Mike Bennie, The Wine Front, 2017 Grenache "Here’s a world class grenache" 95 pts

2017 McLaren Vale Grenache

RATNG: 95


Toby Bekkers (and family) story of their own label is intertwined in detail and labour, with a focus on vineyard, which could come out of the marketing playbook, only it’s really real in this case. A dedicated, site-focussed project with wines that follow vineyard, rather than wines made to market.

These are a very impressive suite of wines each release.

Here’s a world class grenache.

Svelte and lithe, perfumed and delicately flavoured, a beautiful wine that reveals itself quietly in the glass. Scents of dried raspberry, pomegranate, cherry, green herbs and briar, a touch of mushroom. The palate sits just over medium weight, shaped well with a spread of lacy tannins, drawn long on lightly creamy texture, a generosity of ripe fruit flavour but understated too, and finishes fine and pitch-perfect gently sweet. You could say ‘a pinosity here’ but it’s wholly grenache, and excellent for that. Excellent indeed.
