2020 The Other Wine Co. Grenache
Juicy, vibrant & spicy.
45-year-old vines in McLaren Vale. Sandy soils. Low yields and handpicking. Open ferments, as a combination of whole berries and whole bunches.
Decanter, David Sly, January 2022
Unashamedly modern, this finds an unforced balance between bright fruit concentration and savoury tannic grip. The palate rides the wave between the effusive juiciness that comes from 90% whole berry and 10% whole bunch fermentation, and the intense concentration of fruit sourced from three old-vine sites in the deep, sandy soils of Blewitt Springs. It has drink-now approachability along with the persistence that will see it cellar well for another five years. 92 points
