Cirillo Estate Wines Old Vine 1850 Grenache 2008

This is all class!
Coming from vines planted just prior to 1850, this wine is spectacular.

Deliciously soft and super smooth, it is bursting with character. Old leather, the humming of gentle peppery spice, some damp earth and lots of savoury goodness.

The fruit is handled delicately during the winemaking process and that delicate trait is clearly transferred to the texture. Along with lashings of well integrated integrated oak, a drying and super long length finish this wine off perfectly.

A worthy purchase for a special occasion. You won't be disappointed.

Grab it to saviour now or cellar easily for the next decade.

Available at good independent bottle shops and also nationally through a large chain discount store.
