ABOUT THE WINE
Born into a grape-growing family, Don Lewis spent 32 years working for the Mitchelton winery in Heathcote, where he forged an enduring partnership with Narelle King. In 2004 Don left Mitchelton to work as a consultant, most notably in Priorat, Spain. His time in Europe cultivated his fascination with the wines of Italy and Spain, and in 2006 he and Narelle set up Tar and Roses in order to show how these varietals could be grown in the diverse terroirs of Central Victoria.

TASTING NOTES
The nose is very pleasant with aromas of blueberries and plum at first. As it opens eucalyptus and star anise start to show. The palate is dominated by soft black fruit, nutmeg, tobacco and hints of charcoal. This wine is dense, dry and full with savoury tannins.

FOOD PAIRING
Pairs beautifully with steaks or lamb, spicy dishes and barbeques, that hint of smoke makes it great with barbecued pork spare-ribs with plum sauce.

FRIARWOOD SAYS
Compares favourably to a Crianza from Ribera del Duero, with a smooth, dusty character and a hint of spice from French oak barriques
