About The Wine
July 2017 - A definitive New World red with its sleek mouthfeel and copious amounts of dark, brambly fruit, the 2015 Mischief Maker is a blend of 79% Shiraz and 21% Mourvedre, respectively. The nose offers up notions of ripe black cherry and dark plums with clove, a hint of vanilla and a light brushing of herbs aromatically. Medium fuller bodied the fruit is quite expressive in the palate, with lively cherry and wild berry flavours accentuated with a touch of spice on the back end. The tannins are supple and ripe giving this a smooth, almost silky texture while the fruit has good lift and vibrancy giving a juicy quality to the wine. Showing well right out the gate this should continue to drink well over the next 2-3 years.
