La Curio Reserve Bush Vine Grenache 2010

2009 Bottle Image

Initially clearly red fruited, with a slightly meaty edge; evolution, fairly rapidly, with a little rhubarb and the meatiness taking on a more beefy tone. Still accented with with red fruit, sweet perfume and fennel edge.

The palate is light-on initially, the onset of warmth and spice is fairly rapid. Baking and brown spice, a little residual red fruit and finishing towards a licorice twist.

Personally I was less keen on this varietal Grenache compared to Adam Hooper's Reserve Shiraz. A well made wine, the parts just never quite seemed to mesh or convince me - and comparatively not in the same league as the Shiraz. 88
