Australia Red

Barossa Valley 75cl

Buy a case for 145.00 (12.08 per bottle)

Good vintage for Mourvedre/Mataro. Coming from 2 vineyards - the majority from Schiller who is producing some quality fruit. Aged in larger puncheons, all second fill American and French. 3% Shiraz blended in to give more complexity.
Lovely warm spicy nose. Mulling spices, plum, black cherry and a touch of oak.
Medium to full bodied, classic Mourvedre savoury, almost meaty character with lots of lovely black fruits, hints of clove and pepper, oak in the background giving the wine extra depth and a gently creamy character, good acidity keeps it fresh and lively.
