"Blended of 60% Grenache, 20% Shiraz and 20% Mataro, the 2015 Grenache Shiraz Mataro displays a medium garnet-purple color and nose of baked cherries, raspberry preserves and warm plums with a smoky/chargrill undercurrent and savory touch of yeast extract. Full-bodied with concentrated flavors in the mouth, it has a solid backbone of firm, ripe tannins and just enough freshness, finishing long and savory."


 RobertParker.com, Lisa Perotti-Brown, March 2017


"It’s mostly grenache with the remainder equal parts shiraz and mataro, old (117-years) and young vines. The wine hangs out in 2500 litre foudre. Large format oak a motif for Powell & Sons, though vineyards seem to be the real calling cards. And a shift to organic farming. Potent conversations.


 

Rich perfume of dark berries, ripe plums, tobacco, flint and undergrowth. It’s part way between flirty fragrance and guttural grunt. Smooth and rich to taste but set to medium weight. Sweet-and-ripe berry and plummy flavours, a touch of espresso to supple tannins, good length of flavour, some molten dark chocolate character way down the long, sticky finish. Even, slippery, moreish kind of red."


 

Mike Bennie, Wine Front, July 2018


 

The Barossa Valley Grenache Shiraz Mataro combines all three of the great Rhone red varieties, harmonising the unique attributes of each variety into a complete wine. The blend is predominantly Grenache (approximately two thirds – vintage dependent) from mature Barossa Valley Grenache bush vines, with Shiraz and Mataro making up the balance. The parcels are matured for 15 months in 2,300 litre French oak foudres prior to blending and bottling. As the dominant component, Grenache offers powerful aromas of red fruits, kirsch and black cherries, complemented by mincemeat, leather, game and heavy spices from the Shiraz and Mataro influences.


“The Barossa Valley Grenache Shiraz Mataro is intense in its perfumed aromas of cherry liqueur and blackberry compote, with notes of spice and anise. The palate is voluptuous and supple, with the Grenache component shining through. Flavours of dark fruits predominate with velvety tannins providing a backbone to carry the flavours through to the finish.”
