Pikes Clare Valley 'Los Companeros' Shiraz Tempranillo 2018
|Region||Australia, South Australia, Clare Valley|
"Clear and deep ruby in appearance, Los Companeros greets the nose with seductive blueberry fruit framed by suggestions of chocolate, mint, earth, and spice. On the palate, this wine is rich and dense yet approachable. The concentrated dark fruit and chocolate are tempered nicely by fine, silky tannins and balanced acidity. On the finish, the wine shows harmony among its structural components and suggests a comfortable cellaring period of three to five years. It may prove a challenge to find a better partner for a nice rib-eye on the barbecue."
