Twelftree Wines Reviews by Angus Hughson from Vinous

Schuller Road, Blewitt Springs, McLaren Vale Grenache 2021 – 94 points
“This beautifully bright and fragrant 2021 Grenache comes off a single 85 year old vineyard delivering ethereal aromas of cooked raspberries, baked earth and Middle Eastern spices with a touch of floral lift. It then delivers with precision and poise; waves of red fruits, dried tobacco and old spice complexity rise up over a long, expressive finish. Tannins are pitched just right for enjoyment over the medium term. Brilliant value.” – AH

Chaffeys Road, Seaview, McLaren Vale Grenache 2021  – 92+ points
“This engaging, modern example of Grenache from 2021 with 15% whole bunches shows a vibrant mix of sweet and savoury aromas thanks to layers of strawberry and raspberry fruits with a spicy, potpourri edge. It then takes a more serious turn thanks to a backbone of chewy, youthful tannins which underpin layers of dense, dark berry fruits. Combined with excellent concentration and length, this wine is a bit of a sleeper and needs time to unfurl.” – AH

Adams Road, Blewitt Springs, McLaren Vale Grenache 2021 – 92 points
“The 2021 Grenache jumps out of the blocks and offers up a riot of approachable red fruits – red licorice and raspberry rounded out by touches of new leather. A robust and flavoursome palate follows with waves of primary fruit, and silky tannins delivering a seductive experience through to a lengthy finish. Superb drinking now, it is hard to see this getting any better.” – AH

Adams Road, Blewitt Springs, McLaren Vale Shiraz 2021 – 91 points
“This bright and vibrant 2021 Shiraz delivers open knit aromas of blackberry and mulberry with a dusting of white pepper. There is a surprising elegance here as well; dark berried fruits lifted by subtle stalky spice, the structure already well integrated thanks to supple, flowing tannins that deliver a lengthy finish.” – AH
