Tahbilk  Grenache Shiraz MourvedreLiving in Brisbane Australian, I often have to fly to places for fun or work.  Well on a recent trip through the airport, I decided to stop at the Wine Selectors store and have a chat with a couple of the guys behind the counter.

Getting talked into try a few of the wine on offer, I made a impulse decision to purchase a mixed dozen of Red.  On ordering it, it only took 5 days to arrive, it was a bit like Christmas when it arrived.

The first one out of the box, was the 2014 Tahbilk Grenache Shiraz Mourvedre, and man was it an awesome drop.  Its been a long time since I had a red that was complex in its tasting, it went down a treat on a Thursday night.

From The Bottle

2014 – Grenache Shiraz Mourvedre – We can trace our history with the varietals that make up this wine back to 1860 and estate Shiraz vines that still survive today.  In more recent times these elder statesmen plantings have been joined by Grenache and Mourvedre.  The blending of the three has resulted in a savory, fleshy and multi layered wine, offering dark berry and plum fruits, some spicy, gamey notes and finely textured tannins.
