The Group Wines, The Quiver, Grenache, McLaren Vale, 2019
From grapes grown on Dave & Jen Wright’s Wylpena Vineyard (managed by Jen’s son Fred and wife Sarah).Powerful, elegant with “Fruits of the Forest,” licorice and heady florals countered with a salty, saline note. Fine sandy, yet supple tannins under a concentrated palate with a long vibrant finish. Shows good balance considering the ABV
Rating: 17.75/20 (92/100)
