Powell & Son, Riverside Grenache Mataro Shiraz Barossa Valley 2017
The Barossa Valley Grenache Shiraz Mataro combines all three of the great Rhone red varieties, harmonizing the unique attributes of each variety into a complete wine. The blend is predominantly Grenache (approximately two thirds Ã¢â‚¬â€œ vintage dependent) from mature Barossa Valley Grenache bush vines, with Shiraz and Mataro making up the balance. The parcels are matured for 15 months in 2,300-litre French oak foudres prior to blending and bottling. As the dominant component, Grenache offers powerful aromas of red fruits, kirsch, and black cherries, complemented by mincemeat, leather, game and heavy spices from the Shiraz and Mataro influences.
