The 5OS Project 2017 Grenache
Cooling dark fruits, spice and violets to begin. Not lively and flashy like so many McLaren Vale Grenache. The wine is sure of its capabilities. Subtle red fruits build through the middle of the palate, while a tight, lean acid line keeps the wine fresh. Well balanced and proportioned. Neither fruit nor tannin dominating. Warming alcohol and a hint of fresh herbs at the close. Much to give in the next 5 years. Alcohol 14% vol.
100% Grenache fruit from old friends and growers the Zimmer family. De-stemmed into 2t fermenters, with 2 pump overs per day until dry. Almost no oak was used on this wine to ensure varietal purity, mainly kept in tank.
