Overview

This blend of Grenache (45%), Mourvedre (28%) and Shiraz (27%) is an homage to the great wines of the Southern Rhone but with a very Barossan accent. These three classic red wine varieties are blended to showcase the unique qualities of each whilst ensuring balance, purity of fruit and the utmost drinkability.

2012 was a wonderful vintage in the Barossa delivering beautifully balanced and expressive fruit. These qualities are immediately evident in this vibrant and seductive wine made without the use of oak to ensure the pure, bright fruit shines through.

Medium bodied with a mineral core underlying the crisp red fruits and spice this wine is fresh, complex and beguiling.
