Australia, Adelina, Grenache, Clare Valley, South Australia 2012

Sourced from an 0.8ha block planted more than 70 years ago, the lower yields in 2012 mean this beauty is in short supply. The mellow, haunting aromas of red plum and raspberry are entwined with more lifted elements of dried wild flowers and sandalwood. The juicy palate has a lithe and very composed shape – flavours follow in the tangy berry spectrum. This is powerful yet contained and it will age superbly.
