XO Wine Co Grenache 2015

A wine which had me scratching my head admittedly, particularly as I've been fortunate enough to look at a diverse range of Grenache wines from McLaren Vale of late.



Sweet red fruit up front, peppery to finish out the back. Some red plum fruit tracks its way through the middle. Bright, crunchy underripe red apple like acidity lingers. The acid is what had me keeping the glass on the bench.  An okay drink, which looked better on day two of tasting, but I'm not rushing back for more.

Drink now to five years.
