|This is something special - classic Rhone Valley grape varieties but grown in Australia. So, big full rich & bold but with a style & character that links towards its French origins. A big & classy wine. Aromas of coffee and spice with a hint of fennel while the palate is youthful with the old vine Grenache providing raspberry's and black cherries, with black currant from the Shiraz and the Mourvedre giving verve , all supported by a firm yet fine tannin structure with well integrated oak adding complexity to the wine.Great with MEAT!
Colour: Red 55% Shiraz, 37% Grenache and 8%
Review Feb 2015
James Halliday Wine Companion 2010 McLaren Vale Bush Vine Shiraz Grenache Mourvedre Rating: 95 A 57/35/8% blend, the components utterly synergistic; the result is a spicy, savoury elegance that bodes well for the long life ahead of a wine that has made light of its 4 years to date; the oak, tannin and alcohol management could not have been improved on, the fruit expression a delight.
