An unoaked blend of 60% Grenache, 30% Mataro and 10% Shiraz. Deep dark red black core with a dark red hue. Enticing dark plum, dark cherry and liquorice aromas are trailed by some red raspberry, scorched earth and peppered dried herb notes. Savoury and mid weighted the palate features red to dark raspberry, liquorice and red plum fruits over infusions of fresh herbs, earth and pepper. Juicy yet elegant feel with fresh acidity. Fine grained yet sturdy tannins with a lengthy conclusion that’s peppery, succulent and energetic.
Drink over the next 6-8 years.

Other Reviews….
I remember falling in love with the Joshua back in 2003, having a sneaky little tasting at the Tanunda Hotel in 2004 then doing vintage with Rolf Binder in 2005, where Kym Teusner was the winemaker, and seeing it all come together. I've been hooked ever since. A blend of grenache, mataro and shiraz unencumbered by artifact with pure, spicy plummy fruits, ginger spice, citrus blossom, savoury, bright and spacious with a blast of sour morello cherry on the finish. It's still hitting the spot.
Drink by 2031.
