60% Mourvedre, 22% Grenache, 18% Shiraz. This wine is medium depth crimson in colour with a nose of sweet and silken dark cherries and raspberry aromas, followed by a very rustic touch of smoke, leather and raisins. The palate suggests a generous, supple wine with malty chocolatey flavors merging with sweet black cherry fruits, finishing with fine tannins. Aged 10 months in 2 & 3 year old French oak Hogsheads.
Supple, ripe and expressive. A plush mouthful of currant, blackberry and plum fruit mingling with coffee, cream and floral accents. The tannins are almost not there, but the finish just sails on and on. Mourvèdre, Grenache and Shiraz. Drink now through 2015. 325 cases imported.
Dark red. Blackberry, boysenberry and smoked meat on the nose, with a suave undercurrent of vanilla and cola. Broad and fleshy, with good palate-staining intensity to the dark berry compote and gently smoky oak spices. Supple, seductive and open-knit, with very good finishing cling.
