2020 La Petite Vanguard CORSAIR, McLaren Vale
This is a divergent wine away from the typical Vanguardist MO of interesting takes on McLaren Vale and Clare Valley classics.
The Corsair is a blend of three Portuguese red varieties, typically found in the famous fortified wines of the Douro. Tinta Barroca, Touriga Nacional, and Tinta Roriz having a party here. And they are having a great time.
The wine is medium-bodied, blue fruited and flecked with all matter of exotic spices. It's a lovely little red to take you on a trip away from the usual world of Australian reds. It's a fun and perky and lovely to drink.
