Top Drop -February 2012

Top Drop Logo, wine review

I have chosen the Shiraz Sangiovese blend from Cassegrain Wines to review this month for focus magazine and Gourmet Getaways readers because it has been my preferred red lately. I am off on holidays at the moment, so it is strictly cocktails by the pool for me.  This is a brief intermission from my Pacific island cruise whilst I share an easy drinking  bottle of red with readers.

Addition Noir Shiraz Sangiovese 2009

 My choice of red wine for summer is always a Pinot or a Sangiovese  These reds are light and refreshing, very easy to drink and perfect  for consuming at this time of year. The combination of Shiraz and Sangiovese in this wine gives a gorgeous ruby red colour and fresh fruit flavours of cherry and spice. It is ideally balanced and an easy drinking wine for a casual night in. Grab a pizza and share a bottle with friends.

Goes with: Pizza, Antipasto or cheese Platter

Cost $25.00
