De Bortoli Sacred Hill Shiraz 2012


De Bortoli's Sacred Hill Shiraz 2012 retails for the princely sum of $7.50, and no region is identified on the bottle other than Australia.  It has mostly primary fruit driven aromatics of spiced plums, supplemented by a touch of pepper.  The palate is dry, simple and pleasant enough, with plum flavours predominant.  Balance is achieved, without the sharp edges you generally see at this price point.  Acceptable
