Part of the fun, but with serious intent, Grenache Wizardry range, this fruit comes from the north of the Heathcote region in Colbinabbin. Made by Steve Webber. Note, bottle image is of 2019 (which is the only difference).
De Bortoli, Grenache Wizardry, Grenache Blanc, Heathcote, 2021
Full nose with thick pear flesh, ground salt crystals, “Parmesan” rind, lemon chunks, steel and white root vegetables. Medium bodied with a cotton sheet like texture, keen spice and plenty of dry, savoury personality. Cool vintage night crisp acidity comes as a coda. A textural surprise packet.
Rating: 17.5/20 (90/100)
