2012 Shiraz Mourvedre Viognier
While blending all three grape varieties we create a layering of flavours within the profile. We take the spicy dusty earthly characters of Mourvedre we take the spicy and the punchy red berry fruits of Shiraz and we take the lifted aromatics of the Viognier and by adding all three components together the result is a much more complex and layered pallet than we had beforehand.
This is not a full bodied or tannic wine. It's actually quite a medium bodied, soft and approachable wine, but it does have those firms, savoury elements particularly from the Mourvedre. Therefore it probably matches a broad range of food and dishes. I probably would n't go too heavy on the meats, more sort of Mediterranean style cuisine.
