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