This savory red wine is medium-bodied by Australian standards. It spends 12 months in older oak, with the Grenache contributing soft fruit aromas, the Shiraz adding peppery spice, and the Mourvèdre giving a nice edge to the tannins.

Winemaker's Notes:

The “Avignon” is a style of red wine composed of Grenache, Shiraz, Mataro (Mourvedre). The Grenache and Mataro vines are 70 years old and the Shiraz comes from vineyards 40 and 105 year’s old. It is a style that is designed to be savoury and compliment food. Color: Garnet with a bight youthful edge. Nose: Plum, plum skin, musk, lipstick and cherry. Will fill out substantially over time. Palate: Nice mineral acidity on entry. The palate expands, to offer nice, early ripened plum. The palate has good length that is well knitted to finish by the acidity. At the moment the wine is young at dis-jointed, in time it will become a wine similar to the 2002. Sinewy and more like a marathon runner, than 100 metre sprinter. The most pure Avignon to date. Almost a waste to drink it and develop over the next 10 years.
