Greenock Creek Cornerstone Grenache 2020


What an impressive opening to this latest set of releases. It comes from old bush vines grown on the shale-filled hill which forms part of the Roennfeldt Road vineyard, in the Marananga sub-region of the Barossa Valley. Apparently 16% alcohol, which I would have never guessed from tasting.  The colour is dark maroon. Gorgeous aromatics here, beautifully fragrant floral notes with raspberries and fresh cherries. The perfumes rising from this wine are so alluring and entrancing. Milk chocolate, gentle spices and much more to be found here. The palate is utterly seamless leading to the silkiest of tannins, more so than one usually expects from grenache. A very long finish. This is a stunning Grenache and amazing value.
