Pikes Clare Valley "Los Companeros" 2018 Shiraz/Tempranillo

$ 16.99 $ 24.99

No new oak here, so the fruit really sings. 2018 was an extremely good red vintage for Clare, slightly warmer than average, but vineyards by and large achieved a great balance of fruit and acid.

Blend: 80% Shiraz, 20% Tempranillo

Here’s a steal: Plump tempranillo adds fruit to the spicy black-pepper notes of shiraz, giving this wine the feel of a ripe Rioja. There’s a lovely umami gloss to the tannins, taking it to Logroño for a plate of wild mushrooms sautéed with garlic, or to Adelaide for seared tuna over a salad of avocado, arugula and orange slices.
