Angove AMV-X Tempranillo Mataro Grenache Graciano 2016


The labels in this new AMV-X range are certainly eye catching. This design is said to represent the hued spring sunsets over the gulf of St Vincent.

Fruit driven, there's plenty of satisfaction here. An interesting blend, it's made up of 38/33/22/7 respectively. Bright and juicy, red fruits aplenty. A whiff of purple flowers, red berries and peppery spice get things up and running. Some meaty characters lurk but the fruit remains king. Plump tannins add to a moreish factor.

To some this up in a word, sessional. An extra point for being 'deliciously smashable' as per the back label.

Drink now to three years.
