De Bortoli Accomplice is a range of easy drinking wine varietals and blends produced by De Bortoli Wines. Located in Riverina to the south-west of New South Wales, the De Bortoli winery is a third-generation family-owned and operated wine company founded by Vittorio and Giuseppina De Bortoli in 1928.
The Shiraz grapes used to craft this youthful wine were harvested in early January, which proved to be a slightly dry season. This 2016 De Bortoli Accomplice Shiraz features a dark crimson colour with ruby highlights throughout the wine and an alcohol content of 13%. The attractive nose offers fragrances of cherry and raspberry with subtle hints of spice and musk lurking in the background. The sweet and intense palate packs juicy flavours of berry fruit combined with vanilla and nutty oak and balanced by subtle spicy notes. This medium bodied Shiraz can be cellared for a brief term of 24 months to discover its full flavour potential. It tastes marvellous with pasta, braised pork belly and beef fajitas with salsa.
