De Iuliis 2019 LDR Vineyard Shiraz Touriga
The De Iuliis family are a reliable source of excellent Hunter Valley wines at sensible prices. This is an unusual blend of a regular Hunter favourite, shiraz, with 20% of the Portuguese grape variety touriga nacional, which is often used in fortified wines. It is a match made in heaven, producing a wine with presence and structure. Medium-bodied, elegant, and stylish. This can be enjoyed in its youth or cellared in the short to medium term.
