Robert Oatley G-20 McLaren Vale Grenache 2020


From the Signature Series and amazing value as for me, it is simply a joy to drink at the moment. Don’t look to lock this away in the cellar. Waste of cellar space. Drink it now. 

Sourced from the southern vineyards in McLaren Vale, this is fermented on skins in a mix of both open and closed fermenters and then spent a short time in tanks with no oak. Pale crimson. Aromas of strawberries and raspberries. Fresh. There is an appealing ‘strawberries and cream’ note to this. Rose petals, spices. Lovely soft texture and the merest hint of gently sandy tannins one sees in good regional grenache. Terrific for the vintage. This is a drink now style. Delicious.
