Magpie Estate 'The Call Bag'

Mourvedre-Grenache, 2012

Australia Red

Barossa Valley 75cl

The latest Call Bag.
This is our 'estate' wine if you like, and this is right in the zone of previous releases. Roughly 65% Grenache, 35% Mourvedre, the usual 22 months in oak, little new oak say 5-10% the balance in one year old French and older neutral American oak barrels.
Lovely fruitcake and spice nose, black cherry, clove, cinnamon, with a touch of oak. Really bright and juicy, mulled wine spices alongside the black cherry and plum fruit, a touch of creamy oak and ripe tannins. Drinking really well now, we also like this wine with some age when it becomes really soft and supple. Just starting to move into the secondary phase, with some tertiary characters and more complexity.
