Small Batch Wines | 2008 Grenache
Campbell Mattinson, The Big Red Wine Book 2010, 92 Points
The oak is heavy but the flesh is strong. This grenache from Oliver’s Taranga has a future ahead of it.
Vanilla and malt, with an added hit of spearmint. Give the wine time to breathe though and its persistence becomes more and more compelling, and it’s fleshy, fruity, grainy mid palate increasingly enjoyable. Fine-grained tannins nurse the wine along. I eventually came away impressed.
