Grenache Mourvedre Barossa South Australia
Two thirds Grenache, the balance in Mataro, picked off the Tscharke estate vineyards at Marananga. Preserving the integrity and retaining the eloquence of each variety is essential to the finished wine, both parts are encouraged to enunciate their uniqueness of character. A course of whole bunch ferments adds textural richness and introduces complexity, a separate term of age under seasoned oak permits the wines to mature and evolve as individuals. A seamless assemblage that's highly articulate of Barossa, as both parts express their personal charm.
Bright garnet hues. Red fruit aromas, berries and currant, citrus, cooking spice and bright red apple. An excitingly fruit filled palate, raspberries and strawberries up front are interwoven by spices and pastoral savouryness, a whisper of carob oak and the support of soft tannins. A gentle, easy to appreciate style that's made for sharing, ideally alongside cheeses and fruit, charcuterie and pâté.
