A satisfying, generous grenache - like a big hug of wine. Comforting with plush red fruit and some welcome crunch....

Soft and cuddly - as Sara notes, like a big hug of a wine. Low tannin, all red fruit and seems to be higher in alcohol than the 13.5% declared. No oak and soft brisk acidity on the finish. A decent midweek quaff. Chill for about half an hour in the old fridge before serving. Tasted May 2021.
