Juxtaposed Old Vine Grenache 2021

$35.00

The emblematic wine of Juxtaposed, as it’s drawn from both the Wait and Smart vineyards. Its style, one of richness, flesh and silken texture run through all the reds and the quality here is incredible, making this quite possibly the best value grenache in Australia. Deep. Sweet cassis, kirsch, cola, aniseed, creamy vanilla, cured meats, cardamon and fennel. But it’s not all about the fruit. As succulent as the palate is there is mushroom compost, earth and minerals. All that lusciousness counts for nothing without some tangy brightness and this has a high acid line, running the length of the palate, wrapped with slickest, juiciest tannins. Pure and vibrant. Waters Wine Co

 

A sumptuous wine teeming with raspberry coulis, dried herbs, Seville orange and white pepper accents. Yet I can’t extricate my senses from the whiff of smaller oak, used to be sure, but still palpable with its scent of sweet mocha from attack to finish. It adds that little bit of clutter, obfuscating the purity of site, the redoubtable quality of the fruit and the hand behind the wine while drying the finish. 93 Points – Ned Goodwin MW (Halliday Wine Companion)
