Chaffey Bros - Battle for Barossa - La Resistance 2016

Chaffey Bros

Regular price $27.00 Sale price $32.00

La Resistance is a play on the classic Rhone blend of Grenache Shiraz Mourvedre. 

I don’t often think of delicacy and the Barossa in the same space, this is one of those times. Chaffey Bros have taken an age-old blend and produced with some finesse a wine that is a delicate representation of the style. There is richness and opulence, but it is not overblown, there is depth of flavour but hardly any weight.

My notes: Rich red fruit on the nose, cherries and raspberries backed by the slightest hint of black pepper and charcuterie. Right at the end there are elements of sweetness, just vague hints.

The palate is without doubt “red frogs” and in a moment, I was revisiting countless hours at the school tuckshop. Lots of raspberry followed with a backdrop of beetroot and dust. Textures are fantastic, the wine is mouth filling but delicately tickles the palate. Subtle seasoned oak and caramel lead to a deep-fruited, dark cherries and strawberries. There is this wonderful line of acid at the end that ties everything together and the tannins are really fine and delicate. There is a wonderful length and finish to this wine. There is depth of flavour to this wine without additional weight making it perfect for chilling down and enjoying on a summers night.
