Analysis: Alcohol 15%
"Stylish and complex, the wine shows dark berry, tapenade, smoky bacon and roasted nut characters on the nose, followed by a succulent palate that's supple and fleshy. The wine offers silky flow and richly textured mouthfeel, finishing luxurious and satisfying."
Sam Kim, Wine Orbit
"Blewitt Springs is home to some of the finest Grenache in McLaren Vale with this wine made with 65% Blewitt Springs Grenache and the balance being Shiraz. It is a big, ripe and deeply coloured style of Grenache showing layers of jubey dark fruits with a dusting of aged leather, and spice. It’s then super soft and supple, tannins light and feathery which supports a lingering finish. Enjoy in the next couple of years with gourmet sausage rolls."
