Overview

The palate is opulent but elegant, viscous and supple. It shows the spice and cherry typical of McLaren Vale Grenache, together with the juiciness of Shiraz and the tannins of Mourvèdre. Infinitely fine tannins rise long after swallowing, leaving the drinker with a final blast of dark chocolates and sweet alcohol.

Winery Tasting Notes

Grape Varietals

71% Grenache, 16% Shiraz, 13% Mourvèdre.

Colour

Crimson.

Aroma

The wonderful comforting smells of yesteryear that I remember from my grandparent’s house, the ones that seem lost in this highly homogenised world we live in today, are evident in this wine. Pink musk notes from the lolly jar, clove spices from the cupboard, and the rhubarb pudding baking in the oven.

All mashed up with the wafts of scent from dry leaves of the old lemon tree as they crunch underfoot, and even the dusty wooden box smells from Grandpa’s old workshop are there too.

Food Matching

I can’t go past duck with this wine, or it will also go well with a spicy chorizo sausage and pasta dish.
