Domaine du Salut Graves AC Rouge, Bordeaux 2010 $29

This is a good intro to Bordeaux red wine, a merlot-cabernet blend that’s driven by the merlot. The colour doesn’t impress much but it smells invitingly of raspberry and vanilla, turning to mulberry and rose-petals on the palate, with some assertive tannins adding structure. A very pleasant food wine. Now to 2020. 12.5 per cent alcohol. 88/100 (Huon’s Wine 360)

Food: duck confit

Stockists: Vaucluse Cellars; Corkscrew Darlinghurst
