- Cellar Drink Now - 5 years (2019-2024)
- ABV 14.5%
- Closure: Cork
A blend of 60% Grenache, 20% Shiraz and 20% Mataro matured for 15 months in 2500 litre French oak foudres. Impenetrable black dark red colour with a dark red hue. Aromas of dark raspberries, black cherries and liquorice have a leathery barnyard overlay with scorched earth, dried meats and spicy cedar following on. Full in body, rich flavours of dark to black raspberries and liquorice are infused with earthy leather and dried meat characters. Finishes spicy with some lively acidity. Sturdy but fine grained tannins and a medium length aftertaste.
Cellar 4-5 years.
One of the best values and flat-out sexiest wines in the lineup is the 2016 Grenache-Shiraz-Mataro. Driven by the 1901-planted Grenache from Seppeltsfield that makes up 60% of the blend, it's richer, darker and deeper than the Riverside bottling. Sage and licorice notes add nuance to the black cherries on the nose and palate of this full-bodied, richly concentrated and layered offering. Drink 2018-2030.
