Pindarie Tempranillo Sangiovese Shiraz 2020
Any wine crafted at the hands of well-known Barossa winemaker, Peter Leske, is always worth a look. This is a multi-national blend if ever there was, even if all grown in the Barossa – Spanish Temp, Italian Sangio and French (or Aussie, depending on your perspective) Shiraz. The final blend spends a short time in French oak and the result is a delicious combo. Deep garnet in colour with a nose exhibiting fresh young herbs and spices, animal skins, chocolate and a hint of cold tea. Quite pleasingly funky in style, it is also showing some early complexity. Good length, firm tannins and a drinking window which should stretch for at least four or five years. The palate shows more cherry and cranberry notes too. Good drinking.
