Maker and Three Red 2015

Tasting Notes

Crimson Red.  Lifted cherry and dark berry fruits with hints of mocha and spice.  Rutherglen Shiraz, the predominant variety in this wine provides ripe red berry fruit flavours and white pepper.  The Durif provides the backbone, while the Tempranillo adds a touch of finesse with aromatic notes of violets, plums and blackberry.

Winemaking

Fruit was harvested at optimal maturity and fermented on skins for 7 to 10 days. A small parcel was fermented in French and American oak puncheons for 6 to 9 months before blending.

Cellaring

Ready drinking on release but will easily cellar for 2-3 years. A versatile wine to enjoy with fuller flavoured dishes such as tapas, chargrilled meats or wood fired pizza.

Created by Col and his daughters Jane, Susie and Jules this wine highlights the hallmark reds of Rutherglen.  When the Maker and Three come together casually this is their ‘go to’ red wine!
