This wine is the ultimate expression of grenache at Clarendon Hills. It has the structure of Blewitt Springs, as it comes from the steepest part of that site, but is refined in all facets. It is sublime in its delivery of speckled elements which shoot like a laser-guided boomerang- only to return with another flood of character on the finish. This juxtaposition of fruit, florals and minerals is one for the mantle and something to keep an eye on over 20 years.
"There is another level of concentration in this wine, delving in to the very syrup of plum, raspberry and prune with a little dried herb complexity thrown in for good measure; the palate is dense and brooding, massively proportioned and thickly textured; long and luscious and full of chewy tannins to conclude."
