Overview

The three varieties originate from the Rhône Valley, France. Since its introduction, Shiraz has become the most planted red grape variety in Australia and is renowned for producing rich full bodied wines. Mouvédre, sometimes known as Mataro, represents a very small percentage of the total red grape production in Australia and tends to produce medium sized berries with spicy aromatics and solid tannin structures. Grenache is a not widely planted variety in Australia but gaining prominence. It produces fragrant “jubey” wines that are generally lightly coloured.

Expert Reviews

"A fine effort in an authentic southern Rhône style that marries delightful fruit sweetness with savoury qualities and a vibrant spicy, peppery aspect. An earthy bouquet of blueberries, plums and blue flowers with meaty undertones precedes a round, smooth and generous palate whose deep berry/cherry flavours are underpinned by fine, dusty and drying tannins. It’s long and lingering, with a persistent core of genuine ripeness."Rating 90 - Jeremy Oliver, The Australian Wine Annual 2010

Winery Tasting Notes

Aroma

The 2006 Crescent is a warm night in a busy Marrakech Market - a fusion of spices with aromas of cherry, strawberry and lemongrass. Accents of cedar, slate and new leather also provoke the interest.

Palate

The palate is fine yet rich; medium bodied with a rustic feel. Intense fl avours of cherry and spice are woven throughout fragrant undergrowth and subtle oak. Dusty cocoa-like tannins frame the layers, leaving a sumptuous finish that begs for extravagant fare. A powerfully complex yet elegant wine.

Cellaring Potential

Drinking well now but will develop greater sophistication over the next 10-15 years.

Food Matching

Try with lamb korma or spicy tagine.
