Rich and floral

St John’s Road The Resilient Grenache 2017, Barossa Valley, AUD $22

The depth of colour is impressive and the bouquet has sweet, ripe floral, spice and dried herb aromas. The palate is big on sweet dark cherry fruit, richness, fine tannins and subtle alcohol after-warmth. Top value from winemaker Philip Lehmann and the Hesketh group. (Screwcap)
