Hastwell & Lightfoot [McLaren Vale SA], Fat'n'Skinny Picker's Choice Shiraz, Tempranillo, Barbera 2017

The team of Hastwell & Lightfoot has released a couple of quirky reds under the Fat'n'Skinny label as portrayed  on the quaint cartoon label.
This eclectic blend could cheekily give homage to the European Union spirit as the melange of French Shiraz snuggles up to Spanish Tempranillo and Italian Barbera.
This results in an amorphous, seamlessly solid red with slides smoothly across the palate.
The Barbera component partakes a leathery mid-palate grip supported by a smooth delivery of red  berries / sour cherry.
It is an unpretentious gutsy winter-warmer [14% Alc] which would find favour with mixed grills and, in our case, hearty savoury beef mince and mash
