2012 The Call Bag, Mourvedre Grenache Barossa Valley Magpie Estate
This could easily be called our ‘Estate Red’ as it was the first wine we made in 1993 it’s our answer to good Cotes du Rhone Villages, although this is clearly a Barossan wine.
Roughly 60% Mourvedre, 40% Grenache. Lovely fruitcake and spice nose, black cherry, clove, and cinnamon, with a touch of oak. Really bright and juicy, mulled wine spices alongside the black cherry and plum fruit, a touch of creamy oak and ripe tannins.
We like this wine with some age when it becomes really soft and supple.
