Review: De Bortoli – La Boheme Act Four Syrah Gamay (2015)

La Boheme Act Four Syrah Gamay from De Bortoli

The Wine Review:

I was very impressed with the “Act 3” Pinot Gris (and Friends) from De Bortoli and when I saw this Syrah Gamay at the bottleshop I thought it would be worth a go.

An interesting blend and fantastic label design? It is not too hard to pique my interest.

A: Fragrant red fruit, strawberry cherry perfumed and floral and spice
T: Young bright acidity (from the Gamay?), savoury and spicy followed by a sweetness on the mid palate and finishes with dry powdery tannins.

A rollercoaster ride of sweet and savoury. The turbulent girlfirend you had in your youth when you argued more than anything but could not help it.

Emotions, rebellion and hormones.
