Grenache 2019 - Black Market Deal #43079
- Textured, savoury
- Clare Valley
Hand-selected from very special bush vines that were planted in the early 1930s, this wine comes from a favourite producer of ours. Grown on a single vineyard, it seems nothing but quality has come out of this plot of land. Vinification in a small open-top fermenter, maturation for 15 months and bottling unfiltered makes this old-vine grenache complex and richly flavoured. Think dark cherry, cranberry, chocolate and seasoned smoked meats when taking a sip and let the natural chalky tannins take over your mouth. Over the tasting bench, there was barely a word spoken, nothing quite seems to do this wine justice like a moment’s silence.

Riesling lovers need look no further. If there was ever a shrine to the rizza gods then it would be in the Clare. But go beyond the pristine, dry and steely whites that made the region world famous, and you’ll find some special reds worthy of attention. Shiraz and cabernet are among the frontrunners, with examples from Kilikanoon, Jim Barry, Leasingham, Tim Adams and Skillogalee regularly receiving top marks from Sir Halliday. There’s also some pretty smart grenache, cabernet franc and cabernet malbec coming out of the region too. So if you’re into plummy, well structured red wine styles, then you’ll find rich pickings here.
