Seppeltsfield Great Terraced Vineyard Grenache 2021


This beautifully pitched Barossa Grenache from 2021 adds another reference point for the rise and rise of Australian Grenache. Sometimes referred to as warm climate Pinot Noir, you can certainly see that finesse, poise and subtlety here. As always with high quality Grenache this is a wine that creeps up on you with wafts of black cherry, new leather, baked earth and spice aromas with oak adding a gently savoury backdrop. There is also a delicious silkiness to earthy, red fruit flavours under which a backbone of al-dente tannins help to retain focus and give backing to a sustained, finely balanced finish. Super sophisticated, this is a wine that needs a couple of years to build but then promises great things over the medium term.
