A superb Grenache that has a lingering finish. A wine that can be enjoyed now, or well into the future.
"An impressive wine from the first moment, this has a very rich array of intense raspberry and red-plum aromas, framed in gentle, spice and fresh-pastry notes. The palate is so fresh and so concentrated with ripe raspberries and red plums. This is truly exceptional." Rating: 96. Nick Stock. jamessuckling.com
"Rich red fruits, sage and spice, has intensity and a salami-like savoury edge. Dense, minty, tannin is fleshy and fine-grained, menthol and dried herb on a long and firm finish. A lot of character, and verity of fruit. Really good." Rating: 93. Gary Walsh. The Wine Front

Where this wine comes from - Barossa Valley
The Barossa Valley is Australia’s best-known wine region and there’s a good reason why. The wines certainly live up to their international reputation, particularly Barossa Shiraz. With long, warm summers, the region produces full-bodied styles with power and panache. The reds are rich and luscious in their youth with dark-berried flavours, fruit intensity and fine-grained tannins, which mature gracefully with time in the cellar. But there’s more to the region than Shiraz. Grenache and Mourvèdre do more than play a supporting role in GSM blends, they’re standing on their own two feet as single varietal wines. And with a new school of winemakers at the helm, the region is in good hands for a long and healthy future.
