2011 Mount Majura Vineyard TSG Tempranillo Shiraz Graciano

Rioja varieties Tempranillo (43%) and Graciano (16%) team up with a 41% Shiraz component to make up this unique and exciting blend. From elevated vineyards and reportedly from a difficult harvest, this  
is a wine of surprising complexity and class. 

An attractive light crimson red colour with a fragrant bouquet of black plum, cherry cola, pepper and sweet spice. Light to medium bodied. Fleshy red and black fruits form the luscious core and there are some mineral notes, which I like. Fine grained, supple tannins provide support and lead to a long silky finish. 

Soft, spicy and generous, this is a deliciously savoury wine that could easily take an ice bath and still drink beautifully. This is Mount Majura's fourth vintage of this intriguing blend and definitely a wine to watch in the future. Try with tapas or mezze dishes. A Qantas Business Class wine. Highly Recommended.
