The aim of the East of Alice blend is to produce a medium bodied red wine that is both fruity and savoury such that it makes the palate salivate and have the taster immediately thinking of food.
To achieve this we have used a combination of varieties that are medium to full bodied in nature and have a savoury influence in their flavour profile.
For some fun we suggest you try a glass of this wine by itself and then a second with some Kalamata olives or prosciutto.
AROMA: A complex aroma displaying raspberry, cranberry, strawberry and black olive with hints of dried herbs, spice, pomegranate and eucalypt.
PALATE: A medium-bodied wine displaying fruit sweetness but with a savoury edge that makes one salivate and crave food. The flavours are of cherry, plum skin, tapenade and roasted red peppers with notes of dark chocolate, aniseed, coffee and cured meats. The tannins are noticeable and slightly drying, which only adds to the desire for food. A wine well matched with tapas.
VARIETY:46% Graciano, 29% Grenache, 23% Shiraz and 2% Sangiovese
