Clarendon Hills Blewitt Springs Grenache 2020

$65.00

The Clarendon Hills Blewitt Springs Grenache is sourced from a single vineyard planted in the 1940’s and is located in the famously deep sands of Blewitt Springs, McLaren Vale. This classic old, bush vine vineyard produces absolutely magnificent fruit every year and is considered a prized Premier Cru vineyard by the winemaking team Clarendon Hills. The typical expression reveals notes of red and black cherry, blood orange, musk, violets, iodine and crushed rock, where baking spices elevates all to a highly exotic state. The talcum like extract makes for a textured mouthfeel and is perfect for pairing with a charcuterie plate. The 2020 release offers unbridled blood orange and fresh cut rose notes throughout the expression and is spectacular to enjoy.

 

“A very pure expression with dried red plums, wild herbs and rust, as well as blueberries and a dry-roasted spice thread. Fragrant and savory. The palate has a sleek, fresh and assertive core of very aligned and defined tannins. The acidity sits fresh and there‚Äôs a wealth of tart red-berry, blood-orange and dried-plum fruit. Will build spice with age. Drink over the next decade.”
