2015 Bekkers McLaren Vale Grenache
One of the most outstanding wines of the thousands I tasted last year: superb, earthy, macerated red and black fruits, perfectly poised, wrapped up in firm, lip-smacking tannin and a deep, umami-rich savoury quality. Intensely flavoured but not heavy: the wine carries its 15 per cent alcohol effortlessly, and will, I suspect, develop beautifully in the cellar for many years.
