Little Giant McLaren Vale Grenache 2021
The explosion in interest for the Grenache from McLaren Vale has finally put these wines where they deserve to be on the international stage. And with it has come a diversity of styles from the old fruit bombs to more savoury, and long-lived examples. This wine sits someone in the middle although in a package that is designed for youthful drinking. Mid cherry in colour, it is bursting with vibrant fruit from raspberry and cranberry through to some darker, earthy tones. On the palate there are spicier, red liquorice flavours in a supple and fleshy package underscored by grainy tannins. This has your next barbecue written all over it.
