The Grenache was fully fragrant. The Shiraz balanced but rich and the Mataro had a small berried explosion of spice in each bunch. The characteristic musk of Grenache is evident at this stage, and will increase with age, alongside the dark plums of the Shiraz and the herbaceous spice of the Mataro.

Tasting Notes: The Grenache was fully fragrant. The Shiraz balanced but rich and the Mataro had a small berried explosion of spice in each bunch. The characteristic musk of Grenache is evident at this stage, and will increase with age, alongside the dark plums of the Shiraz and the herbaceous spice of the Mataro.

Much like the great Grenache wines of the world, this wine will reward patient cellaring of 25+ years. The complex delicacy of the blend will elegantly complement duck, quail and other rich dishes.
