Powerhouse red

Utopos Mataro Shiraz Grenache 2019, Barossa Valley, AUD $70

Ink-black core to a deeply-tinted purple rim. Mulberry, wood oil and cured meat aromas. A big powerhouse of a wine. There’s deep and rich concentration of black fruits, Christmas cake spices and blood sausage savoury elements. Just when it feels like it may lose its way, an iron fist of fine, grainy tannins brings order to the exuberance. Not for the faint of heart and would be best served with a substantial joint of roast meat. (Cork)
