Wirra Wirra Absconder Grenache 2013

Made from fruit off a vineyard planted way back when we were all doing the Foxtrot or Charleston and Phar Lap was just a strange way of saying you'd been for a long run.

Red fruits in abundance (raspberry, strawberry, cherry), a little seasoning, spice. I don't like using the term 'Pinotesque', but in such a case it suitably captures what the wine is about. 

Certainly a lighter, livelier, racier example of Grenache - a perhaps shows how excellent the variety can be if made in that style.

Medium bodied, elegance personified, red fruit in spades. 93 

Tasted on: Saturday 6th February: Root Day
