d’Arenberg The Derelict Vineyard Grenache McLaren Vale 2014

This is another excellent grenache from d’Arenberg in McLaren Vale.  Deeply coloured (for grenache), the 2014 vintage has savoury aromas of chocolate, liquorice and cherry.  The palate is full bodied with well integrated ripe fruit and cedar characters, and very good length on the finish.  Ready to drink now, this is a very good example of McLaren Vale grenache and a well priced one too, at sub $30.  Rating: Good to Very Good. Abv: 14.5%. Price: $29. Website: www.darenberg.com.au. Source: Sample.
