Tasting Notes

Jimmy Watson Trophy Winner 2017 - grown mostly on vines planted over 100 years ago. It's a pearler. Light on its feet but powerful. Tannic but in a velvety way. Ripe but not too sweet. It tastes of black cherry and raspberry, earth, florals, and sweet spice, almost into anise, but it's the wine's insistence, the way it curls through the palate, and the gravity of the fruit itself that really elevates it. Benchmark Barossa grenache, and no overt sign of oak. Campbell Mattinson - Winefront
