$24.00

Blends of Grenache, Shiraz and Mourvedre (a.k.a. Mataro or Monastrell) is McLaren Vale’s signature blended wine.

Tasting Note
Colour: Deep red magenta with a brick red, purple hue.
Nose: Cedar and nutty oak note with a hint of ethereal vanilla with blue fruits that is reminiscent of mulberry. A touch of liquorice, cedar and crisp acidity and alcohol lift adds complexity.
Palate: Ripe and fleshy up front black fruits combine well with a solid mid palate highlighting oak tannin and flavour. Crisp acidity keeps the freshness and appeal of this full bodied style.
Potential: This vintage has produced fruity wines that have medium term cellaring potential.
Foods: Steak, lamb roasts and hearty stews.
