2017 PATRITTI Section 181 Grenache 75cl (McLaren Vale, Australia)
Style - Bold
Grapes - 100% Grenache
Tasting - A glorious display of red fruits of all kinds dancing on the palate. No way is it a shy wine– there are plenty of tannins and acidity to keep the attention, with a touch of oak to soften and provide a layer of elegance.
FYI: There are over 12,000 acres of Grenache planted in China. Who knew?! And James Halliday (the Aussie wine guru) rated this as amazing value, with 97 points.
