Outstanding colour extraction! Black purple colour with purple hue. The nose is a touch subdued, but reveals aroma of violets, liquorice and blood plum followed by a touch of raspberry and soy. The palate is relatively tight, much more tightly knit than previous vintages from the same vineyard. The grapes for this wine were picked in 4 sessions over a two week period. Bratasiuk flavour profiles his vineyard, as well as paying attention to the ‘numbers’ that evolve from fluid testing.

Flavours of liquorice, plum and violet emerge followed by a white pepper back palate and a warm spicy sensation. The tannin structure is fine, much drier than the previous wines, however perfectly balanced with exceptionally long spicy, plum and white pepper aftertaste.

Robert Parker's Review
According to Roman Bratasiuk, the “Dolly Parton” of Grenache is the 2003 Grenache Old Vines Blewitt Springs, from a vineyard whose soils include quartz, sand, and loam. This opulent, voluptuous, deep ruby/purple-colored effort offers a heady mixture of red and black fruits, incense, licorice, and full-bodied, viscous, exuberant flavors. Drink this delicious offering over the next decade.
