Z ‘Roman’ Barossa Valley Grenache/Shiraz/Mataro 2016

Blended Red from Australia - South Australia
Review Date : 27-Dec-2017
Dark, deep, black hued ruby-red colour with purple hues, a little lighter on edge, youthful in appearance. The nose is full with rich, ripe and deep blackberry fruit entwined with a layering of dark raspberries, boysenberries, liquorice and spice, and a little eucalypt. Full bodied, the palate is packed with rich, ripe, sweetly luscious blackberry fruit melded with black plums, boysenberry and mineral notes. The fruit sweetness is balanced by fine, grainy tannin textures that provide underlying structure, and the wine flows with good energy and liveliness, and alcoholic power along a plush but well-textured line leading to a lingering finish. This is a rich, plush and succulently ripe-fruited GSM with blackberry, plum and boysenberry flavours on a lively, powerfully driven palate. Match with slow-cooked red meat dishes and Mediterranean fare over the next 7-9+ years A barrel selection wine, 50% Grenache, 35% Shiraz and 15% Mataro from 90 y.o. bush vines, fermented to 14.5% alc., the wine aged 16 months in seasoned French oak. 201 dozen made. 18.5/20 Nov 2017 RRP AUS$35.00
