100% Grenache. Featherweight and elegant: opening up a bottle, you’re greeted with notes of red cherry, fennel and granite on the nose, and on the palate, there’s lingering acidity, barely there tannins and a mélange of red fruits and minerals. Although there’s plenty to contemplate, this playful wine offers lots of immediate pleasure. The vines range from 40-80 years of age, and are all planted to pink clay and chalky gypsum.
Delicately perfumed with cherry, licorice, violets, mint and granitic minerality, this is a delightful and complex wine that demonstrates the suave, genteel character Grenache is capable of when in the right hands. Its texture is like silk, yet there's an exuberance of fruit and minerals belying its lithe body. A true standout.
