McLaren Vale Syrah Grenache 2015

95 Points

70/30% blend; Blewitt Springs grenache, open-fermented and matured separately, 15-20% whole bunches, the remainder destemmed, aged on fine lees in used French oak. The wine repays the complex time-consuming vinification. The bouquet is fragrant with delicate red fruits and haunting spices, followed by an enchanting mouthfeel as red fruits flow serenely across the mouth, the deeper tones of plum and blackberry ex the shiraz adding complexity, but not impinging on the main message.
