Yalumba Mourvedre Blend Barossa Mourvedre-Grenache-Shiraz Hand-Picked 2006

Winemaker's Notes:

This wine is medium depth crimson in colour with a nose of sweet and silken dark cherries and raspberry aromas followed by a very rustic touch of smoke leather and raisins. The palate suggests a generous supple wine with malty chocolatey flavours merging with sweet black cherry fruits finishing with fine tannins.

The Yalumba Wine Company:

Yalumba was founded in 1849 by Samuel Smith, British migrant and English brewer, who had brought his family to Angaston seeking a new life. After purchasing a 30-acre parcel of land just beyond the southern-eastern boundary of Angaston, Smith and his son began planting the first vines by moonlight. Samuel named his patch "Yalumba" – aboriginal for "all the land around". Six generations and more than 150 years later Yalumba, Australia's oldest family owned winery, has grown in size and stature, embodying all that has made the Australian wine success story the envy of winemakers the world over. Yalumba wines have a style all of their own and each have been influenced by a diverse range of elements. Elements Yalumba likes to call 'the controllables', such as the Yalumba Vine Nursery and on-site cooperage – as well as other factors that cannot be emulated by any other winery. Yalumba’s history and tradition combined with a reputation for innovation.

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.
