2016 Castelli Estate 'Uvaggio' Great Southern GMS
This is the pick of the Aussie Rhone reds in stock. Bush vine Grenache and Mourvedre were harvested by hand at optimum ripeness; the Shiraz was machine harvested at night to preserve the spiciness of the variety. All parcels were vinified in small open ferments with the Grenache and Mourvedre having ~40% whole bunch inclusion for aromatic lift.
Aromas of licorice straps and cherry cola are followed by a wine of decent depth and body. Flavours of dark plum and cherry, with a mocha like finish.
