2019 Kaleidoscope Horizons

2019  Kaleidoscope Horizons

Grenache Graciano Tempranillo


Inspired by the textural wines of the Rioja region in the north of Spain, this is a wine with heart. 

Not dissimilar to the Mediterranean landscape that these grapes are native to, the windswept coastal vineyards here in McLaren Vale produce fruit of the highest quality, all with defined personality. These vibrant personalities are skilfully melded together by our winemakers to bring out the best in each, creating a multifaceted kaleidoscope of aromatics and flavours. 

In this new release, decadent notes of kirsch-soaked red cherries and spicy cola float over a robust undercurrent of cigar box and earthy forest floor. As you sip, darker fruit flavours of blackcurrant and dewy forest berries appear, balanced with dusty tannins and crisp apple-like acidity. This is a captivating wine that draws you in and makes it impossible not to go back for more.

Pair this with pancetta wrapped quail and roasted red grapes.

Full colour with tinges of tile-red and purple in the rim. The bouquet is earthy, rocky, almost metallic and red-fruited as well. The wine is robust and rustic, with chewy tannins and plenty of heft. A solid, concentrated red with lots of character that would reward cellaring. 91 points.

Drawing on the influence of parts of the Spanish Basque and Rioja in particular, this is full, thirst-slaking and immaculately put together. It. does not aspire to what its Mosaic of Dreams sibling is not. Grenache, the driver (55%) with the spicy and uber-savoury graciano (26%), shot gun. Otherwise, tempranillo. A bit sweet of fruit, but the cracked pepper and sour cherry elements confer a welcome spice and an amaro bitterness and savouriness. The tannins across the cheeks and tongue, lithe and long-limbed. Again, I'd like some more extraction to mitigate the sweetness. But very good, all the same. 95 points.
