Old world savoury Tempranillo meets new world vibrant fleshy flavoursome Shiraz in this new interpretation of a classic Australian wine style
- WA - Margaret River
- Western Australia
As soon as you open it you know you're onto something good. It's chocolatey and red/black berried and while not at all heavy, it still manages to fill all corners of your mouth with flavour. It feels and tastes good, and finishes well. Rating 93 - Drink by 2020 - James Halliday, Australian Wine Companion 02 MAR 2016
Winery Tasting Notes
Vibrant red/black colour with a deep opaque centre.
The nose displays a complex blend of violets and spicy black pepper notes of the Shiraz with the more savoury licorice aromas from the Tempranillo.
Shiraz and Tempranillo are wonderful partners; two old varieties coming together to make a new vibrant blend. The Shiraz brings all the Australian fruit power, deep plum flavours with a peppery edge in a fleshy fruit sweet palate. The Tempranillo adds savoury elements and complex tannin structure to the wine resulting in a more complete wine than either of the two components could make on their own. This wine has all the sweet fleshiness that we expect in Shiraz with the added benefit of textural complexity.
