    Conte Estate The Gondola Grenache Shiraz, McLaren Vale - SA

    This wine has deep, intense purple colours, with a bouquet that exhibits earthy black currant/blackberry characters, as well as subtle toasted oak scents derived from the wood maturation.

    The palate is a rich amalgam of fruit and other flavours, ranging from mulberry and blackberry through to liquorice and black pepper and all of these in a deep, smooth and mouth-filling style. The sweet fruit flavours are long lasting and end off with a soft yet lingering tannin finish. This is a most appealing dry red wine and a fine example of what can be achieved from two varieties that seem especially suited to the local conditions.
