d'Arenberg The Bonsai Vine GSM 2016
The name comes from the small bush vines used to grow the Grenache fruit. These vines are small for their age and grow on shallow soils and hard rock with their tiny shoots giving them a bonsai appearance.
Whiffs of strawberries, boiled lollies and jubey fruit. Earthiness prominent too. The fruit lands on the palate softly before drying out and finishing firm. Dried herbs and black tea-like tannins lead to a dusty finish.
Drink now to eight years.
