Fine Red Wine 2010 Description ...
The Grenache portion of this wine was open fermented in small open fermenters with gentle twice daily pump overs for delicate flavour extraction. The Shiraz and Mataro lend body and black fruit characters to the wine.
Fairley's Wines Tasting Note ...
The wine appears bright cranberry red with upfront red fruit and vanilla crème on the nose. The palate has an abundance of strawberry, redcurrant and blueberry with subtle cinnamon and nutmeg, velvety soft tannins, finishing rich with sweet dark chocolate and warm spice. Needs to breathe and would be perfect with casseroles or beef dishes.
