Davey & Browne Vortex Red Blend

Davey & Browne represents the culmination of a long, enduring friendship between noted Australian wine luminary Kym Davey, who has a passion for motorbikes, and American wine entrepreneur Andrew Browne, an avid fly fishing enthusiast. Sourced from the estate-grown fruit, VORTEX is a blend of Cabernet Sauvignon, Tempranillo and Grenache. This McLaren Vale wine has notes of dark berry fruit mixed with hints of cherry and strawberry to deliver an easy drinking style with a long, lingering finish that pairs well with a variety of foods.

2016 Vortex Red Blend Tasting Note

Mid purple-red in color, this red blend opens with aromas of cassis and couverture chocolate (Cabernet Sauvignon) with nuances of ripe, red apple skin (Tempranillo), earth and spice (Grenache). Maturation in French oak contributes to notes of cashew and vanilla. Juicy blackberry and cherry fruit flavours are contained by the tightly woven tannins and a fresh, natural acidity. This beguiling medium to full-bodied red blend expresses beautifully the synergy of the 3 varieties and the earth in which they grow.
