The Penny Farthing, an opulent traditional old-world blend of Grenache, Shiraz and Mataro, sourced from McLaren Vale and Clare Valley. Rusty Bike is one of The Barrel Thief’s recent discoveries – a small boutique producer located at Houghton in the picturesque Adelaide Hills.
Traditional old-world blend of Grenache, Shiraz and Mataro, sourced from McLaren Vale and Clare Valley. The rich spicy fruit flavours of old vine Grenache balances the opulent power of Shiraz and the firmer structure of Mataro.
It is a highly fragrant wine with a complex arrangement of red cherries, mulberries and lifted floral spicy notes. Rich red fruits on the palate support the supple velvety tannins, resulting in a long and elegant finish.
