2017 Peacock's Fan Barossa Grenache Shiraz Mataro
Peacock’s Fan is an independently owned and operated winery with a fierce commitment to making the best wines we can from family vineyards. We don’t take ourselves as seriously as we take our wines, but agree with Elena, all you need to know about wine is, the best wine is the wine you like.
Generous black plums, mulberry and dark cherry open with hints of clove and Turkish delight. Flavoursome plum, cinnamon, earth and Mettwurst emerge with subtle dried herb and cedary notes along with a dark dry chocolate mouth feel. Begins with sweet fruit then tightens up with fine fruit and oak tannin. Great long, fine tannins and sweet spice cuts through any hints of jamminess. Youthful austerity as you would expect from classic Barossa Grenache but there is also plenty of fineness to the tannin and dark chocolate nuances in the lengthy finish due to its partnering with Shiraz and a smidge of Mataro for its earthy tones.
