Other Reviews….
Moppa-sourced grenache from a 1900-planted vineyard. Some whole bunches, matured for 14 months in seasoned French oak hogsheads. Notes of raspberry, red plum, tobacco, gingerbread, grilled watermelon, cola and almond blossom. Calm, composed and savoury with a lovely fruit presence, briny, lipsmacking acid drive and a supple, kinetic structure that bodes well for the future. Western Barossa grenache on the charge. Drink by 2033.
