2 X Dabblebrook Grenache 2016

A wonderfully food-friendly style, made without any oak. Young and all about the fruit – bright red berries, cherry and violet combine with notes of violet and dried spice to create a balanced and utterly moreish wine. While drinking beautifully now, this Grenache will continue to reward with carefully cellaring.

Grown on vines planted in the 1950s, the Power of One Shiraz is the flagship wine of Old Plains. Pretty florals on the nose, sweet fruit on the palate; raspberry and blackberry dominate, while a touch of spice and oak adds further interest. Firm tannins balance the fruit-driven palate, adding structure and length.
