Rock of Wisdom Grenache 2021

Old Vine Grenache, from Peter and Sofi Hiscock.

There's a complexity here that combines a youthful aura married to the depth of flavour that old Vine material brings.

The fruit - raspberry, even a suggestion of blue - sings and works in tandem with that depth of flavour and pull of tannin. There's a throw of acidity that somehow belies its 14.5%

Give it some time and air, for it then further reveals itself with something like chicory root character  bound up with burnt orange peel. It's a fascinating exercise in old Vine Grenache with a youthful vogue, interest factor is high. 92
