She's Electric Grenache 2018
"She’s electric. She’s in a family full of eccentrics.” Well that takes me back to when I was living in England at the height of Britpop. Anyway, back then Australian Grenache was very much second fiddle to Shiraz, but no longer. Definitely maybe.
Spice, red fruits, dried herb and floral perfume. Medium-bodied, certainly ‘warm climate Pinot Noir’ style here, delicate with a subtle earthiness, playful kitten’s tongue tannin, balanced acidity, and a dry and firm finish of excellent length. Its best days are ahead of it."
She's Electric Grenache 2017
‘Dry grown bushvines, wild-fermented with 50% whole berries and 50% whole bunches, 6 days in postferment maceration, matured in French hogsheads (25% new). A fragrant and pure bouquet and palate, both sending the same message, are the starting point for this beautifully detailed wine. It's actually quite firm on the palate, but it comes from the fruit not tannins, so it can be missed. The length and finish reveal just how complex the wine is.’
