I am loving the Portguese varieties getting more of a run in the Barossa giving full-flavoured wines with a tasty bite of acidity. They are not going to age particularly long but they show another side to the Barossa while also drinking well as the more serious wines mature to hit their peak.
This example opens up with a wide array of beautifully bright and vibrant fruits. Blueberry, boysenberry and violets with some more savoury, tarry notes in the mix too – you could quite literally bask in the beauty of this wine for hours and its ethereal aromas. Acidity then leads the charge on the palate where dark fruits with some earthy notes are supported by grainy tannins to a long and spicy finish. it’s a great little casual bistro red which you could even enjoy slightly chilled with tapas or charcuterie.
