Taltarni Discovery Grenache Shiraz Mourvèdre 2021


The Discovery range of wines is a new initiative from Taltarni and, as the name suggests, looks to grapes and blends not generally seen from the maker in the past. Here, Taltarni takes on the South Australians at their own game with a sweet fruited GSM that delivers one juicy, spicy ride. Grenache shines bringing confection and floral notes in musk stick, licorice and violet with cherry and plum fruits. On the palate, flavours fill out in a rush of sweet, black fruit power, plush and warm, joined by chocolate and woodsy oak spice. But it’s not over-blown, thanks to some well-measured tannins. Lasts long in the mouth – looks like GSM in the Pyrenees is a natural fit.
