    October 20, 2019 - Grenache with clear Pinot Noir sensibility. After a few hours of air the nose develops nicely of blood orange, mossy undergrowth, cinnamon, ginger, pomegranate, rose water, cigar ash, and cardamom. The palate has medium minus tannin and medium plus acid. The finish is long carried by much of the same elements of the nose. Just a beautiful drinkable wine that I expect will age well.

    June 29, 2019 - At this particular point there’s nothing there. Nothing. (nr)

    ...but after an hour, aniseed, raspberries. Pure and juicy. Surprisingly closed from the off. (88)

    And a bit meatier on day two. Intriguing nose and fresh acidity. Looking forward to follow this. (90)

    February 10, 2019 - Cloudy to look at. Great florals, rose water, red frogs and raspberry. There’s a kind of fruit sweetness but there is also a slight bitterness that counters and balances it. Fennel and spice. Bright and youthful but also has fine sandy tannin giving some serious structure. This is what Aussie Grenache is all about.
