The Rude Mechanicals 'Three Monkeys' by Magpie Estate
We were asked to make this style of wine by one of our importers under their series of 'Rude Mechanical' wines. A bright, juicy style of GSM. 70% Grenache, 20% Shiraz, 10% Mataro. From several vineyards around the Barossa. We utilised several different parcels- bright juicy wild yeast Grenache alongside other lots aged in old and new oak. It's deliberately made to be enjoyable young- lots of black cherry fruit with lots of spice and crunchy tannins. Good weight- you can see it's mainly Grenache, but the other grapes give it an almost floral vibrancy to it. Would make a great pizza wine!!
