(2011 Vintage) The blend of three classic Barossa red varieties (Shiraz, Grenache and Mourvèdre) and one new one (Tempranillo), creates a multi-dimensional wine with beautiful aromas of dark plum, chocolate, and savory black olive while the palate is a soft mouthful of forest fruits with mild bramble undertones.
WS 90, JH 90 Layers is a unique blend that delivers a highly enjoyable journey of discovery for the senses in each and every glass. Shiraz delivers fruit depth and structure, combining beautifully with the aromatics and spiciness of Grenache, Mourvedre adds wild earthy notes to the blend and melds together with the firm, savory character of Tempranillo, to surround and soften the palate of this multi-dimensional wine. This wine perfectly complements a wide variety of game, Mediterranean influenced dishes and spicy Indian curries
Supple, velvety and generous with its red berry, cherry and cream flavors, mingling on the long and easy going finish. Shiraz, Tempranillo, Mourvèdre, Grenache and Counoise. Drink now through 2016. Score: 90 (Harvey Steiman, winespectator.com, July 31, 2012)
