Vibrant purple, deep crimson. Sweet fragrant aromas of blackberries with underlying mint and hints of milk chocolate oak. A generous wine that shows sweet and vibrant fruit on the fleshy palate with soft mouth – coating tannins.

Nothing more to add really except I really think the label looks frightful…. but folks liked the contents when we blind tasted it in August 2011, with predominantly US drinkers.

Note: We now understand that the De Bortoli Sacred Hill Range IS the Family Selection in a different packaging. So, for example,  the DB Sacred Hill Chardonnay and DB Family Selection Chardonnay are the same wine. The two are inter-changeable: One intended for the retail market one for the on-trade.
