Lienert Jack West Grenache 2021


The Jack West name reflects one often given to John Lienert, while the wines are prepared to reflect the man’s character – “big and generous”. The grapes come from the western parts of the Barossa, which receive cooling afternoon breezes from the Gulf of St Vincent. A gentle crimson colour, the nose is redolent of strawberries. The wine is still very young and perhaps a little raw, but it is coming together nicely. The wine also offers florals amidst the red berries with a nice line of acidity and a pleasing lingering finish, plus soft tannins, before a gentle fade. An attractive Grenache’d I’d be inclined to leave for a couple of years and then enjoy over the following four or five.
