BEKKERS GRENACHE MCLAREN VALE

COUNTRY Australia

REGION South Australia

VINTAGE 2014

SCORE 94

TASTING NOTES

Super rich, silky, ripe and saturated in flavor. This is an essence-like grenache that delivers attractive flavorsome red and dark berry fruits aromas with raspberry leaf and orange zest, hints of pomegranate too, nicely struck. The palate has assertive ripe summer berry fruit flavor, oak has been well played to add structure and sweet spice flavors. Tangy and succulent finish, liquorice to close. Nut-ripe tannins. Drink now and through to 2020.
