Local Heroes Shiraz Grenache

Grenache, Shiraz 2018

$25.00

 

NEW VINTAGE RELEASE

 

Tasting Note

Vibrant purple-red. The Shiraz, grown on loamy clay, contributes the dark fruit of blackberries and mulberries to the blend, whilst the hand-picked, old bush vine Grenache (grown on deep sand over clay) adds rosy floral and savoury notes. Small batch open fermentation and maturation in older oak ensures the proven synergy of these two, equally matched, McLaren Vale Local Heroes.

Floral, powerful nose. The palate is substantial and comparatively firm, showing the majority shiraz component. A very bright, enjoyable wine. 4 1/2 stars.

winewise.net.au, June 2019

Spicy cranberry aromas with chocolaty notes and an elegant palate with dark chocolaty fruit flavours laced with a nice line of acidity. 4 stars.
