Gemtree Vineyards Shiraz Mclaren Vale Bloodstone 2006
Grenache 60% Best of Southern Rhone Tempranillo 20% .Best of Rioja Shiraz 20% Best of Australia Our 4th release of this style and we are now convinced that the marriage of these 3 varieties was no fluke. Grenache provides the aromatics and sweetness of flavour, the tempranillo gives the funk and tannin profile and the shiraz chimes in with the depth and class which cements this wine as a Gemtree favourite. The 2006 Cadenzia conjures up images of the southern Rhone and Rioja. Mike's Comment: 'The best Cadenzia yet!!!!'Tasting NotesColour Bright purple.Nose Cherry compote, raspberry, spice, chorizo sausage.Palate Classic red cherry spice, rich and very powerful front palate sweetness with wonderful flesh and texture. The mid palate is awash with berry fruits and fine grain chalky tannins which are only achieved from wines with superb texture. Fantastic structure for such a rich wine!Cellaring now 2015.
