Purple Hands Wines, Planta Circa , Ancestor Vine, Grenache, Barossa Valley, 2018

Perfumed with lifted incense smoke, gentle raspberry jube, rose petals, soft bath talcs, a hint of older wood and fresh turned earth influence. Wonderfully textured. The fruit is lively and bright, in harmonious lockstep with deft tight tannin profile. Excellent persistence now and with a long, balanced tail. Showing restraint and elegance now, and will continue to do so for many years to come.

RRP: $80
Alc: 14%
Rating: 18.75/20 (94/100)
