d'Arenberg The Custodian Grenache
|Region||Australia, South Australia, McLaren Vale|
When Grenache is good you know it straight away. This Custodian shows its class from the very first glimpse of bright crimson in the glass. The nose is packed with enticing fresh red fruit characters of raspberry, cherry, and even pomegranate. This wine punches well above its price class with fresh fruit dominating. Let it sit and breath though and complex notes of sooty black earth, coal dust, and cracked fennel seed begin to reveal themselves. With time the palate also evolves from those initial fresh red fruit characters into a darker brooding blackberry and Kalamata olive skin spectrum. The wine maintains its focus and drive on a long lingering palate held poised by a tight rhubarb-like acid line. The fine line is further supported by structured powdery lively tannin. This is really good Grenache, from first sight to final sip.
