Fruity grenache

Willunga 100 Grenache 2015, McLaren Vale, AUD $25

An appealing grenache with unusually deep colour, a sweet lolly confectionery like aroma and succulent, fruit-sweet palate which finishes long. It has light to medium-weight, and the right amount of tannin to provide structure and a clean finish. (Screwcap)
