Marananga Dam-Old Vine GMS 2008
Barossa Valley, Australia, Marks & Spencer
M&S deserve big kudos for getting David Powell of Torbreck fame top make this Grenache, Mourvedre, Syrah blend for them.
This is as good a red wine as I have tried this year and spent ages just smelling it.
It’s true Auzzie big bold but is perfectly weighted & so nuanced.
Verdict: A class act from first sip to the last drop. 9/10
Eye-Dark Forest Purple
Nose- Black liquorice, raspberry gummies, melted milk choc, cayenne pepper, gingerbread, turkish delight 7 purple basil
Mouth- Tart fruit, venison jus, savoury rosemary, rabid balckberries, white spice, smoky blackcurrant & great acidity
Food:Cajun steak, game pie or all on it’s own
