2017 Chapel Hill Shiraz Mourvèdre

The Two Ronnies, Simon & Garfunkel, Hawke & Keating, Hamish & Andy.  Famous couples that have gotten on so well together they have stuck in the minds and hearts of many over the years.  Okay, maybe there’s some doubt about a couple of those ‘couples’ but they are always remembered as famous or infamous.

Here is a couple that get on even better than Hugh Jackman and Debra Furness, and that’s saying something.

Shiraz and Mourvèdre (also known as Mataro and Monastrell) have been co-fermented to produce a very moreish wine indeed.  It’s a pretty picture in the glass.  Red/purple mainly but quite deep in the core of it.  Smells pretty too.  Blackcurrants, blueberries with a dash of herbs.  On the palate, bright as a button, plums with aplomb, benign blueberries, cheeky cherries and full of fun, frivolity and finesse.  So easy to enjoy and relax with but unfortunately sold out.  If you can find it in retail land, fill your basket or trolley.  They won’t be surprised at the checkout!
