Wild cherry and Asian five spice powder on the nose. Plush and velvety in the mouth with good flesh and underlying minerality. There are some tart cranberry and pomegranate fruits that give a delightful snap to the finish. Australia'a answer to high quality village Vosne.
This is seriously good. Deeply pitched, tightly coiled, exotic but restrained. It is fresh and spicy with some blood plum notes. There are some red berry and floral things once you give the wine some time in the glass. It is linear with great focus and length of flavor is superb.
Off an 80 year old vineyard at 400+ meters above sea level. This is a beautiful, highly perfumed Grenache. It has an intoxicating nose of fresh flowers, red berries and earth. It is fleshy in the mouth with luscious fruits that have a real juicy quality to them. It is perfectly proportioned and the structure is there but at the moment its buried deep in sensual fruit. Quite outstanding.
