The Ox Hardy Blewitt Springs Grenache was selected from separate blocks in Blewitt Springs and McLaren Flat and delights with wonderful youthful exuberance. A bright crimson-purple in colour, aromas swirl with crisp and lively florals. The palate is loaded with juicy, opulent red fruits and a touch of spice. Sweet, bright cherries complement soft, abundant chalky tannins and a great length of flavour.
Bright mid crimson in colour before launching into a beautifully bright and expressive modern Grenache style. It opens with vibrant aromas of red liquorice and cardamon spice with subtle earthy tones in the background. An almost pinot noir like palate follows that is fleshy with good fruit depth and power in a slinky, silky package before finishing with exceptional length. Delicious to enjoy now and over the next five years.
