Juicy, delicious and ready to drink now, this beauty has spice, cherries and rose petals bursting from the glass. Supple tannins, good length and an earthy finish cap off a charming, fruit-driven wine that pairs well with any tomato-based dish.
95 points, Jane Faulkner, 2021 James Halliday Wine Companion: "What appeals is how the fruit does the talking. Winemaking merely the guide. Made in a fresh, drink now style yet with some depth and shape thanks to its grainy tannins and savoury overlay. Delicious."
90 points, James Suckling: "Attractive raspberry and papaya aromas here with red plums and blackcurrants. The palate has crisp, chalky texture and fresh red-berry and red-papaya flavors. Juicy-fruit finish."
90 points, Mike Bennie, The Wine Front: "Bright and vivacious style, feels fresh, berry fruited, pretty and decidedly sweet. Sweetness sticks in the craw a bit but you get the feeling this bottle won’t last long around the right crowd. A neat chomp of gummy tannin does good for some balance, too. Fun!"
Reviews of the 2018 Grenache Touriga:
93 points, James Halliday 2020 Wine Companion: "The fancy of freshness. Raspberry, spice, strawberry pie and anise notes fly attractively through the palate, charming as they go. It's a 55/45% blend; it saw no new oak (40% was kept in stainless); the flavours and scents burst merrily from the glass. It's a lovely wine. Serious quality, fun style."
2019 Drink Easy Competition: "Ripe, plush plums, cherries - fat juicy summer red fruits. The acidity is here and strong but flexible tannins keep it fresh as. Delicious drinking."
