Magpie Estate 'The Beak'

Shiraz-Grenache, 2011

Australia Red

Barossa Valley 75cl

A look at the new vintage of Beak which will be here in c3 months. From the cool, very difficult 2011 vintage.
70% Shiraz, 30% Grenache. It's quite different to the much bigger denser 2010, but given the vintage it's really very attractive. Lovely bright colour, cherry and plum on the nose, a hint of herbaceousness with spice and delicate oak.
Medium bodied and really juicy on the palate, much more red fruit than often is the case, cherry and red berry with spice and a hint of oak. It's a wine for early consumption and very food friendly being that touch lighter.
Will be a good Beak to have for what will hopefully be the warmer weather!
