Winefront - 2012 Grenache, 93pts

 

It’s always good to see Barossa grenache with a reasonable alcohol reading. This is the first release of a varietal grenache under the Tim Smith name. It was grown on two Barossa vineyards, both of which carry grenache vines that have been growing there for roughly 80 years. Some whole bunches were used.

Smells great. Raspberries, blackberries, dried herbs, maybe some floral notes. Sweet and summery but not jammy or overdone. Take a sip and you instantly note the energy this wine has. It’s up and about, alive to its possibilities. The flavours bounce around your mouth. It has a warmth but it has an elegance. Sweet at its core but only just. This is a terrific Oz grenache. Its best should be ahead of it.
