Reviews and Ratings

Jacqueline Cochrane rated this wine as 94/100
Jane Staples - Certified Sommelier rated this wine as 92/100 with the following review:

Love this Grenache-Shiraz-Mourvedre blend from Barossa Valley, South Australia! Perfumed nose shows fresh fruit from the Grenache and floral violet notes. The juicy palate is fruity and delicious, with spicy elements from the Shiraz. Full-bodied and dry with a long spicy finish. Would definitely buy this again. My fav red at Savour Australia.
Tasted May 2016
Craig Kuziemsky rated this wine as 91/100 with the following review:

Floral, strawberry and cherry notes with red fruit and herb flavors lingering on the palate. The finish is very soft and lingering. Pair with lamb or pork, or even duck.
Matt Steeves - Certified Sommelier rated this wine as 90/100 with the following review:

Incredibly smooth and refined with plum, dark fruits, blackberry, mocha and dark chocolate on the nose and palate. Enjoy this silky smooth blend with marinated grilled hanger steak with a port reduction. Tasted May 2016. 90+ points. Matt Steeves - www.quercusvino.ca
Terry Jeans - Certified S rated this wine as 90/100 with the following review:

Lots of dark ripe fruit on the nose, with some smoke and vanilla. An almost full-bodied wine with some firm tannins and a good dose of acidity. A nice blend for Australia that is not overdone. Perfect with bison burgers on the bbq.
Wineboy rated this wine as 89/100 with the following review:

Elevated candied floral nose from the Grenache, medium weight berry fruit from the Shiraz, but not seeing any earthy contributions from the Mourvedre. Smooth and lingering with a touch of warmth all indicate Grenache dominates the blend. Medium weight of flavours with some heavier mouthfeel from the 14%.
Douglas McMillan rated this wine as 89/100 with the following review:

Plum, chocolate, violets, cedar, and dried herbs make up the aroma. The taste is Plum, strawberry, and tart cherry. A very even, balanced wine with medium high acidity, a touch of tannins. Pair with barbecued pork or lamb.
Nick Onischuk - Accredited Sommelier rated this wine as 88/100 with the following review:

The Barossa Valley Estate Grenache Shiraz Mouvedre 2014 is a very nice blend. On the nose and palate, this wine features floral, cherry, red berry fruit, and vanilla. This medium to full bodied wine is worth a try! November 29, 2015 (88/100)
Jennifer Havers - WSET Level 3 rated this wine as 87/100 with the following review:

Aromas include cherry and strawberry and a bit of a floral note. Fruit forward on the palate. Medium body and some tannin. Pair with pork dishes.
Sean O'Regan - Certified Sommelier rated this wine as 87/100 with the following review:

Medium ruby, red berry and spice notes dominate the nose. Medium bodied, somewhat spicy red fruit, vanilla and toasty oak flavors are carried by juicy acidity and framed by chalky tannins. Try with tourtiere.
Tasted November 2015
Trevor Sabourin - Certified Sommelier rated this wine as 86/100 with the following review:

Raspberry, blueberry, prune, espresso, tar, cocoa, and cigar box on the nose. Medium full bodied, and a bit on the boozy side, with medium acids and tannins.
Emilie Ryan rated this wine as 81/100 with the following review:

An earthy, old-world-style blend.

Appearance: medium red, no hint of orange
Nose: Meat, cheese, flowers.
Taste: pretty strong cedar, herbs, flowers, earth. Should definitely be enjoyed with food; this is not a sipping wine.
Finish: cedar, earth, flowers, long finish.
Overall impression: surprisingly old-world style blend, not very fruit-based, much more terroir-based.

Value: 2 out of 5
