Product Description

"A blend of Shiraz 70% and Grenache 30%, the 2011 Schnell Shiraz Grenache is medium garnet color and displays aromas of warm red currants, black raspberries and black pepper alongside hints of black tea, earth and mesquite. Medium-bodied with just enough youthful berry and pepper flavors, it has a lively backbone of acid, low to medium levels of rounded tannins and a medium to long finish. Drink it now to 2016."

"Light to medium red-purple; the French and American oak in which the wine was matured outweighs the red fruits. Best drink sooner than later."

REVIEWS ON SOME PREVIOUS VINTAGES

Magpie Estate The Schnell Shiraz Grenache 2010
Deep crimson red. From the excellent 2010 vintage this is the best Schnell we have seen since 2005. A higher proportion of Shiraz in the 2010 - 80%. Very deep spice with cinnamon, nutmeg and liquorice with darker fruits than usual showing the depth of the vintage. Sweet dark fruits then a lovely juiciness and vibrancy. Ripe red and purple berries and anise spice follow. Soft grainy tannins. Medium but thickly textured. Great concentration for the price here. This wine is always good value but this is extraordinary.


"Solid crimson-purple; there is an abundance of blackberry, cherry and plum fruit, with a swathe of French and American oak around that fruit, the tannins ripe. Will richly repay a few years more in bottle."
