Claymore Wines, YNWA, Grenache, Shiraz, Mataro, 2016

65% Grenache, 25% Shiraz, 10% Mataro. Unfiltered and matured in 100% old oak for 10 months. It’s all about the instant appeal: fruit forward with plenty of red berries and fruits. Soft earthy undergrowth sponges the coconutty oak and choc peanut bar. Plump, ripe black and red fruit with a hint of crushed ant and choc/mocha silkiness. Tannins are firm and plentiful, providing plenty of support. A slightly indulgent, but well put together plush ride.

RRP: $20
Alc: 14.4%
Rating: 17/20
