2018 Domaine Bornard Point Barre

If you are smitten by big, robust Barossa shiraz wines, please don’t buy this one.

The Point Barre is made from the Poulsard (aka Ploussard) grape and is a light, delicate, almost translucent red wine that gives off aromas of red currants, citrus and saddle leather with a touch of cinnamon. It is not high in alcohol (at a pleasant 12%), and it does not have aggressive tannins. Instead, there is a purity and silkiness to this wine that makes it quite ethereal. It matches with just about any food you care to think of.

The name, by the way, literally translates as “full stop”. So there is Ploussard, full stop, nothing else! Of course, this includes no added sulphites.

Normally all the Ploussard from this vineyard is used to produce the amazing pet nat called Tant Mieux, but the harvest was so good that there were enough grapes to make some Point Barre. Tony also used the grape name on this occasion!
