Shimmering ruby. Ripe cherry, dark berries, peppery spices and pungent flowers on the nose. Shows good depth and breadth to its smoky blackberry and bitter cherry flavors, which gain weight and turn sweeter with air. Plush but not at all heavy, showing solid closing punch, smooth tannins and lingering black and blue fruit notes. 2022-2029
The Barossa Valley Grenache Shiraz Mataro is intense in its perfumed aromas of cherry liqueur and blackberry compote, with notes of spice and anise. The palate is voluptuous and supple, with the Grenache component shining through. Flavours of dark fruits predominate with velvety tannins providing a backbone to carry the flavours through to the finish.
