Great wines reflect their place of origin, and speak of the grape variety from which they are made. To achieve this goal Coates Wines has a no compromise approach to craft wines that blend the best in Australian and European winemaking styles, to bridge the gap between the fruit-driven Australian style and the savoury, complex wines of Old World Europe. The vineyards used to make the wines that bear the Coates label express purity of flavour that allow regional and varietal characters to be clearly articulated.
The classic Southern Rhone Valley blend of Grenache, Syrah and Mourvèdre has always been a favourite in the Coates household. The fruit has been sourced from three vineyards; Grenache from Blewitt Springs with Syrah and Mourvèdre from two sites in Willunga.
Light crimson in colour, the vibrant cherry and raspberry fruits are supported by game, white pepper and fresh herb notes. The palate shows taut structure with an array of light forest fruits intertwined with perfume, undergrowth and subtle oak. Drink now to 2025, 180 cases made.
