Third post on my attempt at a blog and it’s another Grenache. Happy it suits the autumn cool, the weekday budget and the rustic hedonist. Appears to make nicely ripe tasty wine in South Australia’s warmth too. This one’s a Dan’s exclusive and a move in the right direction from overwrought big boned Shiraz. This bargain is slightly rose petal and floral anchored by that coal dusty raspberry typical of the Barossa. Really can’t see any oak flavour and the extraction’s more like a gently made Pinot than a Chesty Bonds Shiraz. Finally the acid seems natural and well settled into the whole, not always the case in wine at this price. You can only hope the suggestion Grenache is getting hip is mere hype. If Murphy’s want to dominate large scale wine sales, may it be with stuff like this.
