Pindarie Wines

2016 T.S.S. Tempranillo/Sangiovese/Shiraz

2016 T.S.S. Tempranillo/Sangiovese/Shiraz

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?

ABSOLUTELY!

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.

Vineyard Notes
Produced entirely from vines grown at Pindarie: the Tempranillo on shallow rocky limestone soil to enhance concentration; the Sangiovese on an easterly facing slope consisting of red brown earth and limestone. We have several blocks of Shiraz; the small proportion included in this wine was a barrel selected from our stack of those made from our ‘short rows’, just to the south of the Cellar Door.
Winemaker Notes
Obviously, careful blending is at core of this wine, but as always, we harvested each component separately. 2016 produced a wine of intense perfume without astringency. We then vinify and mature every variety separately, using only old French oak barrels to ensure harmony of tannin structure without over oak presence.
