Margan 2016 Shiraz Mourvedre
The 2017 vintage was hot and dry and produced outstanding quality fruit from all varieties. The grapes were picked together from the same block and co-fermented under cool conditions using cultured aromatic yeast. After fermentation the wine was placed in new and used French oak barriques where it matured for 20 months prior to bottling. The intense tannins of the Mourvedre help lift the spicy notes of the Shiraz in the wine to provide a medium - full bodied structure accentuated coupled with vanillin notes from the oak.
Savoury characters from the Shiraz and perfumed notes from the Mourvedre combine with integrated tannins to produce a medium -full bodied, balanced wine.
Pair with braised meats or charcoal grilled steak.
