Winemaker's Notes:

Layers is crafted to illustrate our belief that the whole is greater than the sum of the parts. Don't be fooled by this wine's easy drinking and approachable nature. The blend of three classic Barossa red varieties (Shiraz, Grenache, Mourvèdre) and two new ones (Tempranillo, Carignan), create a multi-dimensional wine with beautiful aromas of dark plum, chocolate, and savory black olive while the palate is a soft mouthful of forest fruits with mild bramble undertones. It's a quintet of a blend in perfect harmony!

Blend: Shiraz 41%, Mourvèdre 20%, Tempranillo 19%, Grenache 17% and Carignane 3%
