The spice, red berries and flesh of (the Spanish grape...) Tempranillo. The lively cherry and floral aroma, and sinewy structure of (from Italy...) Sangiovese. The richness of a tiny dash of (quintessentially Australian...) Shiraz.
Complex...? Not really - this wine is all about being relatively straightforward, so classic notions of complexity are not relevant here. But more interesting and complete because of the care we take when blending?
The Pindarie TSS is proudly medium-bodied, lively and lovely. It’s bright red in colour; bright and perfumed on the nose, and bright yet rewarding on the palate. This year the (perhaps the best we have ever grown) Sangio is to the fore, but it’s a wine that would be much less satisfying without the three varieties together.
Medium bodied and generous but with grip. Terrific drinking all year round, especially with a platter of Barossa mettwurst, arancini, Manchego cheese and crocchetta.
