Z Wine ‘Rustica’ Barossa Valley Grenache 2016

Grenache from Australia - South Australia
Review Date : 27-Dec-2017
Moderately deep ruby-red colour with slight purple hues, a little lighter on the rim. This has a softly full and gentle nose with fragrant dark-red berry fruit with dark raspberries and hints of pepper and spice and a suggestion of eucalyptus. Full-bodied, the palate has plenty of presence, the fruit flavours a little restrained, unveiling soft and gentle flavours of dark raspberries with spice and pepper, liquorice and dark-red floral elements. The palate has light tannin extraction and grip with soft, integrated acidity. The wine carries to a light nuanced finish of dark-red fruits and spices. This is a full-bodied Grenache with shy fruit flavours, showing dark raspberry, pepper, spice and floral flavours on a moderately extracted palate. Match with pasta, pizza and barbecued fare over the next 4-5 years. Fruit fermented to 14.5% alc., the wine aged 12 months in seasoned oak. 17.5-/20 Nov 2017 RRP AUS$20.00
