Witches Falls Wild Ferment Grenache 2012

There's not too much Grenache on the Granite Belt with most of it blended away. So it's good to see one from the region standing tall without the need of a wingman or two.

Wild fermented, it comes across quite clean and not too funky. This is a respectable drop which is perfectly suited to a barbequed steak.

Lots of raspberry and earthy traits plus a lick of granite minerality. It's a lighter style of Grenache as seen by the crimson appearance. Black pepper rides the wave all the way through and the finish is soft and fine.

I'd happily have a glass but I don't think it is worth the stated $32. Winery members receive a discount and pay only $25 which I think is more reasonable for what you get.
