Description of Dandelion Vineyards Menagerie Of The Barossa Grenache Shiraz Mataro 2018

Dandelion Vineyards Menagerie Of The Barossa Grenache Shiraz Mataro 2018 (Grenache and Shiraz)

TASTING NOTES:

  • Nose: Grenache on show aromatically; very grown-up grenache thanks to the shiraz and mataro components which bring a more rustic and savoury perfume. Plums, earth, rose petals crushed in the hand - heightened.
  • Palate: There is tension immediately, a clean and long red wine, rounded and rolling tannins taking over the mid to back palate This is NOT a lumpish red wine: there is generosity and oomph, but no heavy-handedness. The complexity of aroma with the dipping and diving fruit flavour of red berry compote, green herbs, spice, pepper and fine shavings of dark chocolate make for a playful seriousness.

APPELLATION: McLaren Vale

VINEYARD: Dandelion Vineyards

GRAPES: Grenache, Shiraz,

PREPARATION AND AGEING: After handpicking selected bunches of the Menagerie field blend in mid-March, winemaker Elena Brooks let the whole bunches ferment together in open-top fermenters with ambient yeasts and hand plunging for 14 days, before basket pressing into old French Oak barriques, to then mature for a further 12 months in the same oak before bottling without fining or filtration to capture the essence of Menagerie of the Barossa.

PAIRING: Grilled chicken marinated in black pepper or a powerful and long-cooked ratatouille

ALCOHOL: 14.5

Vermelho mais claro do que o normal. Odor muito bom a rosas.Todos os vinhos de Dandelion Vineyards são muito equilibrados.
Com este tinto teria combinado bem com uma carne suave.

4 /5

Ze serveerden ons deze op de eerste gerecht. Met een compromis.
Goede rood en dakpan randen van kleur. Zeer goede geur van rozen. Een beetje zout maar mooi.

Me salió muy bien de precio en Uvinum.
Rojo rubí muy luminoso. Aromas a frutos rojos como la fresa y la frambuesa. El gusto de este Grenache me encantó.
