The Wishbone, Shiraz-Grenache, Barossa ValleyRegular price €21.00
Just the job. Lovely and ripe, medium to full bodied with juicy plum and raspberry on the palate also, with black cherry, spice and a lick of creamy oak. It’s a generous, juicy mouthful with bags of fruit and spice and a hint of tea. There's good acidity too, keeping it fresh and vibrant.
Magpie Estate is a joint venture, which began in 1993, between famous Barossa winemaker Rolf Binder and English wine merchant Noel Young. Both Rolf and Noel have a passion for Rhone varietals. The fruit comes from fifteen long-favoured premium sites, drawing on Rolf’s deep understanding of the Barossa.
Noel then sneaks out into the night in a rubber catsuit and steals all the best fruit from these growers. The labels celebrate a superstitious theme, saluting the magpie, and we count ourselves lucky indeed to have them aboard.
Bottled after eleven months in oak.
Great with roast beef or lamb, as well as grilled meats and BBQs.
