Grenache is quickly becoming a critic favourite and McLaren Vale is among the ideal spot for the grape to shine. This Pirramimma Old Bush Vine Grenache displays an elegantly perfumed nose of cherries, rose petal, chocolate and spice, while the palate exhibits sweet spicy raspberry, fruit cake, black plum and toffee apple, enhanced by savoury subtle oak.
Accolades and Awards:
2012 Vintage: 94 Points - James Halliday, Australian Wine Companion "From two estate vineyards planted '44 and '68; hand-picked, open-fermented in old concrete vats, basket-pressed and matured in used French barriques. It abounds with red fruits of every description, with an overlay of spice and herb, finishing with superfine tannins."
