Wirra Wirra Original Blend 2018

Ah the OG blend - Grenache (70%), Shiraz (30%); McLaren Vale (100%).

For a Grenache dominant blend, its rather more subtle in comparison to what can be produced in the region. Yes, there's certainly a suggestion of the jubey raspberry for which the region/variety conjunction is known. However, here it sits somewhat further back in the profile. 

The palate shows its hand: fuller and plumper; rounder in the red fruit spectrum. There's a freshening acidic aspect to the wine, set against the fruit and with a fine-grained tannin. 

Good wine. 90
