Tomasello Winery Blackberry Wine 2012
Made from 100% Marion Blackberries, Tomasello Blackberry Wine is a full-bodied blackberry wine with dominant cassis and brambleberry character. It is moderately sweet and can be served both as a dessert wine, or in a dessert like English Triffle with Tomasello Blackberry Wine. In classical French cooking, Tomasello Blackberry Wine can be made into a sauce reduction. Try our Filet Mignon with Blackberry Wine Reduction.
Sweet, wet to start, then semi-dry to finish. Depending on when you pick blackberries, they can range from a little tart like a raspberry to nature's candy. This is right on the edge between the two with the lucious exterior berry taste to the slightly tart flavour around the seed. Although I favour the sugary side of the berry, Tomasello captured the remarkable dynamics of the fruit. My preference is for a wet wine through & through, but of all wines with this kind of flavour, I have no problem crowning Tomasello's as king.
Two and a half glasses
It was good but not as sweet as I expected. They haven't quite mastered the blackberry taste
