The Holy Trinity Grenache Shiraz Mourvèdre 2015

Barossa Valley, South Australia, AustraliaThe Holy Trinity is a rich Barossa GSM, and in 2015 saw 38% grenache, 33% shiraz, 25% mourvedre, and a splash of 4% graciano from 50-120-year-old dry-farmed bush vines. Part of the grenache and shiraz were co-fermented, and all was matured in French oak. This 2015 is a current release on this market, allowing you to see a mightly Barossan with some age. Dried and ripe cherry, black and red currant, mulberry, plush plum, fresh fig is streaked with black licorice, worked leather, medicinal dark cherry, and finely rasped baking spices. Tannins are well integrated at this point, the palate is voluminous, and acidity is lofted enough to carry this to a lingering, slightly warming finish. Drinking well now, ideally with lamb.Tasted: 29 December 2020Tasted by: Treve RingPrices: BC 41.00 BCLS AB 46.00 select private retailers Producer: Grant Burge WinesDistributors: Southern Glazer's Wine and Spirits of Canada
