Description

The single thing I like most about this wine is that when you smell it and taste it, the three varieties are individually apparent. There’s the juicy, fruitiness of the Grenache, the more savoury and darker influence of the Shiraz and then there’s that Malbec which is all red fruits. As a whole it’s magnificent and it’s spicy and fruity in a Christmas pudding sort of way. The palate is pretty and harmonious too. This is a wine that’s nice and easy to drink if you just want a drink and gives you plenty to contemplate if you feel like knuckling down and thinking about the wine.

It is richly fruited and perfumed on the nose showing dark plum, blueberry jam, vanilla and hazelnut characters with a touch of floral lift. The palate delivers lovely weight and fleshy mouthfeel, wonderfully supported by silky texture and fine tannins. Generous and flavoursome with plenty of tasty flavours. At its best: now to 2027.

This three-way blend has a rich array of glossy, ripe purple-fruit aromas and a gently earthy edge with subtle oak spice. The rich plum and blueberry flavors are framed in a smooth, supple bed of fine tannin. Drink now. Screw cap.
