The Hun­dred Ble­witt Springs Gre­nache 2015, Wil­lunga 100, Mclaren Vale, South Aus­tralia

The Week - - News | Sport -

What a discovery — this Gre­nache wine is noth­ing like a South­ern Rhone and shows su­perb har­mony only three years into its life. Some­thing of a rar­ity as only 600 cases are made from 85 year-old vines. The tan­nins are very fine and there is a del­i­cate flo­ral nose to this high al­ti­tude wine. I only wish more Aus­tralian reds could show this bal­ance and el­e­gance for such a rea­son­able price. Doubt­less it will im­prove with bot­tle age, but there’s no need to wait given how much plea­sure it im­parts al­ready.
