Old vine grenache

Mr Riggs Generation Series The Magnet Grenache 2015, McLaren Vale, AUD $30

An assertive, charismatic wine with prominent raspberry and cherry aromatics as well as musk undertones. The palate is luscious, rounded and sweet-fruited. It is completely and utterly delicious, and crammed with flavour, being made from 100-year-old grenache vines. A long, spicy, warming, satisfying finish. (Screwcap)
