A wine that was ahead of its time. It set the tone for a more elegant, pure-fruited, medium-bodied style of McLaren Vale Grenache which is definitely in vogue at the moment.
A fragrant thread of garrigue, ground Asiatic spices and charcuterie is underpinned with violets and elderberry. The taut natural tension of compact nervy red currents and Satusuma plum fills the mid palate with mouth-watering berry fruit intensity. Finely grained tannins position this svelte, fleshy and measured weight of forest cherries and persimmon into a long succulent and savory finish.
