Magpie Estate 'The Beak'

Shiraz-Grenache, 2012

Australia Red

Barossa Valley 75cl

The new Beak has just arrived due to some stock management issues we will go to 2012 briefly before returning to 2011!
It's roughly a 60% Shiraz 40% Grenache blend although there is a touch of Mourvedre too.
Fairly classic Beak style. Ripe plum on the nose with hints of black cherry, blackberry and chocolate.
Bright and juicy on the palate the dark fruits are sweet, with hints of raspberry, chocolate and mocha. Black berry and cherry fruits are the main player here with some nice oak too, the tannins are really soft and it has a long finish with mocha and chocolate. Good long finish that is quite savoury. I am pretty sure this will appeal to the many Beak red fans we have!
