Rocland Estate Barossa Grenache 2012

Aged in French and American oak, this wine delivers a dark appearance and I was hooked from the outset.

Good fruit with blackberries being the highlight. Juicy, deep and concentrated flavours were words that just kept coming to mind.

Certainly not confected, over the three days I had the wine open it continued to shine. Persistent indeed.

A handy Grenache and one I'd be happy to sip on and share with friends.

Medium term cellaring but it's good to go now.
