Magpie Estate 'The Gomersal'

"Sweet and spicy but with plenty of dry, authoritative tannin and keen length. There is no question of this wine's quality." 94 Points James Halliday Australian Wine Companion June 2016

This is Magpie Estate's premium Grenache, at Magpie we only release the wine when we are totally convinced of the quality. So the first release since 2009. The grapes come from the Neldner vineyard in the Gomersal sub region. These are 55+ year old vines.
We selected the three best puncheon's, all 1 year old French oak, and at blending added 3% Eden Valley Shiraz.
Classic Gomersal nose- raspberry, plum, cinnamon and clove spice, white pepper and some creamy oak too. The nose really evokes the floral and spicy characters so typical of the Barossa Valley.
Bright and juicy with strawberry and raspberry fruit, black cherry and lots of spice- 5 spice, cinnamon, clove, white pepper and creamy oak. Good acidity too means it's fresh and bright and will evolve well over the next 7-10 years.
