Grenache Shiraz Mourvedre Viognier Nagambie Victoria
Victorian accords of Grenache, Shiraz and Mourvedre are sufficiently rare, ideally, an estate must have a heritage which dates back to early settlement before they can consider crafting such a wine. The first nascent plantings at Tahbilk were sown with cuttings from Valley Rhone. Shiraz, Grenache and Mourvedre have taken to the local surrounds and today yield the finest harvests in Victoria. A deeply charismatic wine of provocative sweet and savoury fruit characters, exquisitely balanced over a length of elegant, tensile tannins.
Bright scarlet colour. Cherry smoke nose, apricots and char, chocolate box aromas over a background of spiced oak. Opulent, elegant palate, fleshy, nutty and luscious with layers of red berries, viscous with fruit, seamless, the cherry spice of Grenache, the bramble plum juiciness of Shiraz and savoury tannic grip of Mourvedre, finishing long, velvety and fine.
