James Halliday's Wine Companion

Grenache so pure and delicate it borders on angelic (or celestial, if you prefer). The gentlest touch and the effective expulsion of oak, has given you a picture of grenache at its prettiest. Drink by: 2024

Sam Kim

Offering lovely varietal purity, the wine shows sweetly perfumed aromas of raspberry and dark plum on the nose with nuances of toasted nut, thyme and floral. The palate is equally charming and delectable with juicy fruit intensity and rounded mouthfeel, backed by silky texture and polished tannins. At its best: now to 2023

Ray Jordan

Beautiful statement of McLaren Vale grenache. Lifted rose petal and leafy notes on the nose with a touch of raspberry spiciness. Slightly chalky tannins with a seamless smooth palate texture that extends effortlessly to a very long finish.

This is a gorgeous wine, but you need to give it a little time and air to show its best. Pale mid-red colour. Beautifully aromatic, soft sweet-fruit; bright raspberry and cherry with accents of musk. Low tannin and bright acidity. A modern, bright, fragrant, light-red for early drinking
