The Colonial Estate 'John Speke' Single Vineyard

Grenache-Shiraz-Mourvedre, 2005

Australia Red

Barossa Valley 75cl

A fabulous voluptuous single vineyard wine. A blend of 50% Grenache, 30% Shiraz and 20% Mourvedre from the Marananga/Greenock region. Aged entirely in French oak. Ripe berry and plum fruit with chocolate and mocha on the nose. It's young and quite oaky at this stage but there is also huge black cherry and plum fruit. Clove and pepper alongside really creamy oak. It's a tad oaky at this young stage but this is no problem because this is a baby and there is a purity of voluptuous ripe fruit lurking beneath and ready to show it's true colours over the next 12 months and will drink well over the next 7-10 years.
