d’Arenberg, The Custodian, Grenache, McLaren Vale, 2015
Such a familiar embrace, the worn fluff of a favourite flannelette shirt. Sweet, sappy, resiny, choc sultanas and choc raspberry with purple boysenberry hit. Holds true to its previous tannin structure of gravelly, rumbly things. Hard to beat the value.
