To support Australia, we are drinking a nicely aged one from South Australia.
Pretty color of light ruby with a wide reddish rim.
Showing black and red fruits with earth, light vegetables, tobacco, spices and peppercorn.
Dry on the palate with medium acidity.
Medium bodied with a tangy finish and no tannins at this point.
This 19 year old Grenache blend is drinking very nicely now. Nice and easy drinking, but not as complex as I expected it to be. Still, very enjoyable to drink a piece of history.
Good by itself or with food. I paired it with light appetizers.
12% alcohol by volume.
