Sometimes it is nice to bypass Shiraz and Cabernet and explore different flavours and nuances. So, here’s a high-end selection which is neither Shiraz nor Cabernet. These wines are the real deal, as their accolades and reviews confirm.
Sure, Shiraz and Cab might still be duking it out in the corner for the crown in a ruckus that has spanned centuries (with Pinot too proper to join in) but Grenache, long considered just an understudy, is unequivocally worthy of consideration too.
Sometimes you just want a wine that's a little lower in tannin than you are likely to find in a young Shiraz or Cabernet… but still with exceptional fruit and acidity … a wine where the fruits are world class but the finish doesn’t leave you feeling like your palate has pash rash. That wine is Grenache or maybe a blend of Grenache with a spoon of Shiraz and a kiss of Mataro.
It's all coming up gold in this pukkah pack packed with goodness from the Adelaide Hills and Clare Valley... a stunning selection of award winning aromatic whites from Dandelion, Kirrihill and Wick's Estate.
