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