Nose: Generous dry spice notes of pimento, fresh bay leaves and dusty cocoa are perfectly balanced with pretty aromas of violets, mulberries and Turkish dried figs

Palate: Well-integrated tannins create a stage for the red plum and ripe cherry flavours to dance across the palate. In this complex and layered wine, vibrant fruit and fragrant spice find excellent balance

Food Pairing:  Savour this with a meal that incorporates elements of both sweet and savoury, such as a Middle Eastern spiced lamb, on hummus, bejewelled with deep pink pomegranate seeds

About the wine: Graciano is prized for its acidity, structure and intense aromatics. Our vines yield few bunches, but the fruit is exquisite. It is as at home here in McLaren Vale as it is in its native soils of Rioja; thriving in our arid landscape

Country: McLaren Vale, Australia

Grape Variety: Graciano

ABV: 14%

“Indigo-purple colour in the glass. Lovely lifted violets and mocha with oak-spice and red licorice. It’s slinky and finely-structured, albeit with regional richness. Dark cherries and skin-spice. Classy and long.”
