Hardys Tintara Grenache Reserve 2016

A fine release: dripping with spices and sandalwood: fruit full of plums, raspberries and rose petals. Supple, beguiling: fine chocolate and amaro herbs. The acidity is just enough to make the mouth water, while there’s a solid persistence of flavour and a fine rasp of tannins.  Balanced, classy.

RRP: $70
Alc: 14.5%
Rating: 18.5/20
