Looks like: Deep, deep, deep purple, you can't see through this baby.
Smells like: Decant this wine to open it up. The grenache always delivers beautiful raspberry aromas that lift the shiraz. There is a whack of oak on the wine. Give it plenty of air and this will deliver delicious aromas.
Tastes like: This is a classic Australian red. You know what you are in for...a mouth full of flavour. This is a teeth stainer and lovely with it.
Match with: Beef, char-grill steak.
Serious AWBS notes if you need them: CHI – Life force, balance. This wine is made by award winning winemaker Rose Kentish. Rose has since sold the winery. Grenache is often blended with shiraz, add mouvedre and could have a GSM. McLaren Vale is really making its mark for beautiful grenache.
