A bright full flavoured Grenache, with the hint of sweet fruits carried through the palette to a more earthy flavour. The aroma of mulberries and earthy sweet fruits make this wine a one of a kind Grenache
From the Winery
With the traditional complexity of a medium to full bodied Grenache, this wine displays a full depth of flavour. The initial fragrance of flowers, mulberries, plums and cherries gives the wine a rich burst of aroma. However the complexity of this wine shows on the palette, as the secondary layer of exotic earthy undertones, giving this wine a full flavour. Tannins in this wine give it a bright natural acidity, with a long and lingering finish. Rated highly for its dusky and aged oak aromas, the finish of chewy tannins and a exotic spice bring it back to that earthy finish. Perfect accompaniment to cured meats or an antipasto platter.
2012 Vintage: 95 Points - James Halliday, Wine Companion "Chester Osborn had the vision to acquire old, even derelict, vineyards when grenache was disregarded once its use in fortified wines had ended. The usual d'Arenberg completion of one-third of fermentation in barrel has served very well: this is a grenache with macho attitude, red and blue fruits in a basket of integrated tannins and oak. Good as it is now, it will be best in another 10 years."
