The Riverland region wraps around the Murray Darling river, basking in the hot South Australia sun. The Mediterranean climate and long sunny days make for vibrant fully ripened grapes. The winding river provides relief from the sometimes-intense heat, vital access to water for irrigation, and contributes to the region's fertile soils. Australian Grenache and Shiraz combine with California Tannat to make this plush, charismatic blend. Grenache provides notes of raspberry and spice. Tannat brings gripping tannins and a whisper of licorice, while Shiraz imparts black plum and peppercorn. This wine layers delicious dark fruit and red berry with complex notes of vanilla, peppery spice, and subtle smoke completed by racy acidity, big tannins and a lengthy finish.
