Simple wild berries and dried flowers on a light, translucent ruby substrate. Soft, juicy, and notably shallow on the palate. Hides it’s alcohol well. Perfectly tasty if a bit one-dimensional.

This sucker has all the juicy components you want from Gamay with finesse of PN and slight pepper notes from Grenache... finesse from BAROSSA?! Praise him.

Can I dub this wine super yumtown? Sometimes I run out of good adjectives. This is a wine that makes me understand why some call Grenache the Pinot noir of the south. A fine and silky red rendition. Less ripe than last night’s cannonau it’s all red fruit (fresh and stewed) and white pepper and the leather and herbal earth come in later and lighter. I really like this. It stands without food.

A Grenache from Australia that looks, smells, and tastes like Beaujolais. I wanna find out how and why they made such a wonderful thing. #wtf #grenache #barossa #geeky

15.5/20 (87/100)

Сухие красные ягоды, каменная пыль, сырно-кефирные нотки, копчёности. Дымно, немного сухих трав, дробленый камень. Очень гастрономичное, с хорошей кислотностью, лёгкое, хотя и несколько алкогольное вино. Продолжительное послевкусие.
