Winemaker's Notes

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.

I got my first bottle of this from the wine club and wanted to buy more after tasting it, but it wasn't available. I bought a bottle of the 2004 instead. The 2004 did not impress me like the 2005 did. Thinking I may have been misled when I drank the 2005 I bought two more bottles the 2005 (now in stock) and the 2004. I'd intended to do a blind test, but opened the 2005 tonight and was immediately impressed again. Now the 2004 will just have to sit and wait as I'm going to order more of the 2005! :) This wine is very enjoyable from the aroma to the taste. I like this wine alone and with heavier foods.
