Pepperilly Purple Patch GMS 2010

Loved the generosity of this wine. Bright and vibrant on entry, but to call it 'fruity' may lead some to think it simple. There's a fullness of flavour to it, excellent flow, tannins are well integrated and form a neat 1-2 with the fleshy and generous palate.

Aromatically it offers savoury nuances, hints of pan juices with earth and ironstone elements backed up with a little licorice. This is very good drinking, made all the more compelling at its price point. Don't see too much Mataro out West, or indeed the Southern Rhone influenced blend. 91 - Very Good
