Barossa Valley Estate Grenache Shiraz Mourvèdre 2018
|Region||Australia, South Australia, Barossa Valley|
|Brand||Barossa Valley Estate|
Despite being a near even split of Grenache, Shiraz and Mourvèdre, it's the former that shines, billowing notes of flowers, tangy raspberries and black cherries followed by something meaty, savory and spicy and towing heavy-set cola scented oak. The palate feels a little overworked, lacking some freshness-the mouthfeel is rich and broad with ripe red and black fruit, chunky, savory tannins and oak, but it's saved at the last minute by an appealing lift of tangy fruit.
