Turkey Flat Grenache 2016
Winner of the Jimmy Watson Memorial Trophy for best young red wine at the Royal Melbourne Wine Show 2017. This is the first time a Grenache has won this award. Fruit sourced from 98 year old Grenache vines grown on the Turkey Flat Vineyard. There's a violet glow to the bright purple garnet hue. The perfumed bouquet hints of red and purple fruits with perhaps a sprinkle of five spice, and the fragrance continues in the spicy, peppery palate that has firm yet supple tannins and lift to the finish where Chinese spices come again to the fore and a touch of cherry chocolate emerges. There's an incredible lightness and elegance to this old vine wine.
