Big on bright strawberry and raspberry fruit, with a creamy edge and a refreshing bite of crispness – a lovely full-bodied pink from the Barossa.
Not red and certainly not white, but midway between the two, Le Bâtard is the apogee of ambiguity, the outsider. For that reason it’s become a bit of a fighter – proud, robust and fruity with an attractive bit of bite deep within. It's perfect for all occasions – from a refreshing glassful to a dazzling partner with food.
