I tasted this recently with my wine group. It's sweetly spiced, with flavors of raspberry and small, dark berries, all in a mellow blend. If you like the Chateauneuf-de-pape blends, but want bigger flavor, drink this. The Spanish petit basque sheep's cheese went the best with this wine. For a main dish food pairing, this wine will go best with red meat, any style.

Winemaker's Notes:

The Barossa Valley has a long history as one of Australia's premium wine regions for growing Mourvédre, Grenache and Shiraz. These Southern France varietals offer a provenance of synergy with each component making a contribution to the complexity of the wine. Mourvèdre, more commonly known in Australia as Mataro, is the dominant variety in this Hand Picked blend. It provides sturdy and robust characters, balanced by the perfume of Grenache and the spice of Shiraz. Firm yet silky, with power and length on the palate, a complex wine with supreme elegance. To maximise fruit flavor, the three varieties - 60% Mourvèdre, 25% Grenache and 15% Shiraz - were fermented as separate parcels in open top stainless steel fermenters using the Yalumba designed cap plunger. Natural or wild yeasts, present on the grape skins, completed sugar fermentation building a wine with greater complexity and character. Deep plum in colour, the Yalumba Hand Picked Mourvèdre Grenache Shiraz 2002 offers aromas of cherries, licorice and violets, with hints of ripe fruit. The concentrated palate is firm, Cellaring A wine to enjoy now yet silky with good structure and plenty of well-defined tannins, or to cellar offering power and length.
