De Bortoli Windy Peak Yarra Valley Cabernet Merlot

There’s an enticing mood to this unashamedly medium-bodied Yarra cabernet, proudly displaying accurate cabernet character of redcurrants, capsicums, tobacco and cedar, lifted by rose petal fragrance. Soft, fine tannins provide immediate appeal and promise short-term potential. The ultimate quaffer with anything made from tomatoes. $12 at Dan’s, Grays, OurCellar and Amatos.
