Calabria Three Bridges Grenache 2018

The naming reminds me a little of the Monty Python sketch of “Arthur Two Sheds – Jackson.” But seriously now: sourced from 50 plus year old predominantly dry grown vines within the Gomersal area of the Barossa Valley.

Calabria, Three Bridges, Grenache, Barossa Valley, 2018

A lovely juxtaposition of depth and fruit with some signature Barossa elements: Deep raspberry, soaked raisins, liquorice, game meat, rich dark chocolate and pencilly oak. Medium to full bodied: darkly fruited smooth palate with fine, wax-paper tannins and a juicy finish.

RRP: $35
Alc: 14.5%
Rating: 18.5/20 (93/100)
