2017 Grenache Shiraz Mataro
Huon Hooke (huon.hooke.com) 500ml.
Deepish red colour with a good tinge of purple. The bouquet is subdued and earthy, the palate straightforward and bright, bold and generous in fruit. Good honest grenache, well-priced. 17/3/2018
Drink 2018 to 2027
90 Points - It comes in a 500mL bottle for 'mid-week enjoyment or for that second bottle you just have to have'. A more than appropriate comment on the back label. A great little package too - a perfect match for a burger, and that's exactly what I did.
Such a pleasurable and easy drinking wine. No thinking, no fuss.
Raspberries, earth, soft brown spices, maximum slurp factor the winner. The spice hangs long urging another sip. A fine release oozing approachability. Thank goodness the 500mL bottle stopped me going back for more. Well worth the money.
Drink now to three years. 13/4/2018
