Magpie Estate 'The Mixed Thing'

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. Serve lightly chilled it makes a great barbecue/summer red.
