Aces & Arrows Grenache Barossa 2019


Finally, Mick got Barossa Grenache. His fascination with the variety started in Spain, but here, he has some wonderful old vine vineyards, four of them, with which to work. Fermentation was in a mix of stainless steel and French oak, and was on either skins or whole bunches. A gleaming magenta hue here, the aromas include strawberries, bay leaves, dried herbs, warm earth, spices, and cherries. A wine of mid-weight and decent length with a lingering finish. Good energy here, this is fresh with sleek tannins. Delightful drinking, this is a youthful style but has a good future. Four to eight years. Excellent value.

Variety: Red Wine, Grenache
