2012 Pikes Los Campaneros Shiraz Tempranillo

Estate: Pikes Wines

Region: Clare Valley, Mount Lofty Ranges, South Australia, Australia


Tasting Note:June 18, 2016

Dark ruby red. Initial savory attack, with a strong follow through of thick blueberries. Mint undertones on the nose with some slight floral notes. Palate was coated with blueberries and dark chocolate. Some light eucalyptus notes on day two. Moderate tannins (6.5/10) and medium bodied. Slight greenery added to the finish and some spiciness. Long and lingering finish, slight heat lingering.

This is Pike Wines' inaugural bottling of a very interesting blend of 75% Shiraz and 25% Tempranillo.
