Clarendon Hills 2006 Blewitt Springs Grenache
100% Grenache | Alc: 14.5% – Earthy and Spicy
McLaren Vale, South Australia

Winemaker’s notes:
The distinct plum and berry flavors lead to pepper and spices and are seamlessly integrated with velvety tannins. A beautiful full bodied wine that is opulent, intensely flavored and striking.

Critical Acclaim:
“The 2006 Grenache Blewitt Springs is a bit more reticent aromatically but several years of additional cellaring should alleviate that problem.”  93 Points – The Wine Advocate

“Saturated ruby. Perfumed aromas of candied red and dark berries, sandalwood, fresh rose and white pepper. Silky in texture, with spicy raspberry and blueberry flavors, slow-mounting sweetness and dusty tannins. Showing a lot of spice today, which adds vibrancy to the deeply concentrated berry flavors. Finishes smooth, sweet and precise. I’d give this a few years in the bottle to gain complexity.”  93 pts – Stephen Tanzer’s IWC

“A ripe, sturdy style, with dense plum and pepper flavors, finishing with generosity and persistence.”  91 pts – Wine Spectator
