Pikes Los Companeros Shiraz/Tempranillo 2018

SKU: 3103002125238627Categories: ,


No new oak here, so the fruit really sings. 2018 was an extremely good red vintage for Clare, slightly warmer than average, but vineyards by and large achieved a great balance of fruit and acid. Blend: 80% Shiraz, 20% Tempranillo Here’s a steal: Plump tempranillo adds fruit to the spicy black-pepper notes of shiraz, giving this wine the feel of a ripe Rioja. There’s a lovely umami gloss to the tannins, taking it to Logro¤o for a plate of wild mushrooms saut ed with garlic, or to Adelaide for seared tuna over a salad of avocado, arugula and orange slices.
