Varietal: Red blend / Grenache (70%) + Mataro (30%)
Region: McLaren Vale, SA
Nose: Floral and sweet fruited.
Palate: Feijoa, orange peel and spice from the Mataro co-mingles nicely with the lively, bright red fruited Grenache. Medium bodied with dusty tannins, the GR/M strikes a nice counterbalance between the openly fruity nature of Grenache and the darker, more brooding nature of Mataro.
Notes: Biodynamically farmed at Yangarra Estate in the distinctive sandy soils of Blewitt Springs were hand-picked on the same day and co-fermented using wild yeast in an open fermenter for 2 weeks. The year was warm, thus this is a warm and soulful drop. The wine shows grip and an engaging spicy edge because of the use of whole bunches in the Mataro.
