This week I am road testing a unique blend of red from Southern Eastern Australia. Why I say Unique?
Ahem, the bottle says so... Bahhahahaha! No really, it does, but on the serious note, it is a blend of shiraz, cabernet merlot, verdot and malbec together. We all know shiraz is the stong spicy flavour and cab merlot softens the wine but this is the first time I've had verdot and malbec in a wine. I can't really describe them taste coz for one, I am no connoiseur. However, I really do like this blend.
It certainly is easy drinking, very smooth and soft and yet has that shiraz bite to it at the end. It looks pretty too, as in deep purple ribena blackcurrant purple kind of colour. It smells of raspberries, I didn't get the plum smell as described in the bottle description, maybe it's just my nose. I do love the spicy aroma.
It is a versatile wine best accompanied with chocolates, roast meats and pasta....yummo... I definitely love this Jack's Red!
