quite a lot of harsh limey tartaric acid, needless to say the wine is starting to through an acid crust.
I won’t buy this again but it wasn’t a bad wine with food. Simple, unpretentious, and refreshingly relatively light in alcohol by modern standards.
