Wine of the Week AU

Chapel Hill Bush Vine Grenache 2014, McLaren Vale, AUD $30

This delicious grenache has those often talked-about hints of pinot noir. The bouquet is raspberry, black cherry and spice, however, the wine is full-bodied and backed by ample tannins. There’s rich sweet fruit and lavish cherry flavour. A seriously good grenache. (Screwcap)
