Magpie Estate 'The Fakir'

Grenache, 2012

Australia Red

Barossa Valley 75cl

This all comes from the Neldner vineyards in Gomersal, this year nothing really stood out to bottle a Gomersal so all the grapes have gone into the Fakir, including declassified Gomersal.
As ever a combination of old and newer oak, using hogshead and larger puncheons
Lovely spice- nutmeg, clove, cinnamon on the nose, berry fruits and seasoned French oak.
Bright and juicy on the palate, the fruit has a lovely crunchy juicy feel, lots of spice and some integrated creamy oak that gives the wine length and texture, whilst still allowing the fruit to sing. Delicious now and over the next 5 years, again very food versatile - works well with spicy foods as well as more typical richer dishes.
