Magpie Estate The Mixed Thing 2012

An interesting mix of the lesser known varieties grown in the Barossa. A medley of Cinsault, Sangiovese, Dolcetto, Tannat and Ruby Cabernet. The quantities are unknown nor do I care too much simply because this is just a great little drop.

Why? I get a sense my tongue is a target at the rifle range with shots of flavour hitting randomly all over yet it settles to a smooth and long finish. So much going on and I like it.

Dark cherries, and there are lots of them! Plums, cranberry as well as some blueberries.

A wine not to think too much about. Just to rip the cap off and enjoy it with friends. This certainly wouldn't be out of place at a Sunday barbeque. A bargain too at $20.

The back label suggests can be served with a slight chill. I gave this a shot...yum!
