St John’s Road Motley Bunch Grenache Mataro Shiraz 2017
The Barossan Grenache blend is going through a purple patch right now with anything that includes Grenache more popular than ever before. But it is not just the Grenache that counts with a generous splash of Mataro in these blends, with its slightly feral edge, adding plenty of interest. And that is exactly what you’ll find in this blend from St John’s Road.
The wine opens with typically generous Grenache fruits with some sweet dark cherry that is backed by attractive baked earth, aged meat and spice. The wine is then full-bodied, fleshy and generous on the palate with some well balanced coconut scented oak and supple tannins. A moreish and very easy to drink Barossan blend.
