The colour is almost opaque, black purple mauve colour with black purple hue. The nose is quite perfumed, with violet top note, followed by ripe raspberry, spice and confectionary. On the palate the tannins are quite tight – over a very strong spicy back palate. The fruit is subdued with dry tannins persisting.

Other Reviews…….
It is always easy to pick out the Blewitt Springs Grenache given its flamboyant, jammy blueberry and black raspberry style. The full-bodied, rich, showy 2005 Grenache Blewitt Springs is deeper-colored than the Clarendon Hills and Hickinbotham as well as super-pure.
