Simon Hackett Old Vine Grenache 2012
- In stock
Spends eight months in second fill 225 litre American oak barrels. Bright medium-depth red colour with purple tinges. Aromas of plump summer sweet berry and cherry, with softer juicy strawberry notes. Floral lift adds complexity and roundness to the nose. Layers of plush ripe berry fruits soften the palate. Firm acidity plus toasty vanilla and oak structure the background. The wine is happily fruit dominated and sun drenched. If fills the corners of the mouth with light fruitiness. Excellent with stews and casseroles as well as pizza and pasta dishes, also good with hard cheeses.
