Pertaringa Two Gentlemen GSM 2013

The two gents in question are Pertaringa founders Geoff Hardy and Ian Leask. Whilst Geoff is now the sole proprietor of the Pertaringa, the acknowledgement of their partnership via this wine remains as a lasting tribute.

Red fruits, sweet accents, woody spice. A little oak, creamy vanilla and an aromatic that reminded me somehow of candles (having worked in a candle factory).

Soft, cushioned entry - gentle extraction here - redskins and raspberry on show. Soft, powdery tannin with a touch of woody spice that lingers. A little savoury twist via fennel tops rounds the wine out.

Good length, another excellent example of Grenache from the 2013 vintage. 91
