Alkimi Grenache Noir 2015

Some old school Grenache with a modern twist and the type of wine I like to just sit down with and relax. There's interest but it's not overly complicated, something which seems to be  theme with Stu Dudine's wines; a big thumbs up.

Bright red fruits, blueberries and plums. There's a gentle whiff of clove with a faint fruit sweetness hanging about. Not a candied or sweet Grenache by any stretch.

The fruit is dainty and not particularly weighed down. It's quite sessional I must admit. Definitive spice wraps it up with Club dark chocolate like characters lingering long.

Not a bad summery drink either if you drop it in the fridge for ten minutes.

Drink medium term.

Very good.
