2015 Walsh Sons Lola
ABOUT THE WINE
This blend is a softer yet more complex style than the traditional classic Margaret River blend. Syrah helps fill Cabernet mid pallet weight whilst Grenache heightens the nose, adds finishing tannin and naturally lowers the pH in the wine aiding in natural preservation and balance. Walsh & Sons is a small, family-owned winery creating small batches of wine with big personalities. Using traditional methods in their vineyard and natural winemaking techniques, they aim to make expressive styles that are fun, youthful and different to the mainstream.
Found in the southwest corner of Western Australia, Margaret River is regarded as one of the finest wine growing regions. It is especially known for Sauvignon Blanc and Cabernet Sauvignon, which rival the very best in the world. There’s more to Margaret River than maybe you’d first realise. With Tempranillo and Malbec excelling, and Touriga Nacional, Chenin Blanc and Nebbiolo getting more (absolutely deserved) recognition, it’s an exciting time for the region.
Try these with grilled, roast and barbecued red meats, rich braises, and mature cheeses – you won’t regret it! They pair really well with rare roast beef or aged Cheddar cheese with fig and walnut sourdough.
