Los Companeros 2017 is the 6th Shiraz & Tempranillo blend released under the Pikes label. Initially aromas of ripe, dark berry fruit with flecks of pink peppercorn and chocolate, followed by hints of damp earth and mint which also emerge once the wine begins to open up with air. The oak is very much in the background and does not play a major role here. The palate is soft and rich, brimming with dark berries, chocolate and a little spice. The rich flavours are nicely tempered by savoury tannins and balanced acidity. A medium bodied Clare Red at its attractive best. The richness and softness of the Shiraz (85%) is complimented by the slightly rustic tannins of the Tempranillo (15%).
Food pairing: Great with something retro like a good old fashioned Chilli Con Carne. Enjoy.
Ageing potential: Drink now and over the next 3-5 years.
