Certified organic and Biodynamic. Semi translucent red to dark red colour with black toned edges and a light red hue. Intense dark raspberry, red liquorice and cherry aromas sail out of the glass followed by some vanillin confectionary and subtle peppered earth notes. Rich and succulent the palate is awash with dark raspberry, liquorice and dark cherry fruits which morph into a vanillin confectionary, scorched earth and pepper back drop. Velvet smooth tannins finishing long and juicy with a silken feel.
Drink over the next 3-4 years.
Alc. 14.5%

Other Reviews….
The 2022 Grenache hails from McLaren Vale, bush-vine fruit that was handpicked and made with whole bunches and a wild ferment. It is spacious and spiny on the nose with loads of orange oil tannins and bright, apple and red raspberry fruit in the mouth. The tannins exert a firm style over the fruit, but the fruit rises up to meet it. So, all things considered, this is a balanced and juicy wine, with notes of beeswax, chinotto, sarsaparilla, juniper berries and cherry skin, etc. Good! 14.5% alcohol, sealed under screw cap. Drink 2023-2032.
