Hewitson UNGRAFTED Grenache 2023


With layers of jubey raspberry fruit, cherry cola spice and a savoury stemmy element, this Barossa Valley Grenache is from rare century-old, ungrafted vines grown in deep sandy soils, and is whole bunch fermented in open vats and matured in old French barrels. With lingering cedary tannins, I find it the most savoury of Dean’s wines and a brilliant match for slow roasted porchetta.
