Rosemount Estate Nursery Project Graciano Mataro Grenache 2012
Graciano, Mataro and Grenache have been thrown together with tremendous effect.
Medium bodied, the Graciano adds some attractive aromatics and pepper spice along with soft, generous fruit. Structure and depth along with earthy characters are delivered courtesy of the Mataro and some sweetness right at the death via the Grenache.
Super smooth on the palate, it's almost as though the wine washes in like a wave hitting the beach and then recedes slowly, only to rush back again bursting with flavour. That wash of deliciousness and soft floral aromas were the highlights for me.
Drink with the lights on, it creeps up on you!
