La Curio The Nubile Grenache Shiraz 2008

The first time I tried this wine, some 6 months or so ago, my over-riding memory was of a Raspberry coulis like aroma.  I'm glad to see that having attempted a rather more analytical look that my memory of this wine hasn't failed me.

This Grenache dominant (70%) wine shows dominant aromas of Raspberry, Strawberry supported by a somewhat gentler Rose water.

In the mouth, the wine is incredibly smooth bodied, supported by generous proportions of the aforementioned fruit; some depth is provided by the Shiraz (30%).  The wine concludes with a lick of peppery tannin and the tail showing some oak presence.
