Description

The 2016 vintage is a blend of Grenache, Mourvèdre, Shiraz, Cinsault and Carignan. These varieties are historically grown in the southern Rhone Valley of France near the Mediterranean, and are blended together to make the local wine. These varieties also have a natural affinity for the Barossa Valley.

Appearance

Bright garnet with a medium purple hue.

Aroma

The aroma is of cherries, strawberries, spice and Provencale herbs.

Palate

The palate is wonderfully fresh and with juicy forest fruits, dried herbs and a creamy complexity derived from its maturation on yeast lees in old French oak barrels. The concentrated fruits, fine tannin and perfectly integrated acid complete the wine.

James Halliday Halliday Wine Companion

December, 2018

"Grenache, shiraz, mourvedre, carignan and cinsault from very old and younger vineyards, the components partially co-fermented and soon blended to protect the vibrantly and supple mouthfeel the wine always has. The tannins are ultra-fine, the finish long and fresh."
