Rudderless Vineyard Grenache 2010

From Sellicks Hill on southern boundary of McLaren Vale. Cuttings for this came from Seppeltsfield, d'Arenberg, Rockford and Shottesbrooke. 548 dozen were produced. Other wines coming off the five acre site include Shiraz, Graciano, Malbec and Mataro.

This sits in a happy place. Gentle spice rides through wallet leather and plush raspberry fruit. Engaging mouth warmth, there's depth and generosity here. It's hard to believe it carries only 13.5% alc. as it gives the impression there is much more kick in the belly. A long and supple finish cries give me more.

Great drinking now and will keep for another 3-5 years.

Very good.
