Magpie Estate 'The Mixed Thing'

, 2013

Australia Red

Barossa Valley 75cl

The third release of the 'Mixed Thing', and stylistically this is exactly what we set out to make. A blend of Grenache, old vine Cinsault, Cabernet Franc, Sangiovese, Petit Verdot and Savagnin. All co-fermented and pressed off skins early to make it more vibrant and have less tannin.
It's made to be enjoyed whilst young and juicy, and great served cool. Bright cherry, redcurrant and plum on the nose. Really fresh and crunchy on the palate with bright red and black cherry, raspberry too, a touch of spice and soft tannins, the fruit is sweet but there is an appealing savoury character too. Aged in old barrels, so no oak influence. Just under 13.5% alcohol and a really versatile red. With a light chill it's really appealing. Drink over the next 24 months.
