Product Description

De Bortoli La Boheme ‘Missing Act’ Cab Sauv 2015: (Adelaide Wine Show Class 24, Top Gold 18.7) La Bohème is the name of Giacomo Puccini’s four-part opera and it is rumoured that there was one act that the Italian composer decided not to use. The “Missing Act” was described as a late night party and gave De Bortoli winemakers Sarah Fagan and Andy Bretherton the inspiration to try something fun with their new release. This Yarra Valley wine consists of 87 per cent cabernet and 13 per cent Sangiovese – a blend the winery called a “traditional variety turned on its head and an interesting injection of a non traditional variety in Sangiovese”.

A medium bodied style which is perfect for tapas style food and drinking very nicely now or over the next 3-4 years.
