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