A delightful and savoury expression of Barossa Grenache Shiraz Mataro. Best drunk with meals and mates and a second glass too. Only 2,253 dozen produced.
The difference with this red wine is at the end: the way it dries out and the way it also lingers. This is the best of the Barossa - and so eloquently expressed.
There are no ham-fisted greetings here; but rather a look, a friendly touch on the arm, a kind comment.
And the perfumed aromatics are all about hidden fruit depths.
There’s certainly rich fruit flavour and a soft tannic grip, and there’s texture; but this is a wine that remains fresh.
It defeats gloominess as it transports you to a late summer and the early happy days of autumn, when the grapes on the vine sang their harvest songs.
