Grenache

Small Batch Wines  |  2007 Grenache

Ben Thomas, Decanter, 2010

This grenache, mixed with 5 per cent shiraz, is a wine with voluptuous floral aromas of strawberries, rich cherry and tar. For a wine with quite a high alcohol level this is rather light in colour and weight but there are intense flavours of cherry, strawberry and savoury, earthy notes. Its tannins are ripe and drying and there is a long, spicy finish to complete this wine.
