Murray Street 'Black Label' Shiraz Grenache Mataro 2015

Special Price $22.00 Regular Price $25.00
This is a red and blue fruited beauty. Richness from the Shiraz is complexed by strawberries and a hint of redcurrant from the Grenache and a little brooding brambliness from the Mataro. There is a lovely interplay between sweet fruit and savoury characters and fine tannins on the finish.

Murray Street Vineyards currently farm around 220 acres at Gomersal (130 acres) and Greenock (90 acres). These plantings comprise Grenache that dates as far back as the 1940’s and Shiraz from the 1960’s. The vast majority of fruit that finds its way into MSV bottlings is estate grown with very small parcels of fruit from other growers in the region. This fruit is bought with the intention of helping Murray Street workout if they ‘need’ to buy other vineyards in the region. Murray Street have an amazing track record on the accolade front, picking up “Most Successful Australian Exhibitor” at the Decanter World Wine Awards and Barossa Winery of the Year at the Melbourne International Wine & Spirits Competition. Never willing to rest on previous achievements, they have continued to invest significantly more money into improving their existing vineyards. The Murray Street Vineyards philosophy is “know the land and there’s only one way to do things, celebrate the DNA from dirt to fruit, preserve that in bottle and then get better at what we do”
