Massena The Moonlight Run 2016
The blueberry lift of Greenock Shiraz is unmistakable amongst the aromatic Mataro fennel frond, game and savoury backbone. The mixed ground pepper spice plays off between white and spicy Grenache aromatics and the roasted black pepper and green peppercorn mix that Mataro brings.
A mix of muscavardo sugar sweet and savoury molasses character is balanced by a roasted coffee tannin that runs through the core of the palate.
With so much going on it needs no accompaniment and has the spine to reward people who like to put aside a bottle or two for a later date.
