Powell & Son Riverside Grenache, Mataro, Shiraz 2020, Barossa, Australia

Powell & Son wines are sourced from various vineyard sites throughout the Barossa and Eden Valleys. Callum and Dave Powell employ traditional, minimalist winemaking techniques to produce a wine that speaks of the place that it was grown. Their inspiration for winemaking having its roots in France’s Rhone Valley, Powell & Son red wines are made from the classic Rhone varietals: Shiraz, Grenache and Mataro and its whites: Roussanne, Marsanne as well as Eden Valley Riesling. All varieties from the Riverside vineyard are vinified separately, being fermented in concrete vats and pumped over. Post fermentation half of the Grenache component is matured in stainless steel and the Mataro and Shiraz is matured in 4,500 French oak Foudre for 15 months prior to bottling without fining or filtration. 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.
