d’Arenberg The Custodian Grenache 2013

d’Arenberg’s preservation of old bush vine grenache in McLaren Vale continues to mean, in my humble opinion, that their grenache based wines are a cut above most and represent terrific quality for their price.  The 2013 vintage of “The Custodian” is 100% grenache.  Its aromatics remind of redcurrant, spice, chocolate and game.  The palate is textured with fine grained and not insubstantial tannins considering it is a thin skinned variety.  Good length on the finish completes an attractive wine.
