2016 ‘Los Companeros’ Shiraz Tempranillo
Medium / deep red.
Lifted, spiced cherry and blueberry fruit with some choc/mint notes overlay a gentle earthiness adding another dimension. The French oak is very much in the background not playing a major role here.
Bright, juicy and very approachable, the blueberry and chocolate flavours are nicely tempered by some savoury tannins and well-balanced acidity. Quite long and satisfying.
The richness and softness of the Shiraz (90%) is complimented by the slightly rustic tannins of the Tempranillo (10%). Drink now and over the next 3-5 years. It works perfectly well with anything from pizza, to tacos, to a humble lamb chop cooked on the BBQ. Enjoy.
