2017 Aerope Grenache 750ml
Aerope represents the very best Grenache parcels crafted each vintage
Deep, ruby red and looks vibrant and shines like a newly cut diamond.
It has an interesting and complex bouquet of roasted meats, mints, sassafras, fresh cloves, nutmeg, cardamom, warm rose oil and cherry wood.
The palate has a grace and elegance, that slowly builds with a solid core of bright red fruits that caress and then taper with bright and mineral infused tannins, this has body and a controlled density.
This is a fun wine to drink now and shows a lot of ripe fruits and late palate presence that most Australian Grenache lack. The last part of the ride here is the best part of the ride. The tannins sit so well in the mouth as they linger on and on. This wine builds with air and gains more darker fruits with further richness and plushness.I would defiantly decant this on opening.
This will age well in the mid to long term but does provide a lot of pleasure straight out the gate.
