The 2017 Abednego allows all three varieties to shine - spice and earthy characters from the Grenache, powerful yet elegant tannin structure and mid palate weight from the Shiraz, and a vibrancy and fruit richness from the Mourvèdre. Deep dark crimson with ruby red hue. Intense nose of black pepper, raspberry and cranberry with layers of tobacco leaf and orange peel creating a complex bouquet. Elegance and finesse in the glass with strong notes of red fruits on the mid palate with firm tannins. Complexity on the back palate with strong flavours of pomegranate, cranberry and delicious raspberry tart. A wine that will age gracefully over time.
