Calabria, Saint Petri Grenache/Shiraz/Mataro 2018

The Riverina-based Calabria family has been quite expansionist of late, buying McWilliam’s in 2021 and its Barossa vineyards some years earlier. This lovely wine has just medium depth of colour but a charming bouquet of savoury red fruits, mixed spices, ironstone and other mineral hints. It’s smooth and lush in the mid-palate, fruit-sweet at the core and individualistic, the finish long-lingering.
