Well, there is definitely and uptake from the Granit 30. Simply more of everything, including definition, drive, and layers across the mid palate. Like the 30, incredibly youthful. Bigger is sometimes better I guess.
Better than the Granit 30 at this stage. Similar flavor profile - very Cornas with dark fruit, leather, and other savory elements. Fine dusty tannins at the end. Overall more elegant and integrated than the 30, which was a bit awkward at this stage. Nice syrah.
Club Lunch #1 - 2014: Purple coloured. Floral, stalky, with tar and licorice. Plenty of fine tannin asserts itself on the palate, there is light sweet fruit and good potential to improve. Divided the table somewhat but I certainly liked it.
red, maroon, in color. sweet, cranberry from the can, plum, dark fruit, spice, black pepper, on the nose. oak, cranberry, plum, earth, dirt, leather, on the palate. high acid, medium tannins, on this tart fruit finish.
Curiosity won me over here. Glad it did. Evident a balanced extraction was in mind here. Grip, a background of intense fruit. A dinner table wine, and a producer I will experiment more with in the future. Serious and in the affordable price range realm compared to many other in this quality level category.
Purple red colour. A bit of a polarising wine, which is probably due to the fact that it is so far outside the usual bold, fruit-driven style of Aussie shiraz that most of the people tasting are familiar with.
Violets and blackberries on opening, and then with red cherries and raspberries after. Hints of pepper, meat and eucalypt too. Fine tannins and low acid make this quite soft and really approachable already - far more than I've found the last two vintages - although it will certainly benefit from same age. Sensational with some lasagne!
Tank sample. Quite a dense mineral nose, much more closed than the 11 Granit 30. On first taste it's big, grippy and spicy with a savoury mineral character. With a bit of time it seems silkier with blackberry fruit coming through with a floral, almost spearmint note on the finish.
Impressive and bang on point for what you would expect for a Cornas. Iron fillings, blood, cracked pepper, black fruit and liquorice cut through with acidity. Time out of the bottle brings considerable development with grilled meat and beef stock notes. Some orange peel as well. Surprisingly approachable despite its youth. Very good, and excellent value for money.
