Breaking Ground Shiraz Mourvedre

95 points Gold 

Grown from a 6 acre lock of interplanted shiraz and mouvedre on red volanic soil where shiraz accounts for 85% of the vines. Whole-berry fermented, two weeks on skins and matured for 18 months in French barriques (10% new). It should be - and it is - a natural blend for the late ripening mourvedre. This is a very well made wine with perfect ripeness - not easy especially with a field blend.
