Margan Breaking Ground Tempranillo Graciano Shiraz 2016

Margan “pioneered the inter-planting (field blend) of these 3 varieties” in the Hunter Valley in 2010. The grapes are picked at the same time and vinified together.  Grown in the red volcanic, Broke Fordwich sub region of the Hunter Valley.

Earthy, savoury, subtle, cool aromas with distinct dusty plums, deep raspberry, rich violets and fresh leafy herbs.  Naturally handsome, groovy and understated, yet textural and with a dark fruit confidence. Emboldened by a rich central vein of vibrancy and rich dark chocolate. This demands a slow cooked beef cheek as a powerful match,
