Layers Barossa Red, 2019
A vibrant red blend with a burst of dark cherry and spice flavours leading to a softly textured finish. Shiraz gives fruit depth and structure, while the Tempranillo is firm and savoury. Mataro (aka Mourvèdre) brings a wild earthiness, and all are bound together by the aromatic and spicy nature of Grenache which softens the palate.
