Varietal: Rhone Red Blends
Item no. 97565
The style of wine aimed for is a medium-bodied yet complex red, showing the fruit characteristics of this traditional blend with minimal oak influence. A nicely weighted wine showing good fruit and palate length, and capable of 3-5 years cellaring if desi
From a very good vintage in the Barossa Valley, this wine was vintaged from dry-grown Grenache, Mourvedre, and Shiraz growing in our Draycott block.
"The 2004 Clochemerle, an Australian version of Chateauneuf du Pape, is a blend of 48% Grenache, 38% Mourvedre, 12% Shiraz, and a dollop of Cabernet Sauvignon. This extraordinarily elegant, fruity, full-bodied red offers notes of sweet cherries, licorice, and strawberry jam. Light on its feet with tremendous definition and purity as well as striking finesse and harmony, it tips the scales at only 14% alcohol, which is low for the vintage and for this area of Barossa. Consume it over the next 7-8 years."
