Weekly Wine Tasting: Casillero del Diablo Shiraz
As far as an enjoyable wine
tasting experience goes, the Casillero del Diablo Shiraz is as good as it gets for a £8 Chilean Shiraz.
The wine has a remarkably full body for its price with tastes of
tanin, rich plums, deep chocolate
and a stunningly smooth texture.
Little bit of extra knowledge for you - the devil head on the bottle signifies the legend that there was a devil living in the cellar of Don Melchor to keep away thieves! Who knew?
Especially good for drinking with roast meats like lamb, beef
and even goose
- which is particularly handy for this time of year!
Value for money: Gold star!
Dinner Party Rating: A wine with a Devil story is always a winner.
