Grenache, 2015

Australia Red

McLaren Vale 75cl

Made by the Shaw & Smith folks. It just won the Top 100 Wines SA award, which is keenly contested.
Low yields and hand-picking. Open ferments, one all whole berries (entirely destemmed, but not crushed) and one with 30% whole bunches including stems. Picking is at ripeness not over-ripeness. Time in oak is minimal, ensuring that the brightness of fruit is maintained. It shows super fresh and intense red fruit, with masses of flavour packed into a medium bodied wine. Crunchy and bright, its a lovely modern bright style, red berry fruit to the fore with a touch of spice and ripe tannins. Lovely modern style of Australian Grenache, just 13% alcohol.
