Paisley Wines Velvet Grenache 2021


Grenache from the Barossa and a cracking vintage, superb region and seriously popular grape. What is not to love? The fruit is sourced from a vineyard in the Southern end of the Barossa, with vines exceeding 80 years of age with very low yields. The team divide the fruit into parcels to allow for a range of winemaking techniques. They employ whole bunches, wild fermentation and post ferment maceration, before maturation in French hogsheads.  Pale crimson in colour, we have florals and cherries, dry herbs, roast meat notes, red fruits and spices all weaved together on the nose before a lovely soft texture and a lingering finish. Coffee grind notes emerge on the palate and the wine finishes with a hint of almond bitterness and fine silky tannins with good length. Drink now and for three to four years.
