The traditional Rhone blend which has found a southern home in the warmer regions of South Australia, not least the Barossa. 40% grenache, 34% shiraz and 6% mataro, it has already picked up serious bling around the world. And probably sowed some confusion – does anyone who doesn’t speak Aussie have a clue what a ‘little tacker’ is? So named here as Trent was once just that to parents, Helen and Grant.
The wine offers notes of herbs, lavender, spices and a mix of red and darker berries with warm earth tones. The influence of the Grenache does stand out and hints of strawberries emerge in time. Softly textured with silky tannins, this is a really attractive offering with a good future.
