Three Peos Estate wines landed on the doorstep. A new label to me, no information came with them. No RRP, no specs. As per the website: Manjimup has been home to the Macedonian-born Peos family for more than 80 years. With viticulture in their historical veins, brothers Vic, John, Kon and Chris banded together in 1996 to create their dream vineyard as a legacy to their late father, Jim Peos, and late grandfather, P.Y. Peos. The Four Kings range is named after the four Peos brothers.
A fair drink which will partner food well. I'm thinking pizza and pasta dishes. Scents of cracked pepper, roasted meat, dark cherry and dried flowers. Varietal undergrowth and earthiness are there but the fruit skirts the mid-palate which seems to go MIA. Tight citrus-like acidity frames the mouth and lingers long with some pan juices. That acid just won't release its grip though...
Drink now to three years.
