Gary Walsh, Winefront. Bekkers 2013 Grenache.

If I had two of the letter K in my name, I’d be tempted to place them ‘back to back’ too.  I’m tasting from bottle number 0359, though I don’t know how many of them were made. Can confirm, of course, that it’s an absolute minimum of 359.

Perfumed, laden with raspberries and spice, peppermint and chocolate. Medium bodied, silky smooth with fine lacy tannin, clean acidity, sweet fruit, though savoury through its core. Rings clear and long on the finish. Has a minor burr from alcohol, but with Grenache, you need to crack plenty of eggs to make a tasty omelette. This is a pretty tasty omelette.  94pts.
