Shadowfax 2012 Minnow

Close your eyes and you could easily believe you were drinking some delightfully rustic red from the south-west of France. It's actually made from fruit grown at Werribee, midway between Melbourne and Geelong, and is a blend of carignan, grenache, cinsault and mataro fruit with bright red fruit notes, some delicatessen savouriness, considerable lightness of being and plenty of zingy acid on the finish. It's food friendly, weighs in at just 13% alcohol and is extremely drinkable. Unusual but very attractive in a light/spicy way. I like this a lot. $28.
