Blewitt Springs Grenache 2015
Colour:Â Deep crimson/ruby.
Nose:Â Lifted and layered. The evolving nose reveals at first, fresh forest berries with a mixture of softly perfumed rose petal aromas, whose mixture of Turkish delight and strawberries and cream is truly attention grabbing. On decant, a vineyard-unique salty/brine character begins to nuance with subtle anise and earthy notes to create an entirely more dramatic and sophisticated expression. An entirely hedonistic perfume whose suggestion of effortless power and wealth becomes apparent with time.
Palate:Â UponÂ Layers of playful cherry, boysenberry and red currant fruit play throughout a long, orchestral finish. The extremely fine boned, talcum like extract presents itself as it appears to â€˜tap the brakesâ€™ across the mid palate before finishing across a long, creamy finish. Mouth watering, bright natural acidity highlights the exquisite fruit quality whose balance of savoury, raw fruit like, character is neither sugary or jamy. Its just sweet and ripe and delicious. The remarkably concealed yet omnipresent super fine tannin will safely sustain this gorgeous single vineyard example for another two decades or more..
