2018 Reed ‘Alexia’ Grenache – Marananga SA

2022 *Alexia* Grenache

Schlieb’s Garden Vineyard, Vine Vale,
Barossa Valley SA

Delicate and haunting in the front of the palate followed by layer after layer of bright red fruits and crushed rose. Time on lees has helped create a soft and creamy texture to the wine with an essence of baked custard tart. The framework is very airy with present but integrated tannins and sherbet like tartness. I call this wine a “Lune Croissant” because of its endless layers and flavour but its ability to be a light as a feather on the palate all the while never lacking in depth, magic trick of a wine.
