Quick Overview

94 points - Steve Leszcynski - Qwine - Wicked Grenache! This is an absolute treasure - not a drop was left. I couldn't help but keep going back to it. Boom!  Whole bunch is the go here - 64% no less. Wild fermented, 20 days on skins, eight months in old oak but for 9% new French, unfined and unfiltered.
Violets and blue fruits plus some redskin and boiled lolly aromas. Smooth and swarve, it oozes charisma. Flecks of savoury goodness, some earthiness and fine spices cuddle the raspberry and red fruit. Gorgeously medium bodied, it moves through the mouth with a street-smart swagger. Beautifully balanced, it lingers and pulls you closer. Rush to the front of the queue for this. Please do. Drink now to five years.

Product Description

As always, wild yeast and time on skins before basket pressing to a mix of new and old, French Oak barrels for 8 months before bottling without fining or filtration. This year, the whole bunch component in the wine is 61%, no doubt adding increased clarity and lift to the wine.

Medium cherry red in the glass with pure, juicy, fruit aromas of plum, raspberry and redcurrant leaping from the glass. The ripe fruit is underscored by hints of Asian spice, cranberry, gingerbread, watermelon, red licorice, purple flower top-notes and some very gentle cashewy oak residing further in the distance. In the mouth, it has more in common with a Pinot Noir than a beefy Barossa red.

There’s space and a sense of airiness as the pure rip flits around the palate leaving a trail of spice. Again, red fruits dominate — plum, cherry, redcurrant and raspberry with a blast of cranberry picking up the pace. It shows abundant spice hints along with ginger cake, red licorice and floral high-tones peeking through. The finish lingers nicely leaving a spice-studded trail and beautiful fruit detail and as a wine that stays true to its Barossan roots, varietal characteristics and downright dangerous drinkability, we are kind of chuffed with our 2016 Second Take Grenache release.

93 - Stuart Robinson - The Vinsomniac
Always hotly anticipated across the Vinsomniac tasting bench*, still remarkable value at $40 - a price it has held since the 2013s were first released (this marking the ranges 5th release by my shoddy maths). Sees a fair whack of whole bunch (64%), not that you'd really know. It's all freshness and berry goodness leaping out of the glass. Yes there's a little bit of the savoury, sapid undertow that really - for me - provides for the scaffold for the wine to hang off.

The bunch is more evident on the palate for me; savoury intermingling with fruit, minerality and acidity. It's a wonderful unison of the elements coming together, the whole is greater than the individual parts: raspberry, sarsparilla, redcurrant against darker Asian spiced hints. Giving, generous, the spice lingering and haunting.
It truly is a wonderful thing.
