A slightly different take on the typical Rhone blend the Powell & Son Grenache Mataro Shiraz offers notes of black raspberries, kirsch and mulberries layered with spicy notes. The palate is soft, richly fruited and delivers plenty of pure, uncomplicated flavors with great harmony. A great wine on it's own or with gamey dishes.
