Ray Jordan - The West Australian

This is another using the wonderful fruit of McLaren Vale’s Blewitt Springs. The vineyard itself was planted back in 1923 so it also brings some old vine fruity to the table. Perfumed and seductive grenache with a brightness and lively expression that captures the essence of this variety. Old large French oak has allows the rose petal notes of the fruit to emerge.It’s medium bodied with chalky tannins shaping the long palate.

Very inviting and the ‘YUM’ factor is high with this @clandestinevineyards Grenache. Nicely played indeed! Link to more info is in my bio if you would like to know more. Cheers!!

This is a Grenache for lovers of dare I say it, Gigondas. Red black and blue fruited tones, deep red cherries, ripe blood plum and blackberry. A huge array of botanicals and spice from juniper berries to clove, soft licorice and dark chocolate. The small percentage of whole bunch adds a sliver of herbs, sage and wintergreen.The palate is lifted and elegant, a touch of alcohol sweetness on the finish reminding you yes this is Grenache. They have packed a whooping amount into this bottle and the generosity of fruit and aromatic lifts represent Blewitt Springs and McLaren Vale alike.
