MDV, Eden Valley Grenache 2008
Bright as a button, the vibrancy of the colour is overshadowed only by the spicy sweetness of the fruit. Lifted violets on the nose pre-empt the prettiness of the wine but it’s the plump red cherries in the middle that give this wine its mojo.
There are fine tannins at the end, but they struggle to compete with the explosive Black Forest cake flavours that erupt as a veritable carnival of fruit as the nectar crosses the palate.
It’s a lively and vivacious ‘drink now’ wine that is sure to have you quickly refilling the glass…or looking for a second bottle! Worth every cent of the $30.00 a bottle price tag.
