'The Scoundrel' by Magpie Estate

Shiraz, 2015

Australia Red

Barossa Valley 75cl

'Scoundrel' is a new range by Magpie Estate, made especially for a group of the UK's leading independent wine merchants, known as Vindependents.
These are stand alone wines made in an approachable and typical Magpie style.
Coming from a number of vineyards in the Western Ridges and Northern districts of the Barossa. Aged c18 months in oak. At blending we added around 2.5% Petite Sirah to give the wine a bit more depth and structure.
Black fruits and spice on the nose with some seasoned oak. Black cherry and plum.
Dense and spicy on the palate, blackberry, black cherry, spice, chocolate and a touch of liquorice. Really good depth, a lovely savoury style, tannins are soft but the wine will repay further aging. Lots of flavour at a very fair price.
