Yalumba Hand Picked Mourvèdre Grenache Shiraz 2005 is deep, dark, purple ruby red in colour. A very attractive and aromatic nose offers sweet black cherry with rustic forest floor aromas, dried herbs and spices. The palate displays stylish flavours with complex fruits and spice. Quite savoury with funky complexities, finishing with fine, soft, balanced tannins.
The Barossa Valley has a long history as one of
Australia's premium wine regions for growing
Mourvedre, Grenache and Shiraz. These
Southern France varietals offer a provenance of
synergy with each component making a
contribution to the complexity of the wine.
Mourvedre, more commonly known in Australia
as Mataro, is the dominant variety in this Hand
Picked blend. It provides sturdy and robust
characters, balanced by the perfume of Grenache
and the spice of Shiraz. Firm yet silky, with
power and length on the palate, a complex wine
with supreme elegance.
