2012 GrenacheGRENACHE

Grenache 2012.pdf

Made from 538 estate vines. Brightly coloured, this is the epitome of McLaren Vale grenache, with its fresh cornucopia of bright red fruits and firm finish that has no need of structural assistance from shiraz, and has no confection fruit whatsoever.

Terrific purity to this wine, the nose offers up fresh blue and purple fruits, cherries and brambly wild blackberries, some hints of liquorice and an iodine-like edge. The palate’s fleshy, full and robust with a very soft, generous and focused core of black fruits, fine tannins and genuine density. Lovely smooth texture from top to toe. Will age nicely for a decade or more. Drink in 2018.

Nick Stock – 94/100

Mataro 2012 – Tasting Notes.pdf

A very fresh, bright and upbeat nose, that has a clear liquorice and plum edge, redder notes, fresh and bright, nicely spiced up with sweeter oak complexity. The palate’s all nicely spaced and has layers of structure and flavour folded together neatly, flavours are deep and satisfying in the plum and cherry spectrum, well grounded, will age for a decade or more. Drink in 2017.
