Kilikanoon Kelly 1932 Grenache 2012


Climb a mountain and you get to the top. This is right near the summit. The incremental rise from the Prodigal, to the Duke Reserve and now this Kelly 1932 is clear and obvious.


Veneers of interest peel off this delicious and elegant expression of Grenache. Planted in 1932, the vineyard sits at 500m above.

Dark berries in full flight. Mocha, a touch of sweet fruit plus pretty aromas of dark cherry and charred oak. Fine spices slowly introduce themselves before some cocoa and dark cherry reappear.

Superbly balanced with a long lingering finish, this is sublime. 1450 produced. Kick back and embrace the awesomeness.

Drink now to ten years.
