Ulithorne ‘SPECIALIS’ Tempranillo Grenache 2016

$30.00

SPECIALIS [Latin] Special, Project.

VARIETALS: Tempranillo, Grenache, Graciano

Tasting Notes
Earthy, brambly with fresh cherries, plums and a hint of dried herbs.  Savoury with some spice.
Chewy tannins with good flavour persistence and balanced acidity.
The addition of a small parcel of Graciano to the blend added complexity with a touch of dried herbs & spice.

Vintage 2016: It was very dry through the months of vintage, which required some small amounts of additional watering by our growers of some of the Blewitt Springs sandy soil vineyards. The Grenache was particularly pretty this vintage – full of spice, vibrancy of colour, great tannin balance and extended length of the fruit on the palate. This vintage showcases the generosity of flavour, and liveliness that good quality winemaking brings to the palate.

Description

DMWP – Peter Nixon – Rating 95

“Juicy and vibrant with plush red and purple fruit. Ripe and delicious. Moreish cola notes with deep red rose petal aromas. Brimming with juicy black cherry, licorice and sweet spice flavour. This screams, “Drink me!”
