A floral nose of rose hip, sliced strawberries and pitted red cherries. Full-bodied with silky tannins. Juicy and fresh with the floral character continuing onto the palate, accompanied by some attractive leafy undertones

It took grenache roughly 150 years to become an overnight success in Australia but the glory days of Aussie grenache are upon us. This release is fresh, delicate, laced with dry spice and tannin, juicy with fruit, and high in drinkability. It feels authentic because it is. Raspberry characters with a glow to them. Earth notes inlaid. Everything on firm/sure tippy toes, ballerina-like, elevated and exact. There’s texture here too, warm texture, silk fresh from the ironing board, treated right. A lovely drink, it is.

Velvety layers of deep raspberry and pomegranate fruit with rose petal heart, sage leaf, green peppercorn and a wink of a dark savoury edge. Fine and precise, balanced finish with brightness and clarity. Nothing too complex, this is a juicy, joyous and easily consumed wine!
