DESCRIPTION
  • Los Companeros, or "The Companions," is all about the relationship between the two varietals of which it composed.  Los Companeros is a blend of 80% Shiraz with 20% Tempranillo sourced from the seventy-five hectares of vineyard planted across the Polish Hill River Estate. The rich softness of the Shiraz component is complimented perfectly by the somewhat rustic tannins of the Tempranillo.

  • WINEMAKER'S NOTES

    TASTING NOTES

    Lifted, spiced cherry and blueberry fruit aromas with some choc/mint notes, overlay a gentle earthiness adding another dimension. The French oak is very much in the background not playing a major role here. The palate is bright, juicy and very approachable, with the blueberry and chocolate flavours nicely tempered by some savoury tannins and well-balanced acidity. Quite long and satisfying.

  • REVIEWS

    'It is brightly expressed on the nose showing blackberry, raspberry, smoked game, thyme and cedar characters. The palate is succulent and plump, displaying vibrant fruit flavours backed by seductive spicy nuances, leading to a persistent silky finish. The wine is generously fruited and refreshing.'

    'Aromas of blackberry compote, blueberries and crushed flower, leading to a juicy, easygoing palate with flavors of red berries and blueberries. A succulent, zippy feel at the finish. Drink young.'
