Los Companeros 2016 is now the 5th Shiraz & Tempranillo blend released under the Pikes label. Aromas of lifted, spiced cherry and blueberry fruit with some choc/mint notes overlay a gentle earthiness adding another dimension. A bright, juicy and very approachable palate with blueberry and chocolate flavours, nicely tempered by some savoury tannins and well-balanced acidity. The richness and softness of the Shiraz (80%) is complimented by the slightly rustic tannins of the Tempranillo (20%). Drink now and over the next 3-5 years. It works perfectly well with anything from pizza, to tacos, to a humble lamb chop cooked on the BBQ. Enjoy.
James Suckling – June 27, 2019 – 90 points: “This has a mellow, blueberry, plum and old-wood spice style that really beckons for the barbecue and casual drinking. The palate is very smooth, succulent and easy with a fresh, glossy, red-fruit core.”
