Grenache Shiraz Mataro

2010 BAROSSA VALLEY
SHIRAZ

This wine typifies the Scorpiiion style which we’ve been working on with Pete since 2004. The deep, inky purple/black colour gives warning that this is a powerful and full flavoured wine. Despite the power, layering and impressive complexity of the wine it remains superbly well-structured with good balance throughout the lengthy palate. None of the constituent elements overpower or mask the others. The richness of the black fruits is complimented by ripe, soft tannins and artful touches of French Oak. Alcohol levels are modest compared to many, contemporary Barossa Shiraz’s and the wine is not overtly alcoholic. Although the wine is drinking really well currently, it is a keeper and will reward careful cellaring for 10 to 15 years.
