Atlas Grenache 2018, Clare Valley
With travel close to a full stop the drinks trolley tasting team (Jono & Mairead) thought let’s get the atlas out and see what we can find...
No surprises with this family team, the tasting tour was a big thumbs up (all be it within our four walls.)
The Grenache got a run on for it’s super elegant blackberry flavours, (cool climate makes it brim with finesse) and juicy mouthfeel. You might ask where does this fit into the red wine drinking ranks? Think a step above Pinot Noir, more succulent fruit flavours than a Malbec, slotting into the softer, rounder more ‘compassionate” side of Shiraz and Cabernet.
Add it to your line up and you won’t regret it.
