2019 ‘Alexia’ Grenache
Barossa Valley SA
100% Vine Vale fruit from old bush vines on light sandy soils. This wine has a fragility and purity that dances across the palate. Slightly tart red fruits with flickers of perfume almost popping in the mouth as you sip this wine. The tannins are mouth coating and waxy, making it “deceptively smashable” in nature but not lacking in fine layers of complexity. Its juvenile framework makes it so delicious in its infancy. Yet over time that pretty young girl will become the promise of an amazing 100 + year old vineyard and become the elegant woman of a wine that it is.
