Yalumba Samuel's Collection Barossa Grenache Shiraz Mataro 2016

Barossa Valley, South Australia, AustraliaThe grenache, shiraz, and mataro were sourced across Barossa, and native fermented separately in a mix of oak vats and stainless, before blending and resting for 11 months in French, Hungarian, and American oak hogsheads (13% new). Boysenberry jam, plush raspberry, spiced cherry floods the juicy palate, with a brace of tight spices and softer tannins to guide this to a snappy finish. At 13.5%, this is quite a fresh, welcoming take on Barossa GSM, approachable now, ideally with grilled chicken or pork.Tasted: 29 November 2020Tasted by: Prices:
