Cellar: Drink now - 1 Years (2017-2018)
ABV: 12.5%
Closure: Stelvin

A blend of Grenache, Cinsault and Mourvedre. Translucent bright salmon pink colour with a watery hue. Elevated peach and cherry aromas are drawn from the glass with water melon and spice also apparent. Possessing a lovely soft, rounded mouthfeel the palate dishes up moreish flavours of peaches, raspberries and musk with some light spice on the dry finish. Good freshness with an aftertaste of peaches, raspberries, light musk and spice.

Other Reviews…..
Grenache, cinsaut and mourvedre. The complexity of the fragrant bouquet with its exotic spice, dried rose petals and talcum powder segues to the palate with its Byzantine mosaic of juicy red fruits. It is so highly flavoured you might expect some sweetness on the finish, but it's dry. Drink by 2018.

James Halliday – Australian Wine Companion

Made with Grenache, Mataro and Cinsaut. Spot on. Pale and savoury, quiet and soft, with red fruits, a slippery texture, low acidity, and a particularly good and long finish where the flavour really seems to burst forth. Drink 2017-2019.
