Hently Farm 'The Old Legend' Grenache 2015

Red fruits a-leaping (10 ladies dancing, 9 pipers piping), red currant and cranberry. Certainly conveys the colour red, of bright and vibrant juice.

A lightness, an ease, vibrant and juicy. An underlying darker edge, the dark core of the wine, yielding a savoury mien against that initial fruit. Fifty days on skins - said to bind up and polymerise the tannin - has given the wine long silken threads of flavour and tannin. 

Excellent wine - allow it to linger if you can. 93
