Description

From 1946 plantings, adjacent to High Sands. Gets a whopping 133 days on skins (the High Sands a more modest 21 days). Raised only in ceramic eggs. My word, the rise and rise of Grenache in this country is something to behold, and as a hard core Nebbiolo enthusiast, I find a kinship in this wine.

Red cherry, raspberry, liquorice root, lemon thyme, orange peel, pepper and exotic spice, rosehip. It’s fleshy with superb graphite tannin, rich flavour but with no excess, the botanical and citrus peel perfume, the succulent raspberry and redcurrant, the tang and freshness, even some smoky bacon things and black tea, but so tight, and so right, with a finish that carries on and on, much like my prose, perhaps. If this wine is my muse, then so be it. Throw yourself on to the rocks of this delight. It’s siren song is strong. Your passage is a modest $80. Pleasure awaits. 96+ Points, Gary Walsh - TWF.
