<10 tasting notes
(89% Shiraz, 11% Mourvèdre. Barossa Valley, McLaren Vale and Padthaway. 10 months in seasoned French and American oak. 14.5% alc, TA 6.2g/L, pH 3.64)
Note the Mourvèdre not Mataro – why? A quirk? This looks open and ready for business. Really quite plump and open nose, the fruit a little jammy and the Mourvèdre an earthy suggestion. Dry and punchy palate is mid weight and initially looks a little plump and Penfolds oak heavy. But the finish is pure fruit. Pleasant and short term tasty. A further relook at this after the Bin 138 made it look very simple and light. Plenty of easy enjoyment but more of a sub $20 wine than the $30 RRP.
16.8/20, 89/100. Drink: 2014-2020
